Major Issues Faced by a Restaurant
1. Customer Reviews:
Customers are the most aware and connected in this digital world. They have a word about your restaurant much before visiting your restaurant. A bad customer review can affect the overall impression created over the years digitally. As per a study, a chance of a customer not choosing your restaurant is as high as 20% because of the review that they have read online.
2. Keep up with the Trends:
The trends are digital propagation and keep the spirit alive in its users. When a restaurant keeps up with the trends there are two major expenses to be done. 1. Changing the menu or updating the menu items at regular intervals. This leads to additional expenses on food trials, marketing, food photography, etc. 2. Interior changes have to be done as per the need of the hour. This can be done every 2-3 years, to keep up in the eyes of their customers.
3. Customer Handling:
Handling retail customers is one of the toughest jobs. Sometimes, the customers themselves create havoc around, this disturbs the existing customers to stay longer, hence gathering negative experience overall. So managing such customers becomes a big challenge when the right kind of personnel is not appointed.
4. Employee Handling:
Employees are the fuel needed for your restaurant to run smoothly. They need special attention in terms of appraisals, healthy competition. The attrition ratio is skyrocketing even with the minimum hike given to employees in this industry.

But with the introduction of POS software, inventory management has eased 10 times for all the restaurant types.
To conclude, there are several issues regularly faced by a restaurateur. In case they don’t fulfil them, chances can occur for a restaurant to fail and leave the industry.
