Finding the answers to restaurant success is about being able to dig deeply into the business and managing the information available to the owner. Being able to push beyond what the accounting software puts out is critical. Being able to forecast the business intelligently helps to make better purchasing decisions and reduce food waste.

While external benchmarking may play a small role, internal benchmarking is huge. What is today’s standard/average and what could it be? Where are you spending the most money and why?

Yes, we’ve been there. Yes, we’ve done that.

In the restaurant business, two things are vital to success: consistency and cost control. The restaurateur owns the first. We help with the second. Our staff helps to generate all of the important information a restaurant owner needs to make right decisions.

The devil isn’t in the details…the truth is. And the more information a restaurant owner has, the more he or she understands the truth about what is working and what isn’t, and the better their decision making will be.
