How Restaurant Labor Consulting Works

Our mission is to empower restaurants like yours to efficiently manage labor costs, improve scheduling practices, and maximize staff productivity, ultimately boosting your profitability and long-term success. Here is how we accomplish that:

Step One

Analyze Your Current Labor Costs

Are your labor costs too high, or are your sales too low? We start your restaurant labor consulting by thoroughly reviewing your current labor expenses to identify areas for improvement. Our team will assess your labor-to-sales ratio, ensuring it aligns with industry standards and your specific needs. Additionally, we can create a detailed Proforma analysis that establishes your ideal labor cost in relation to other cost centers, providing you with a clear roadmap for cost optimization. We’ll also evaluate your current scheduling practices to uncover opportunities for efficiency.

Step Two

Implement Efficient Labor Practices

Efficient scheduling is the cornerstone of labor cost management. We’ll recommend and assist you in implementing advanced scheduling software, or if you already have a system in place, we’ll help you utilize it more effectively. Our restaurant, bar, and gastropub labor consulting experts will work with you to make data-driven suggestions for your restaurant’s hours of operation and create optimized schedules that utilize phased in and out times. We’ll even help you cross-train your staff so they can take on multiple roles, enhancing flexibility and reducing labor costs. Throughout the process, we provide ongoing support, implementing changes, and analyzing results to ensure continuous improvement
