7 Lessons for running your Restaurant from Game of Thrones

Tyrion Lannister – Strengths and Weaknesses.

got4Tyrion is a dwarf in a world that is ruled by tall warrior kings.  He will never be a great warrior – he knows it, he accepts it and becomes one of the most powerful characters in Kings Landing by focusing on his strengths.  He is smart, educated and introspective.  He looks critically at the Empire his family rules and recognises it for all it’s strengths and weaknesses, along with his own strengths and weaknesses.

Every restaurant has weaknesses, whether it is poor location, expensive staff, poor access to fresh produce, but what are your strengths?  Are they great flair for creative menus, building a team that delivers great customer service, running a great kitchen?

What are your personal strengths and weaknesses and how have you built your team around them?

Let me give you some advice, bastard.  Never forget what you are.  The rest of the world will not.  Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.

Is Poor SEO Killing Your Restaurant?

Too many times we see customers with websites that are costing restaurants thousands of dollars every month through poor design, poor messaging and poor SEO. If your website could be improved to bring in 200 extra visits per month and just 10% of those made a booking, and each booking was for 2.5 seats on average at $50 a seat, you would have an extra $2,500 in revenue a month. A 30% food cost, that is $1,750 in profit extra a month. This ignores those customers coming back as regulars – which is more profit.

Remember, if these customers aren’t finding your Restaurant, they are finding your competitors.
