for ways that improve the sales line by building check averages by figuring out
effective menu planning & use of costing strategies.
- Keep all the data: Gain knowledge to check
averages, know which food item of yours works the best on what days, which item
from the menu brings in the most revenue, costs of making your dishes, labour
costs, etc. know all this data &
keep track of everything to grow a business, suggests Chef Faisal.
- Learn strategies to build
The more you promote your recipes, cuisines & the chef, the more it helps
in building the business & the brand. Word of mouth strategy also works
wonders for businesses, says Chef Faisal.
- Invest in yourself & your staff: Seek opportunities that can help you grow as a businessman by gaining knowledge at each stage in life. Pay attention to what you are learning & implement the same in your business. Give yourself some time to thoroughly understand the market.
