Restaurant Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Restaurant Manager in Toronto:
"Caring is the difference between good and great."
"Caring about the experience of the customer" is a time-worn phrase, I suggest instead you focus on your own experience. If you treat each shift in the dining room as an event at your home attended by a mix of friends and strangers, you can invest yourself in both the pride of the house and its offerings, and in the experience each diner has that evening. When people are at your home you want to put your best foot forward - offer your favourite and best food and drink, offer your best chair, put on music you love, turn the lights down and light some candles. Check in to see if anyone would like a drink, dessert, to try a little after-dinner liqueur or just a coffee. And talk to people, learn not just what they like about your offerings, but what they don't, then learn what they do and why they do it. People will surprise you and make your night interesting.

Restaurant Manager in Kitchener:
"Disappointing Pay Scale Versus Hours Worked."
Negotiate a realistic pay scale for the amount of hours worked including quarterly bonuses and escalating annual vacation benefit. Pay close attention to sales particularly as they impact labor and food costs. Provide constant communication to employees with bi-weekly reports to owner to keep them informed as to challenges faced and recommended remedial actions and associated expenses.

Restaurant Manager in Brooks:
"Restaurant stressors."
Be prepared for the stress of long hours, staff turnovers and dealing with the public. Make sure you try to get sufficient time off, because it is really hard to schedule it.
