Dozzy Ross With His Afro-Caribbean Cuisine in Savorwynwood Brings His Experience To The World
Dozzy Ross – owner of Savorwynwood shares his expertise in the restaurant industry, ‘The food business is one of the toughest businesses one can get into. It has a smooth tint to itself on the outside, but the inside world is as cut-throat as any IT industry.’ And yet, you can find thousands of new restaurants popping up every year with a variety of different food business concepts. It’s definitely not a walk in the park to launch and keep a restaurant running. Dozzy shares a few tips you may need while you open a restaurant.
Tip #1 – Master Your Craft
It is quite impossible to open a new restaurant without knowing the food and its variants like the back of your hand. You may have the best ingredients, equipment or skilled chef – but until you don’t know how to make good food, none of that will matter. Learn how to purchase, prepare, and preserve food all by yourself!
Tip #2 – How To Run A Business
Well! Ahem, you may not find it interesting but you’ll have to manage things like the HR, accounting, and finances departments and also maintain boring administrative tasks. If you wish to hire someone who knows their stuff in the finance dept, it is necessary that you know the basics of every department that exists in your business.
Tip #3 – Employee Retention
Your employees are the lifeline of your business. It is a success or failure with their presence. People tend to work better when you show that you genuinely value them. Show your staff that you really value their presence and that their work cannot be done by anyone else. This will help them stay in your business for longer and stay loyal to your business.
Tip #4 – Get the word out.
People won’t come to your restaurant just because it is in their neighborhood. Obviously they may come once, but what could be the plan after that? if you just sit there and wait for them to come – the business will be a gone case soon. Most customers will look up for your restaurant online before paying a physical visit to your restaurant. So, it’s high time you have a solid social media presence.
Tip #5 – Customer Care
The fastest way to make your way to the customer’s heart is not just tasty food but also a good feedback system. Keeping returning customers loyal is more important than attracting new customers who will never come back. The most important key here is consistency. If you consistently offer great food, with best feedback and staffing services, and perfect creative ambience – they will for sure keep coming back for more.
