    Reasons to Always Respond to Online Restaurant Reviews

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Wednesday, December 6, 2017

    Running a restaurant comes down to more than simply picking the right café chairs and having a menu full of great items. Now that a large part of attracting patrons to a restaurant is done entirely on the Internet this is truer than ever. Online reviews are one area of this online presence that has an immense impact. Restaurateurs may think it's enough to strive for great testimonials, but as it turns out, numerous benefits arise when they actually respond to these reviews—whether they be positive or negative.

    Improve Search Engine Optimization

    Review websites tend to be at the top of the list when it comes to search engines. This is because people tend to believe what other consumers take the time to say. When ranking a page one of the most important factors that search engines look for is when it was last updated. A restaurateur can ensure that Google recognizes the consistent up-to-date nature of the page by taking the time to respond to every review on a site.

    Provides a Chance to Fix Things

    People will occasionally leave negative reviews due to things such as their food being cold or feeling as though their café chair was uncomfortable. The very fact that they took the time to do so indicates they may simply never occupy the restaurant booths of a particular eatery again. In the food and beverage industry is completely unacceptable to needlessly lose just one customer. If a response and offer to make things right are possible, then that is exactly when he restaurateurs should do.

    Other Patrons More Likely to Review

    Let's say someone shows up to a party and there is no one talking, that person is likely to stay silent too. If people are chatting it up around the bar tables, though, he's more likely to speak up. When patrons show up on a review page and see a bunch of one-sided reviews—or even worse, nothing at all—they might just move on. If they see that actual productive dialogues are taking place, though, they will probably join in.

    Shows Patrons that Management Actually Cares

    When someone sees a restaurateur reply to a positive review that person knows that the owner cares enough to acknowledge when people praise them. And, if they notice a thoughtful response to a negative review they will realize management is ready to make things right. Sometimes, showing concern is what it takes to fill up bistro and café chairs.

    Increases Customer Loyalty

    Building an actual relationship with patrons is the best way to build customer loyalty. You can build the relationship with patrons by refusing to acknowledge the thought they put into leaving a review. However, customers will recognize their opinion matters and that they are worth noticing if they receive a response from the restaurant owner. This is the foundation of good customer relationships, and it's a strong method for creating that much-needed loyalty restaurateurs strive for.

    Online reviews can make or break a restaurant's chances of having packed café chairs. Whether the reviews are positive or negative, every restaurateur needs to take the time to respond to them. At the end of the day, it will definitely pay off.

    How to Reduce Noise in a Restaurant Setting

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Monday, November 27, 2017

    Sitting at a restaurant's dining tables should be relaxing. It is definitely understandable if the crowd gets a bit exuberant when the big game is on, but it can become annoying for patrons of noise is nonstop on a typical night. In many instances, this noise pollution might not even come from other patrons. Fortunately, a loud eatery isn't something the owner and their customers have to deal with. The following tips will help to ensure that.

    Place Carpet in High Traffic Areas

    Some restaurateurs believe that their overall brand image simply doesn't fit with anything other than hardwood, stone or tile flooring, and this is absolutely fine. Unfortunately, it can also become quite annoying to patrons who are forced to listen to loud footsteps whenever someone is walking out of the bathroom or coming through the front entrance.

    Fortunately, this irritation can be minimized by installing carpets or placing rugs in the highest traffic areas of the eatery. This simple solution won't often cost much, but its effects would definitely be noticeable immediately. The only thing left to worry about is finding dining tables for restaurants that won't make excruciating sounds if slid across the hard flooring.

    Cover Up the Windows

    Why would a culinary entrepreneur ever consider covering up windows when some patrons choose the specific restaurant booth due to the fact that it is next to a window? As it turns out, glass is an amazing reflector of sound, and in many dining atmospheres, this creates much more ruckus than people are accustomed to.

    Luckily this is a pretty easy problem to overcome and doesn't require fully covering windows. Some industry experts will recommend putting textured wall surfaces over the glass, but in reality, curtains, blinds, and valances are just as useful. Plus, if a patron wishes to still have the aesthetic beauty of the sun coming through their windows they have that option.

    Invest in Sound Panels

    When looking for café chairs, cooking equipment, and dining table for restaurants, it is likely that every owner has come across advertisements for sound panels. Many restaurateurs have never even heard of such a thing, so it wasn't a terrible idea to overlook these marketing attempts. If an eatery has a noise problem, however, it might be time to look back at those panels.

