Nearly as important as making money is losing less money in wrong investments. Here is our list of little savings for your restaurant that can be better spent instead:
1. Cut energy costs
Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of
themselves. You don't believe how much money you can save just buying energy efficient light bulbs and water-saving toilets. Also, many states offer tax credits or other supporting for switching to energy saving appliances. Besides, train your staff to turn off the lights and sort recycles. Not only your wallet but your costumers will also appreciate eco-friendly building materials and glass bottles.
2. Trim down your menu
Observe which dishes are selling and then take the others down. A small but nice menu reduces the spoilage and cuts the food costs. Also, consider using the same ingredients in several dishes. If you want to have more variety try menus of the day/week or special seasonal dishes.
3. Take advantage of social media
It is free to have an Instagram or Facebook account for your restaurant, but it is more than useful. People don't look restaurants up in the yellow pages anymore - they google. Also, humans love to see photos of a delicious served dish. Food-related pictures or videos are mostly the most viral posts on social networks. People will not only share those photos with their friends they will also visit the seen restaurants in real life.
