Killer Communication: Creating A Stellar Restaurant Guest Experience
Customer service is king
Not only do loyal customers spend a whopping average of 67% more at restaurants than new ones do, but it costs about 6-7 times more to acquire a new customer than it does to take care of an old one. Investing in top notch service for your current customers to make sure they keep coming back is absolutely the smart way to go. Like in all relationships, communication is key and that surely applies here. This guide tells you how to keep the conversation going smoothly both in and out of your restaurant so that you’ll land regulars who dine often, tip better, and tell their friends about you.
How do you know you have the right people for the customer service job?
Everyone from your hostess to the busser and barback will interact with your guests. That means that you entire staff needs to be prepared to handle chatting with guests. Hiring the right people from the get go and giving them all the skills they need through an effective restaurant training program are the best bets you have to ensure that you’ve got people working at your restaurant who are capable of delivering an excellent customer experience. This eBook covers all of that and even gets into how to handle feedback and complaints, complete with three printable templates for interviewing, scheduling, and more.