    Sound panels are typically square objects, although they can come in a variety of shapes, that are hung throughout dining areas to absorb sound. A restaurant's hard surfaces can make for noisy atmosphere, but the softer panels absorb sound vibrations and reduce noise.

    Some eateries have even turned their sound panels into fancy paintings before hanging them. And since the panels can be hung on the walls or mounted to the ceiling, restaurateurs can take advantage of their benefits regardless of the size of their establishment.

    Restaurant patrons aren't going to enjoy constant noise interfering with conversations and meals whether it's a normal Wednesday night or Super Bowl Sunday. The first concern of a culinary master is rarely going to be reducing noise. When the need arises, though, the aforementioned tips can go a long way.

    Finance Tips for Restaurateurs

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Thursday, November 16, 2017

    Before a culinary entrepreneur ever starts setting up restaurant dining tables and ordering food they thought about their finances. After all, falling short of necessary capital is one of the few things that can put a hole in a restaurant. Of course, just because a restaurant is established doesn't mean that worries about money disappear. That's why most successful restaurant owners out there are following very specific finance rules, and these definitely fall under "essential".

    Don't Make Minimum Payments

    Whenever a restaurant owner gets their credit card bill in the mail, they will always be tempted to only pay off the “Minimum Due." After all, this means that during the following month will have more money in their pocket. Unfortunately, the consequences of this can be serious, and the restaurateur might find themselves selling off the bar.

    This is because interest begins to accrue when only the minimum payment is made. Personal business credit cards work the same and if you pay off the full amount as soon as the bill is received you won't build up interest. This will keep a business from having to repay any interest so that they don't have to spend more on commercial equipment and other necessities than required.

    Don't Get Used to the Honeymoon Phase

    Thinking that the "honeymoon phase" is indicative of future success is one of the biggest mistakes in the food and beverage industry. Restaurant dining tables tend to be full the first few months after opening, but this is usually only because people are excited about the "new kid on the block."

    An eatery's first three months are usually great, but this excitement cools down quickly. Restaurateurs shouldn't be basing their financial decisions on the first few months, and they definitely shouldn't go on spending sprees. This has proven detrimental to far too many eateries.

    Be Vigilant About Inventory

    Financing and food may not seem to have a lot in common, but there is no denying that they are interconnected. Restaurateurs need to consistently take inventory to keep up with food costs. Are they ordering more than they need? This could result in food getting thrown out. Food that's disappearing might be due to employees sneaking it home. Taking inventory is necessary for controlling food costs, which means it's vital to restaurant finances.

    Keep Up With Prime Cost

    There are, unfortunately, far too many business owners who don't know what prime cost is. In the restaurant industry, this can result in owners overspending to get patrons into the restaurant dining tables. The prime cost of a restaurant is how much money is being spent to run the place.

    Wages, benefits, payroll taxes, and food and beverage costs are typically included in the prime cost calculations. Restaurateurs need to figure out the prime cost every week. If it's over 60 percent of the eatery's total sales, something is wrong. At this point, looking at costs and rethinking the process is necessary.

    Running a restaurant is no easy task, and most that fail will do so because of their finances. This means that it's necessary to keep track of expenditures and handle money responsibly. This is more difficult in the business world than most people's personal lives, but if a culinary entrepreneur hopes to keep the restaurant dining tables full, it's an essential aspect that cannot be overlooked.

    How a Restaurant Can Increase their ROI on Social Media

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Tuesday, November 7, 2017

    No matter the marketing methods being used by the restaurant, their main goal remains to increase the return on investment (ROI). This means getting more patrons in the restaurant be and making promotional expenditures worth the cost. Of course, methods for increasing ROI vary depending on which platform is utilized. When it comes to social media marketing, restaurants can make their investments worthwhile with the following practices.

    Get Engagement by Engaging

    People tend to expect a social experience when they occupy restaurant dining tables. After all, if they want to sit silently they would've simply grabbed a sandwich. Since social media's explosion of popularity, many people have taken their sociability to platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

    When someone takes the time to post to a restaurant's social pages, it's important for the restaurateur to take a moment to reply. Otherwise, potential patrons seeking engagement are just going to go on with their day and not give it a second thought. Take some time to respond, and you will increase the likelihood of that user walking through the doors.

