Ah, February 14th, also known as Valentine’s Day, is approaching this Monday. For restaurants, it is one of the most intense days of the year. In fact, Valentine’s Day is second to Mother’s Day as the most profitable day for restaurants. Those in love are more than willing to splurge on lavish meals to make their lover feel special, which means you have to go the extra mile to prepare your restaurant for this memorable holiday. So how can you ensure a successful day at your restaurant – one that maximizes profits, gives guests the experience they expect and ensures that they’ll come back? Read on to learn more!
Create the Menu for Valentine’s Day
Many diners choose Valentine’s Day because of its holiday menu. This is why it is important to create unique offerings for February 14th to entice diners. Consider maximizing on profits with a prix fixe menu. This kind of menu will ensure that you make a minimum amount of revenue from every customer. Offer customers an entrée, appetizer, and dessert for a set price. Consider giving them the chance to add on extras like glasses or bottles of wine and champagne. Pick items that are popular and also have high-profit margins, so your special holiday menu is both lucrative and appealing.
Prepare the Staff for a Successful Night
Ensure that one of the busiest days of the year starts off smoothly by staffing your restaurant correctly. Use technology to forecast your labor accurately so that you’ve got enough staff to handle your customers and their needs without overspending. Make sure the staff has enough silverware, smallware, serving trays, and of course, food to cook on this day. The last thing you’ll want is to run out of a popular dish in the middle of the dinner rush. Ensure that you’re stocked up on cleaning supplies for the kitchen and bathroom, like paper towels, soap, and mops. You don’t want all the love bugs in your eatery to run away because everything is unkempt. Luckily, H.C. Walterhoefer has all of these products in bulk, so come in today if you need them before the big day!
