In the last post, we talked about getting those loose ends done for the coming Holidays. November is coming fast. Here are some more ideas on getting ready.
With more foot traffic for brick and mortar, give your business a good inspection on cleanliness and organization. Put your customer's shoes on again and make the approach
Looking at the outside, are the windows clean? The walls? How about the window sills? The walks, parking lot. If you have a drive-thru, don’t forget to check that area
When I had a brick and mortar, 42 percent of my business came from my drive-thru. I would actually order and check the experience. I started out ordering what we did not have to make sure the employee offered an alternative.
Are walls and windows clean? Smells? Uniforms clean. Was the order correct etc...Then move onto the inside and do the same thing. Customers appreciate a clean operation.
Do you have enough employees or help from family to cover your needs? Does anyone need more training? How about customer service?
