The game is changing
Whether you’re a restaurant owner, manager, chef or server… whether you’re independent or part of a chain, whether your operation is fast casual, full-service, quick-service or takeout – change is in the air. In addition to new challenges, this change compounds many issues restaurants have always faced.
For instance, social media and online reviews have changed the power dynamic between a restaurant and customer. The customer may not always be right, but they are always carrying their smartphone and are willing to use it to share experiences. Optimizing the dining experience must be top of mind for your entire staff, whether they work in the front of the house or the back. That means accurate order-taking, impeccable service and flawless execution.
The never-ending pressure to reduce waste, boost profits and do more with less. Because restaurants typically run on tight margins, smart restaurateurs continually focus on ways to reduce losses and increase sales.
NCCO products — available from your local restaurant supplier — can help you address potential challenges in both the front and the back of the house.
In the service industry, streamlining your business while providing superb service is key to a memorable experience — and to increasing average sale per guest. Our Guest Checks help you do both. Each of the wide variety of styles has plenty of room to write, as well as our signature seating diagram and menu prompt to remind servers to upsell more profitable menu items.
