5 chips for a summer cafe

1. Service
In summer, there is not enough visual control. A good way to grow in the eyes of guests is to make sure that they do not have to try to attract the attention of waiters in dozens of different ways. The system of calling waiters looks stylish and can bring an additional profit to a cafe or restaurant. For some, the opportunity not to wait, but simply to click on a button, will be a decisive argument.

The other side of the service is not visible to the guest, but no less important. It is about the service, diagnostics and repair of your cafe equipment. Not working refrigerator or cockroaches in the oven (video), can spoil not only the mood, but also the image. We strongly recommend that you take care of concluding a contract for the maintenance of equipment for restaurants in advance.

2. Service speed
With the summer platform for the waiters, getting more work. And service speed continues to be a priority. To maintain a whole army of personnel – in today’s realities, is impractical. The Mobile Waiter program will be the solution. It is installed on staff mobile phones. Now it’s enough for them to simply enter the customer’s order into the program so that he gets into the kitchen, and not run back and forth. In the program you can leave comments for each dish, divide the dish into portions, place several orders for one table. Agree, this is practical.
3. Image
The electronic menu in the restaurant is already a must have. There are three reasons for this:

Photos, large and juicy, a dish on which one wants to try.
No waiters accusations of slowness. The speed of the order depends only on when the guest finishes choosing and clicks the “Place an order” button.
It is interesting and modern. A certain progressive audience will come to your institution, just to see how the electronic menu works.

4. Management and control
You do not have a program for accounting in a restaurant? There are two options. Either you think about it, or there will be chaos in your institution. Without tools for management and control, you will not be able to simultaneously monitor the movements in the warehouse, deliveries, the operation of the kitchen, while watching that none of the “friends” put their hand in the cash register. With the capabilities of a restaurant automation program, this is real.
5. Equipment
Summer cafe with barbecue, attracts attention. Shish kebab on a live fire and with a smoke, will create the right atmosphere and a desire to have a good meal with your guests. But the fact is that there are a lot of summer cafes with barbecue facilities, and in most of them, they cook delicious barbecue. How will your institution stand out? One way is to replace the barbecue, a more memorable alternative.

Argentinean grilled parilla may be this alternative. In addition to the exotic name, the Argentinean grill has an equally exotic and memorable look. In Paris, you will be able to cook all kinds of steaks, charcoal grills and the same barbecue, surprising not only the taste, but also the process of cooking on the Argentinean grill. And they are sure that most of the guests will also tell their friends that they ate a steak cooked on a real Argentinean grill, and that it was delicious and simply beautiful.
