Happy New Year! As a restaurant owner, you know what this means: time to change up the menu with a few delicious additions. In the food business, it is important that you keep your customers coming back for more. The number one way to do this is by trying new recipes and challenging yourself to create better dishes.
Need a few pointers? We have some advice to offer…
- If you are unsure of a dish, make it a special. If you get good feedback and the dish is in high demand, add it to the menu.
- Does your restaurant have a classic item? Never rid of that classic item, but what you CAN do is make a new item with a twist on the classic recipe.
- Look into new ways to present your dishes (new plates, new colors, new garnishes etc.)
- Buy an ingredient that you not normally cook with and get creative.
With a few new additions to your menu this year, you are sure to see a change in pace. Having the same menu for years may get old and boring- that is the last thing you want your customers to think about your restaurant.
While you are getting ready for the new year, it may also be a good idea to check on your restaurant liability insurance. Any changes in your business may result in a change in policy. Once you are done making up that new and improved menu, be sure to come speak with us!
