Restaurant Observation Evaluation

A Restaurant Observation Evaluation is a review of your business’ overall operations to determine what systems need to be implemented to improve efficiencies, including inventory controls, waste sheets, other systems, and more.

The Restaurant Observation Evaluation review is generally conducted during peak and off-peak meal periods. The consultation is followed by a written report detailing our experience and would include a list of primary observations and recommendations of ways to increase sales, decrease costs, and improve both the guest experience level and organizational structure. The written report would be sent within 10 to 14 days of the visit.

In order to complete this project, we will spend one dayon-site with the balance of our time spent in our offices, analyzing the information, documenting our findings, and making recommendations on how to make your operation more organized, efficient and profitable.