    Balance Out Content

    People don't often sit at restaurant booths with the intention of indulging in only one food item. Patrons are looking to have baked potatoes with their steaks or fries with their burgers. Just like in the dining room, patrons don't want to be constantly inundated with the same thing on social media pages.

    Restaurateurs should obviously post about promotions or the restaurant in general, but this cannot be all they post about. If this is all that is being posted people will feel like they're being spammed which will result in people on following the page. Balance out interesting and value-oriented content with promotions.

    Focus Efforts Where They Work

    Not every social media platform is being used by everyone. Whether it's Snapchat, Facebook or Instagram, certain people are more likely to go to certain websites. Take this into account when rationing out time spent on social media marketing.

    For instance, it's important to put serious time into Snapchat when looking to fill bar tables with Millennials. Eateries looking to appeal to a wider array of demographics need to spend time on Facebook. Instagram is an overall popular social site when it comes to restaurants.

    Having a presence on all social sites is ideal, and restaurateurs with a dedicated social media manager can often pull this off well. But if resources are limited, the best way to fill up the rest from the is to focus on specific sites based on the target audience.

    Realize There's No Perfect Answer

    Some social media marketing strategies have proven time and again to increase ROI for restaurants. However, remembering that they won't work for every eatery is important. If something isn't working, tweak it or try something else. If you're using something outside of the box, and it works, continue to use it. Some trial and error here and there can do great things for restaurateur actively paying attention.

    Just like every marketing platform, social media marketing can sometimes prove to be a crapshoot when it comes to return on investment. However, it isn't necessary to pull back resources after a few failed attempts. For those culinary entrepreneurs who want to have the restaurant booths packed, it's important to pay attention to ROI on social media.

    How Curbside Pickup Benefits a Restaurant

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Wednesday, November 1, 2017

    Car seats rarely come to mind when someone thinks of restaurant furniture, but thanks to the increasing availability of curbside pickup options, this thought is no longer a strange one. Curbside pickup options are increasing in popularity, and restaurants that focus on keeping up with current trends are now beginning to offer the service. However, here are some benefits of curbside restaurant pickup service for those who are still on the fence about it.

    Customers Are Tired of Fast Food

    One current trend has been emerging quickly is consumers ditching fast food. There are more and more people spending time eating meals at home, meaning that they are either cooking themselves some food or they decided to pick up some burgers from a fast food joint. They pretty much just want to avoid sitting at restaurant booths but still don't feel like cooking.

    Over time, though, people simply soured on fast food. There isn't much variety, and it's pretty and healthy. However, thanks to curbside pickup submergence people are now able to avoid cooking at home while still enjoying a nice meal. While it might not fill up the restaurant furniture, it does provide a much-needed service while still increasing revenue.

    Brings in New Customers

    Curbside pickup has been a staple of big chain restaurants such as Chili's and Applebee's for some time. As is the case with anything in this world, though, people will eventually grow tired of what these eateries offer. However, they are probably still going to seek out the convenience of curbside pickup.

    Curbside pickup can bring in customers who may never have ventured to do so otherwise. A restaurant can find themselves being noticed alongside the big-name franchises in their area if they focus local marketing on the curbside service. People are eventually going to tire of Chili's or restaurants that have their patrons waiting for pickup orders at bar tables.

    At this moment, the curbside service will really pay off.

    Allows Customer Info and Analytics to Be Gathered

    Other than freeing up restaurant furniture on busy Friday nights, one of the greatest benefits of curbside pickup is the ability to gather customer information sales analytics. However, in order to do this, a restaurateur needs to make sure that take online orders. Fortunately, this is something that various third-party companies and apps can help with.

    Online ordering at an eatery makes it really easy for restaurants and get patron information. After all, orders will need a name and phone number attached to it at the very least, there are lots of customers who want the receipt sent directly to the email. This opens the floodgates when it comes to marketing opportunities. Additionally, taking orders online will help managers to track sales and use the information to improve service and quality.

    It can be tough to expand services at a restaurant, but in an industry where things evolved by the moment, it has become more of a necessity than an option. Luckily, curbside pickup is one expansion that will really end up paying off. While a patron may not come in for their first order, they might just occupy the restaurant furniture later if they're impressed.

