We help multi-unit operators mitigate food safety risk and increase operations efficiency. If you are using a paper based solution know that you can replace it with a digital solution for less cost.
Less than 20% of restaurant chains are reporting same store sales increases above and beyond menu price increases. The data shows that more often than not, delivery isn’t the problem. All the recent restaurant chain Chapter 11 filings are citing “operational issues” as a main contributing factor of their failure.
Here’s what we typically see when we start talking to potential clients:
One Size Fits All Processes
When in reality every location is different thus making each shift unique. A one size fits all system doesn't work because employees wind up missing crucial steps or wasting time on irrelevant tasks. This leads to inconsistent guest experiences and increased labor costs.
Static Job Aides
Employees are required to rely on memorizing all the information they learned in training. This is an unreasonable expectation, especially, in this fast paced industry with insanely high turnover. Employees are wasting time asking for help and/or flipping through content to find the information they need.
Operations and food safety compliance processes are ever evolving and dynamic. Most clients haven't updated these in years or decades because there isn't an efficient way to make changes and have them cascade through the chain. Outdated processes and procedures cause inconsistency and efficiency issues.
