Whether you’re a Fortune 500 company or a local pizzeria owner, you’re in business to be profitable. As any savvy CEO or small proprietor knows, there are certain categories on your ledger that can’t be addressed; consistent overhead like rent, materials, taxes etc. There are, however, some areas where, with a little ingenuity, outside-the-box thinking and good old elbow grease, can have a very positive impact on the bottom line.
Converting To Propane Can Help Save Your Business Money
Although many of these rules apply to businesses of all sizes, let’s stick with the example of a restaurant, best known perhaps for their choice steaks. As the old saying goes “In order to make money you have to spend money.” But, a wise restauranteur understands what expenses add value to their business and where there is opportunity for savings.
Certainly there is no room to skimp on the actual product, in this instance, the food. Your customers deserve the best, something they simply can’t anywhere else. When they’re thinking steak, you want your establishment to be the first thing that comes to mind. Of course proper advertising and promotion will help achieve this goal, but if the steaks are just “so so”, you can’t count on a return visit.
The same goes for service. You want to hire the friendliest, best wait staff, chef, cooking crew and hostesses available. It goes without saying you’ll need to price your entrees appropriately while offering portions that not only justify the cost, but leave the customer feeling they got more than their money’s worth.
You’ve already negotiated your rent, so where else can you save money? Dig a bit deeper…
Chances are your kitchen crew may be cooking using natural gas, or, in some instances, electric. Why?