    How Restaurants Can Increase Online Food Orders

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Friday, October 27, 2017

    Until relatively recently, eateries throughout the country focused solely on filling up their restaurant booths. After all, more people in the restaurant was the only way to make more money. However, this is no longer the case. Countless restaurants now do quite well by providing pickup orders and online ordering. For restaurateurs who have expanded into this area, here are a few tips for increasing online orders.

    Make Big Announcements Via Social Media

    When a restaurateur first begins to offer online ordering, they need to make a big deal of it on social media. Sure, having restaurant furniture fully occupied is great but it's important to remember that many people will place an order with a restaurant only due to the fact that there is an online option.

    These are the people who have decided that they don't want to eat out, but they are likely to gravitate towards placing an order with one of their favorite restaurants if that restaurant has announced over social media that they are now offering online ordering. Even a restaurateur who has been offering online ordering for a while needs to put out the occasional reminders on social media.

    Offer First-Time Discounts

    Getting someone to try out a new service for the first time is tough. After all, if someone really enjoys their first visit to an eatery, getting them back in the restaurant booths shouldn't be a difficult task. This holds true for online ordering as well, so restaurateurs should make an effort to offer discounts for those who place their first order online. The discount is going to influence their decision, and they will also be likely to share the news of the discount with friends and family.

    Influence Patrons into Getting Full Meals

    Increasing online food orders isn't just about getting more people to place orders. Restaurateurs are also looking to increase check averages, and doing this requires that they remind customers that they can have a full meal. If they order a steak entrée, for instance, a little popup or reminder could show and offer an appetizer, drink or dessert. Oftentimes, people get only a single item simply because they're not reminded of their other options.

    Get the Word Out Through Local Marketing

    It's crazy to think just how many people have probably type in their city's name along with the term "food delivery" or "online ordering." Unfortunately, the result is all too often a national chain pizza store or a third party delivery service that pops up first. Revenue is no longer fully linked with packed restaurant booths and bar tables so culinary entrepreneurs should focus on getting their eateries noticed through local marketing strategies.

    Accomplishing this feat should include content marketing pieces that use the keyword “online ordering" and focus on the local area. Restaurateurs should also claim and update local sites, such as Yelp and their Google My Business, with their latest information and the fact that they offer online ordering. Using keywords related to "delivery" is important for an eatery that also delivers.

    Online ordering has certainly moved an eatery's success away from the restaurant booth and into the technological world. Of course, there is nothing more satisfying than having droves of patrons show up on a Friday night, but utilizing some great online ordering strategies will also help snag consumers who would rather eat at home.

    Restaurant Promotions that Aren't Discounts

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Tuesday, October 24, 2017

    Worn out restaurant dining chairs are a sign that they've gotten heavy use, but does this necessarily mean an eatery is profitable? Just because a restaurant is packed doesn't mean that you're earning record profits and it's especially true when people are only showing up for discounts. Discounts are definitely a powerful way to get people to try a restaurant, but they can't be the only promotional tool that is used. Fortunately, there are tons of restaurant promotion ideas that don't revolve around discounting meals.

    Provide Entertainment

    While you can bring in a patron once a month through sales promotions, offering some form of entertainment can keep people coming back. It's pretty easy to make an impression on people with something as simple as a big screen television playing the big game, but why not go a little further and occasionally host live entertainment such as a local band? A person who truly enjoys their night out will be more likely to frequent your bar tables in the future, and you can't guarantee this when it comes to discount promotions alone.

    Offer Discounts for the Future

    While offering future discounts seems like another self-promotion it's actually beneficial when it comes to filling up restaurant dining chairs in the long run. Instead of saying “Stop by tonight for 15 percent off your meal," say something along the lines of “For every $25 you spend, get a coupon for $5 off your next visit." You can include a disclaimer which states that the next meal must be $25 or more, and in the end, you'll end up making $50 for a $5 investment. You also give people incentive to spend more on their initial visit and to come back later.

    Sponsor Something in the Community

    Impressing guests doesn't always start at the restaurant booths. In fact, community sponsorships can impress people who never visited your establishment. Sponsoring a local organization will showcase a sense of social responsibility, and that is what people are looking for today. While you can make a sponsorship a one-time expense, if it's a continuous act, you will end up with the constant promotional tool that can work for you.

