The next time you go out for dinner to a fancy restaurant, take a look at the staff there. The restaurant business needs a market analysis before its set-up and during its operations in the market. The said market analysis would generally tackle various factors in the target market such as: age; gender; occupation; income; and education among others. By identifying these factors, the people running the business will have an idea on how to serve their customers and thrive in competition with other restaurants catering to the same target market.
Each franchise group must have an operator with restaurant operations management experience which includes experience with alcohol sales and regulations. If you do not personally have this background and experience, you will be required to have a Market Partner who does. Your Market Partner will be responsible for operations of your franchised restaurant network. It is your responsibility to secure a Control Manager if you do not already have this experience and will not be actively working in operations on a daily basis.
Like every industry, the restaurant industry is deeply hit and saw a sudden collapse. Restaurants are an industry where Americans spend more than half their annual food budget, and they are out of action right now. Since circumstances are changing by the day, no one can know where the COVID-19 pandemic is going and it is very difficult to project the duration of the pandemic. As a result, the entire restaurant industry and supply chain is reeling.
Economics and Growth will examine the factors that have traditionally determined profitability and valuation, including actual and theoretical food costs, calculation of the magic number,â€ and occupancy costs. It will consider growth potential and exit strategies for successful restaurants and emerging chains, including the advantages and disadvantages of franchising, institutional investment and leverage. We will also consider the challenge of scale – how to achieve it and how to manage it once achieved. We will consider the differential impact of Covid-19 on different restaurant brands and formats to understand lessons learned for the future of the industry.
In Britain, a government sponsored “Green Achiever Scheme” has been created to enable companies to demonstrate their environmentally friendly credentials to suppliers, customers and other bodies interested in green business. In the United States, federal tax incentives and recycling programs have been set up to facilitate those companies wanting to improve their green credentials. The number of restaurant franchises opting into such schemes in both countries has been steadily growing, as business owners take note of the public’s demands when it comes to the environment.
