"What got me here wasn't good enough to get me to where I wanted to go."
We had all the bones in place that everyone said you should have.
I had SOP’s, quality control measures, enough employees, multiple locations, good quality food, and decent cost control.
But despite all this, my business wasn’t where I wanted it to be.
I wasn’t meeting revenue targets consistently. I was frustrated with repetitive issues, inconsistent quality of customer experience, and employees who weren’t performing how I wanted them to.
I couldn’t shake the feeling that we should be ahead of where we were in our business or past these issues already.
I’d find myself saying “What am I not doing? What am I not seeing here to increase revenues? I don’t know what to do anymore.”
It was the most frustrating feeling trying everything and still not being able to increase revenues or grow the business.
I knew I had found a middle ground, but I didn’t know how to move it forward.
There had to be a better way.
Lucky for me, I met the right person at the right time.
This wise mentor told me what you’ve done is good but it’s not good enough to scale your business.
“You’re going to need to find solutions to the problems you have from different sources outside the industry. Go out and learn.”
So I did some digging and found out that it wasn’t only restaurants that had issues like fluctuating revenues, low profit margins, employee challenges, inconsistent quality and customer experience, and long working hours.
Other industries and businesses faced similar issues and some had found innovative solutions that worked.
So I began experimenting. I tried out different methods, techniques, and business practices in my business.
Eventually I landed on workable, simplified methods drawn from these systems that delivered breakthrough results that 3X my revenues and 2X my profits within 3 years.
My business went from having ups and downs to becoming more stable. Here are some examples:
It was incredibly exciting to find solutions and systems that could change the restaurant industry from the inside out. To find new ways that offer relief and results for problems most of us have accepted as “just the way it is” in the hospitality business.
I’m excited to bring these methods, systems, and solutions to you along with my support because being a restaurant owner is not easy.
Few understand the stress and anxiety over employee issues, missed revenue targets, and the pain of not seeing our families, and the toll on our mental and physical health.
It’s incredible what you’ve achieved in creating the restaurant business you have so far.
And it is possible for you to take your business to where you want it to go.
