Episode 138 – Why Working IN Your Restaurant Isn’t Working



Welcome to The Restaurant Coach™ Podcast, it IS the cure for the common restaurant.

Are you feeling ensnared in the relentless grind of daily operations at your eatery? You’re not alone. Many restaurant owners find themselves stuck in a loop, constantly working IN their business, which ultimately stunts their growth and hampers profitability. However, there’s a silver lining, and in our latest episode, we tackle this pervasive issue head-on.

Transitioning from operations to ownership isn’t just a shift in tasks; it’s a complete paradigm shift in how you view and run your restaurant. This change is crucial for scaling up, boosting profits, and reigniting your passion for the hospitality industry. We’re here to guide you through actionable strategies that can facilitate this essential transition.

Why This Transition Is Essential

Staying entrenched in day-to-day tasks not only exhausts you but also prevents you from seeing the bigger picture. Without the space to strategize and innovate, your restaurant’s growth is capped. Shifting towards a more ownership-centric role allows you to apply your vision more effectively, laying down the groundwork for a thriving, scalable business.

Strategies to Make the Shift

  1. Empower Your Team: Build a reliable management team to handle daily operations. Trust and delegation are key to freeing up your time for bigger projects.
  2. Implement Robust Systems: Systems are the lifelines of a successful operation. With the right processes in place, your restaurant can operate smoothly, even in your absence.
  3. Prioritize Growth: Use your newfound bandwidth to focus on expansion strategies, be it through enhancing your current setup, opening new locations, or exploring franchising.
  4. Refine the Guest Experience: Step back to view your restaurant from a guest’s perspective. This vantage point is invaluable for making tweaks that significantly enhance the dining experience.
  5. Invest in Personal and Professional Growth: With the operational weight lifted, invest time in your growth. Engage with industry leaders, attend seminars, and stay updated on trends to keep your business at the cutting edge.

Embarking on Your Journey

Making the leap from day-to-day operations to strategic ownership is both a challenge and an adventure. It demands a change in mindset, a readiness to relinquish control over the minutiae, and a dedication to driving your restaurant towards a brighter, more profitable future.

Dive into this episode for an in-depth discussion on these strategies and begin your transformation from an overworked operator to a visionary owner. The path to elevating your restaurant begins now.

Episode 136 – Profit Pitfalls: The Biggest Blunders That Restaurants Make



🎙️ Welcome to The Restaurant Coach™️ Podcast, it IS the cure for the common restaurant.

Strap in, restaurant warriors. Today, we’re embarking on a reconnaissance mission into the treacherous terrain of the restaurant business. The battlefield is fraught with hidden dangers that can sabotage your success and obliterate your bottom line. Here’s a covert peek at just a few of the 19 insidious profit pitfalls that are laying in wait to ensnare unwary restaurateurs.

🔗 BOOK AT STRATEGY SESSION WITH DONALD

1. The Great Food Cost Illusion:

  • Mismanaging your food costs is like letting a fox guard the henhouse. Unchecked, it’ll devour your profits piece by piece until there’s nothing left but bones.

2. The Menu Behemoth:

  • An overloaded menu isn’t just a diner’s dilemma; it’s a logistical nightmare. Streamlining is not just chic; it’s efficient, cost-effective, and sanity-saving.

3. Training on the Back Burner:

  • Neglecting staff training is akin to fielding a team of rookies against the seasoned pros. The result? A game lost in customer service, efficiency, and morale.

4. Ghost Marketing:

  • Assuming your restaurant’s awesomeness will ‘just get out there’ is like whispering in a hurricane. If your marketing isn’t making waves, you’re drowning in obscurity.

5. The Guest Experience Black Hole:

  • Overlook the guest experience, and watch your reputation get sucked into the void. In the age of viral reviews, this is one black hole from which there’s no return.

Intel Briefing:

Feeling the adrenaline yet? Good. Because there’s more where that came from. We’ve got 14 more profit-draining booby traps to unveil, each one a lesson in what NOT to do if you want your restaurant to not just survive, but thrive.

Mission Brief:

Dare to join us as we deep-dive into each of these profit pitfalls? We’re not just pointing out landmines; we’re handing you the map and the tools to navigate through them. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves transforming these pitfalls into stepping stones towards your restaurant’s financial fortitude.

Episode 133 – Break Habits and Get The Restaurant You WANT!



Welcome to The Restaurant Coach Podcast, the cure for the common restaurant.

In today’s episode, we’re diving into a topic that hits close to home for many restaurateurs: habits. It’s a simple truth that the success of your restaurant directly mirrors your personal and professional habits. But what happens when those habits contribute more to burnout than to breakthroughs?

I recently led a deep dive with my Restaurant Masterminds group, exploring the art of breaking old habits and installing new ones. The goal? To shift from feeling overwhelmed by your restaurant to truly owning your role as its leader.

🔗 BOOK AT STRATEGY SESSION WITH DONALD

Why Habits Matter:

Your daily routines, the systems you use, how you manage time, and even the way you communicate with your staff and customers are all habits. Some of these habits bolster your restaurant’s growth, while others might be silently sabotaging it.

Breaking Free from Burnout:

Burnout doesn’t have to be a badge of honor. It’s a sign that something within your operational habits needs to change. During the call, we uncover strategies to identify which habits are holding you back and how to replace them with practices that empower you and your team.

Installing New Habits:

Transitioning from harmful habits to beneficial ones isn’t an overnight process. It requires awareness, intention, and the right tools. We discuss actionable steps to make this transition smoother and more sustainable.

Let’s Make Change Happen:

It’s an opportunity to take a hard look at the habits forming the foundation of your restaurant and to make the necessary adjustments. From refining daily operations to enhancing leadership skills, the path to breaking free starts with you.
