I think it’s time that we have an honest conversation about the state of your restaurant and the reality of the situation we’re currently looking at.
If you are currently not growing, not innovating, or not focused on making your restaurant better, you’re failing. Period.
This isn’t an argument. This is fact. There is no such thing as staying at the status quo anymore. We do not have that luxury as business owners. You are either thriving or you’re dying.
Now, I know a lot of you want to argue that there are circumstances outside of your control that are causing your restaurant to fail. It’s the economy, it’s the location, the community is oversaturated with restaurants, etc. The list is endless.
But how have others thrived when the odds were all stacked against, them while others crumbled because of these circumstances?
It boils down to this one reason: You.
YOU. The owner of the restaurant. The person who started with a vision and built it from the ground up.
I’ll give you three reasons why you are the leading cause of your failing restaurant — and what you can do about it.