    Offer Take-Home Meals

    Just about every restaurant offers to-go boxes and pickup options, but far fewer give their patrons a take-home meal option. Many restaurants now do this by packaging certain meals, complete with entree and dessert, so that consumers can take them home and cook the meal themselves. Sometimes this just involves reheating, but even if cooking instructions have to be included, many people will still jump at the chance of having a meal ready to go the next day. And on the promotional side, social media buzz and word-of-mouth surrounding these offers will certainly pay off.

    Discounts are great, but if you're looking to buy that new commercial restaurant equipment or replace old restaurant dining chairs you need to actually bring in revenue. Everything at a restaurant will cost money and if you are continuously discounting your meals in order to get people in the door you will often end up losing money. Sales promotions should not be used as permanent marketing tools, they are better as sporadic techniques.

    5 Tips for Increasing Restaurant Sales

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Friday, January 20, 2017

    From offering the best burger in town to continuously filling up the restaurant booths with new patrons on Friday nights, restaurateurs have a variety of goals that can make them successful. When it comes down to it, however, it's all about making money. This requires culinary entrepreneurs to always be focused on increasing their sales. Fortunately, there are some great methods for pulling this off.

    Offer a Little Something for Everyone

    There are many restaurateurs that open up their establishment's doors with a focus on catering to specific clientele. Owners of fried chicken restaurants don't believe that they are bringing in the health food crowd. This, however, doesn't mean that a healthy option or two shouldn't be offered up.

    At the end of the day, this could include offering nothing more than a salad or soup on the menu. This means that when two friends are thinking of eating somewhere, a specific restaurant isn't going to be dismissed just because they don't have anything to offer one individual.

    Provide Future-Use Coupons

    Offering discounts is a great way to get people at the bar tables. Offering future-use coupons accomplishes this same task while also getting customers to spend more and return for future visits. For example, there are many eateries that offer coupons that give "$10 Off Next Visit for Spending $50 Tonight". This provides an incentive for patrons to spend more right away, and the well-deserved coupon will ensure they come back again.

    Offer the Simple Things in Life

    While an Italian restaurant may focus on selling great lasagna, spaghetti, and fine wine, these can't be the only staples on the menu. A restaurateur can quickly increase sales if they offer up salad, soup, appetizer and dessert options. Patrons are going to be inclined to spend more on each trip, and these dishes also provide servers with great upselling opportunities.

    Provide Live Entertainment

    While it's logistically or financially unfeasible for many restaurants to provide live entertainment, doing so can quickly help increase sales. First, those cafe tables are more likely to be filled on slow nights where there is trivia, live music, or karaoke being offered.

    Additionally, live entertainment leads people to hang out longer at an establishment. While having a "lurker" at a restaurant booth does no good if they're not spending money, live entertainment usually results in visitors who at least keep appetizers or alcoholic beverages coming during the event.

    Offer Promotions for Customer Reviews

    Restaurants that offer discounts for customer reviews increase their sales in a variety of ways. The first thing is that customers are likely to return again in order to claim the discount that they earned. However, this also creates a marketing opportunity.

    While there isn't any guarantee that a customer is going to leave a positive review, they are highly likely to do so if they are going to receive a discount for it. After all, what good is a discount on food that you don't enjoy? This means that you will most likely get positive reviews online by offering the discount. And when it comes down to it, a positive online presence is always helpful for bringing in new patrons.

    Whenever there is a restaurant that fails, the reasoning can often be linked back to a lack of cash flow. Fortunately, the aforementioned tips can help minimize the potential of this being an issue. Even if the restaurant booths are full more often than not, restaurateurs should focus on increasing their sales from the week prior.

    How to Deal With Yelp and Bad Reviews

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Tuesday, December 27, 2016

    rateyourexperienceOne of the quickest ways to ensure that restaurant tables remain empty is through bad reviews. Yelp has over 160 million site visits a month and has become the go-to place for people who have had bad dining experiences. These reviews can be quite unfair sometimes, but the good thing is that there are some ways to combat negative reviews.

    Respond to Reviews Publicly

    Directly responding to a bad Yelp review is one of the best ways to fight back against it. Yelp lets restaurateurs reply to any reviews that have been left on the site. This turns a review that could potentially leave bar tables empty into an online marketing opportunity.

