Food for Thought This Valentine’s Day

Customer service is an integral part of running a successful restaurant. It doesn’t matter how fabulous your new restaurant looks or how delicious the food is, if the service isn’t good, customers are not likely to return.

Valentine’s Day is reportedly the second-busiest day for restaurants in America, (behind Mother’s Day), as a restaurant owner, it is imperative that you tackle customer service from many different aspects.

How do you deliver excellent customer service at your restaurant?

For a restaurant experience to be great, both the product and the service must score. A failure in either department often leads to a substandard experience. The server is incredible but the food is dry and stale. Bad experience. The food is amazing but the server simply can’t be bothered to refill your drink for the entire meal. Bad experience.

Too many restaurants fail on at least one level consistently. From restaurant cleanliness to brand management, running a restaurant necessitates a holistic experience that hits the customers on more than one level. That’s where BARE International comes in.
