If this year has taught us anything it’s that anything is truly possible and you can’t control anything. In fact, restaurant owners have faced unprecedented dilemmas this year alone. As the holidays rapidly approach, preparing your restaurant to handle the holiday rush can be daunting and cumbersome. Here are some helpful tips to help encourage your holiday preparation habits in the wild year that is 2020.
Creating A Staff Schedule
Ideally, you follow all the CDC guidelines as well as state rules mandated for restaurants during the holiday season. In fact, ensuring you have the proper amount of staff — not too much but not too little. Although the struggle is all too real for restaurant owners, it is possible to still maintain a staff schedule for the holiday season just as you would normally — despite the reduced amount of staff you may be allowed to have at one shift.
Stocking All Your Cupboards
There would be a lot of disappointed kids if parents didn’t stock the kitchen in their homes. In fact, it’s ultimately no different for restaurants either. The reality is, equipping your restaurant kitchen with all the basic essentials your kitchen staff will need for the holiday rush can really make all the difference.
Incorporate Holiday Decor
Who doesn’t love a holiday decoration? In fact, it’s this time of year where your guests expect holiday decorations in full force. The reality is, having holiday decorations in your restaurant is also a great way to encourage customers to come in to your establishment despite the pandemic.
At the end of the day, there is nothing better than having customers coming in and out — socially distanced and masked up, of course. In fact, getting for the holiday season is important every year, but this year, it becomes incredibly more important than ever before to be prepared for what to expect.
