Whether you’re a restaurant owner or franchise manager, you may feel frustrated at times by how difficult it is to up your profit margin without cutting corners or sacrificing quality. We understand that frustration and are here with good news: you shouldn’t have to prioritize necessities, and you definitely shouldn’t compromise when it comes to what you offer your customers.
Those tempting hacks to increase overhead will, simply put, save you pennies in the present and lose your consumer base in the long run.
Instead, we offer you an alternative: three creative ways for restaurants to save money without forfeiting the future of your business.
Know Where Your Money Goes
It’s frankly incredible how hard utility companies work to make their bills and rates incomprehensible. Unless you have a deep background in data analysis, hours of free time, and perhaps a thesaurus handy, the hard truth is you probably aren’t sure exactly what you’re being charged for each month, utility-wise.
You see, restaurants use an enormous amount of energy, and that’s a necessity, one that we aren’t recommending you slash during next month’s budgeting meeting. However, there are certainly ways that you can save money on resources such as gas that are difficult to know about unless you’re an industry specialist.
Get Insider Rates
Just like restaurant owners work with a few choice vendors to save money, working with just one or two utility or energy companies will get you far better rates — a bigger bang for your buck.
This is a strategy many restaurant owners simply aren’t aware of, and thus don’t take advantage of; or, if they do try to, the energy companies still won’t offer the best possible deal but may settle for a negotiated price.
Instead, try partnering with an expert team who knows the ins-and-outs of the energy world. With custom-designed contracts and internal connections for reduced rates, what was once a headache can soon become the heart of profit margin increase within your restaurant.
Leverage Your Strengths… and Seek Support in Your Growth Areas
You’re a restaurant owner. If you had to count the number of different tasks you facilitate, delegate, contemplate, and complete in one day… well, you don’t have time to make a list that long.
Recognize and flex those strengths. There’s a reason that your restaurant is thriving and that reason is you and your passion.
So don’t overwork yourself doing a job that someone else — someone more qualified — can do. Our data analysis team will work with you, on your schedule, to create an energy maximization and conservation plan that will save your restaurant money that can then be better used (or saved) elsewhere.
Where? Well, we can’t help you there — that’s your area of expertise.
