Customized Training Solutions: Customized? I am a small mom and pop why do I need customized training?
Often times training has a greater impact on your peeps when the trainer is not you! They listen to the outsider because they are not the broken record. I create a customized training for your employees that focuses on your areas of concern. Topics can be anything from customer service skills, team building, safety, up-selling or anything of your choosing. Those classes can be a customized recorded class with your logo that each new employee must watch like the big chains use. The only difference is it has your name and brand on it. Perhaps you want a live class customized to your specific needs of concentration. I am here to help!
"The Go To": Huh? The How To Manual or better known as the SOPs. Is your business running you or are you running it? Successful businesses understand that SOP the standard policies and procedures are dictating their steps each and every day. Policies and Procedures can be time consuming to create and overlooked due to the demands of normal business activities. Save yourself the time and aggravation by letting me create "The Go To" in revenue management, cost controls, menu planning, human resources management, purchasing policies, loss prevention and much more. Why do I need SOPs?
- SOPs cut down confusion and the he said, she said conversations
- SOPs act as a training manual
- SOPs create consistency in your product and operation
- SOPs are proactive verses reactive in human resource matters, foodborne illness outbreaks, accidents and incidents
- SOPs save you time and money
"Chef Special": We don't have a chef! We certainly don't have chef specials what does this have to do with me?
You serve food don't you? Then you need this "Chef Special" because it about menu planning. What is menu planning? We have a menu already? I have seen to many restaurants go out of business because they became stale and bland. They were unwilling to keep up or spruce up their menu selection. Menu planning is the heart beat of your operation no matter what size kitchen you have. Menu Planning is crucial to stay ahead in this competitive market. Why do you think restaurants create new menu items? Why does McDonalds bring back the McRib? Have you thought about seasonal items? "Chef Special" = Menu Planning offers the following:
- Increase Check Average
- Reduce Food Cost
- Creates Excitement
- Reduces Waste
- Refresh the Menu
