FROM THE FIRST FEW PAGES:
Taken from years of hands-on experience from an industry expert and a Georgia Restaurateur of the Year, the author takes you through essential business topics. While the issues are short and to the point, they cover the most crucial part of operating or opening a restaurant. They cover the business side of restaurants. The book's goal is for each of the 18 steps to provide the reader with lifelong knowledge within areas that can make them more money in restaurants and in business. There is no better time for this book than there is now. It arrives at a time when every restaurant owner is trying to save their business.
The book's first part includes steps on contracts like the lease, operating agreements, term sheets, and general contractor. Next, it delves into operational costs, marketing, insurance, and accounting, to the financial reporting and build-out of a restaurant. While the steps are quick and the book is easily read, they all have highly pertinent information in them, which assists in creating more knowledge and saving money opportunities.
The middle part of the book includes areas of analysis. The analysis consists of financial areas of the business, human resources, sales mixes, costs, and inventory information. Each topic is highly thought out and pertinent to any restaurant or small business operation.
The last part of the book is an analysis of areas that can suck a business dry. Topics like sales, labor, theft, and taxes are added to the book to increase awareness of all areas of business operations.
Also included in the book are QR codes that take the reader to websites, forms, examples, and recommendations simply by scanning the code. Using the QR codes seems to bring some technology to the pages, whereas one would have had to punch in a website address in the past. Now, the reader can scan the code and is taken immediately to the website.
Within the book are real-life stories by the author about happenings at restaurants. They break up the book's business tone with some funny guest experiences and unusual incidents. Keep an eye out for the one with the guy named Travis.
Several of the stories provide an insight into the issues restaurant operators face when serving their guests and understanding the psyche of individuals.
