Summer is here and people are going out more and staying out longer. If you want your restaurant to benefit from the good weather you need to get ready. VF6BC6GMA8CU
Although it sounds trivial, there is quite a lot of work involved in getting a dining establishment ready for a new season. Every season has its own unique characteristics which trigger different behaviors from your potential customers.
For example, in the winter there will be a rise in demand for warm dishes such as soups, casseroles and baked desserts. In the summer, on the other hand, you will see a rising demand for salads and ice-cream, while you can forget about serving soup to anyone, especially during lunch.
So what do you need to do to get your place ready for the summer?
1. Spring cleaning
We know that a restaurant has high hygiene standards but even so one of the first things that any food related business must do when winter ends is spring cleaning and pest control. There are no two ways about it. Food will attract visitors of all kinds. The ones we want and the ones we really don’t and a restaurant needs to be ready to handle both.
2. Change the menu
Like we already mentioned above, different seasons call for different dishes. Change the menu to reflect the changing seasons. Include seasonal fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits in your menu. Talk to farmers in your area and see what produce will be available and make sure you always have an adequate supply of fresh items in your dishes.