    Whether the negative review is about shoddy service, overcooked food or even uncomfortable cafe chairs, a restaurateur should reply with an attempt to make things right. This could mean a simple apology with a promise that things have been corrected or an offer for a free meal.

    From here on out anyone else seeing the negative review is also going to see the reply. And at the end of the day, a consumer will want to occupy the restaurant dining tables of an eatery that is willing to make things right.

    Strive for Great Reviews

    Striving for great reviews doesn't all of a sudden make all of the negative reviews go away. However, it will make those negative reviews stand out less. After all, in the business world, you are likely to receive a bad review or two. If these reviews are surrounded by dozens of positive experiences, though, they'll mean very little.

    Accomplish this by asking patrons to leave testimonials. It's against Yelp protocol to solicit positive reviews, but if tables for restaurants are graced by a discount card for leaving an online assessment, people will be more likely to go share their experience. And simply waiting for patrons to finish their meals allows the restaurateur to hand the cards to patrons who didn't have any issues.

    Flag False Reviews

    Unfortunately, it's possible for someone to leave a review even if they have never occupied a restaurant table. In fact, this has become a favorite tactic of individuals who don't like certain business practices and even competitors hoping to hurt an eatery. Although it's not always easy, it is possible to have these reviews removed.

    If a restaurateur believes that a false review has been left, they can flag it for removal. Maybe the review is left by someone complaining that obviously hasn't been to the restaurant. Maybe the entirety of the review is based on hearsay. Regardless, these false testimonials can be flagged, and Yelp is often good at pulling them down in a timely manner.

    Filling up the restaurant dining tables in an eatery can be difficult, and this task becomes even more taxing if negative reviews stand out online. However, at the end of the day, it's possible to minimize the effects of reviews. This is a commitment that needs to be made by any restaurateur hoping for success.

    3 Benefits of Owning a Restaurant Franchise

    Published By: Jeff Darmound  -  Saturday, December 10, 2016

    bloomingonionWhether they don't want to come up with a concept, want to avoid the headaches of finding a restaurant supplier, or simply hope to avoid trial-and-error tactics, numerous restaurateurs start out by purchasing a franchise. A franchise exists when a large restaurant sells a license to a third party, the franchisee, that allows them to operate under the same business umbrella. Franchisees receive a variety of benefits in doing so.

    Prior Experience Not Mandatory

    One of the biggest hurdles between a budding entrepreneur and a popular eatery with great outdoor restaurant furniture is a lack of experience. Everyone begins somewhere, but for those without experience in owning and running a restaurant, this hurdle can seem as though it's insurmountable.

    With a franchise restaurant, though, this doesn't have to be an issue. With every license that is being sold, Franchisors put their reputation on the line and they don't want to take a chance with an inexperienced go-getter This is why most restaurant chains provide in-depth training to new franchisees.

    Immediate Brand Recognition

    One of the greatest benefits of buying a franchise is the fact that it comes with immediate brand recognition. A restaurateur could purchase the nicest cafe chairs, work with an amazing restaurant supplier and have a great concept, but this still doesn't guarantee that they'll ever be a household name.

    This isn't the case when you have a franchise restaurant. Establishments that are capable of franchising are able to do so because they've already achieved success. Whether it's a McDonald's, Buffalo Wild Wings or Cici's Pizza, people will immediately know what's in store when a franchise is opening.

    Easier to Get Started

    Restaurant franchisors provide everything a restaurateur needs to get started. Everything from the décor to the menus is pre-selected in many cases. It's also important to note that securing funding for a franchise could be easier.

    The simple truth is that franchises have proven themselves, but new restaurant owners with a novel idea haven't. A small business loan provider will be more likely to provide a loan if they know that it's tied to an already successful company. This way, it's okay to worry about filling up the tables for restaurants more than where to get funding.

    The Support of a Proven Partner

    A franchisor wants to see their franchised establishments succeed, and this means that they provide constant support. Whether it's through industry training or the simple knowledge of what does and doesn't work, the larger company always proves to be an invaluable resource. For lots of people, having this backup is all of the motivation they require to move forward.

    Although opening a franchise isn't for everyone, restaurateurs in certain situations this is the best course of action. Doing so can provide a lifelong income, prepare an individual for bigger and better things, or simply provide networking with restaurant suppliers and other industry pros. Regardless of the final goal, it can be a rewarding to run a franchise.
