Takeaway restaurants serving up all types of cuisine from the corners of the world [chinese takeaway, kebabs, southern fried chicken etc etc] may be found in all cities and towns and judging by their popularity, they all are serving the community through the provision of great tasting food as well as generating healthy revenues. It is often the case that with these types of establishments, the specific sales [of say the various combinations of burger meals] are not tracked and therefore whilst the food service business is actually making money; when it comes to looking at the structure of the business from a strategic perspective; it often becomes difficult to know exactly where the improvements are needed to be made.
When we say ‘where’ the improvements can be made with the food eating establishment business we refer to which food and drink products and combination of eatery products are selling the most and more importantly when [days and times of days] they are sold; that is in terms of the times during the say and also we could add to ‘whom’ they are being sold to. Armed with this information which can be determined by making full use of a quality EPOS System For Takeaways & Restaurants the management team will be able to know when to advertise certain combinations of food and drink items as well as to know which customers exactly the push the promotion to.
So with all that has been said above the question that must be posed is just how are the restaurants supposed to note down all of this data ? A note and paper is often seen to be used that is if any sort of documentation is used at all and that is where we see that more and more takeaway and fast food restaurants are making use of restaurant point of sales EPOS systems from which they manage their business. Such as software platform will give the business the ability to categorise suppliers and know exactly which suppliers are providing which food or drinks items; this can be detailed by the various personalities behind the businesses as well as factors such as reliability of delivery and that of on time service provision.
