Quick Tip

Your Receiving Practices May Be Contributing to Your Food Cost Problem

There are two primary reasons for checking deliveries. The first is to ensure that you get exactly what you ordered, while the second is to make certain you get what you are paying for. Purchase specifications are established based on the standard recipes you developed for your operation. All of those written specifications are for naught if the person checking the delivery isn't aware of what was ordered. Ask yourself what document the person in charge in charge uses to check the delivery. In almost every case it is the delivery invoice. While it may be an indication of what the supplier put on the truck, it is not 100-percent accurate of what was ordered.

Thought For The Day

"Yesterday is a canceled check: Forget it. Tomorrow is a promissory not: Don't count on it. Today is ready cash: Use it!"

Job Enrichment

When promotion is out of the question, employees cabn be given added duties and responsibilities to make their jobs more satisfyting and to increase their experience and capabilities. This may turn ouit to be a permanent part of the job from then on or it might be a temporary assignment.

Quick Tip

Presence and Service

The difference between a customer leaving a 10% tip or 30% tip depends mostly with the personal connection a server makes with a customer. Presence increases the personal connection between people. In fact, without presence, there is no persoanl connectiona at all.

Just as a distracted state of mind creates irritation, presence makes people feel more positive. What do you think the impact (or lack of it) might be on how well-served your customers feel in your restaurant?
