When you start up a restaurant, it can be easy to get tunnel vision and focus on what you want to have happen, instead of working with what you have. Unfortunately, tough financial situations and difficult employees can make it hard to develop a fantastic offering for the public. However, if you sit down and really think about what people are looking for, you can recreate your menu and become more successful. What do people want to eat when they go out with their friends? Does your restaurant's food taste fresh? These are just a few questions you need to ask yourself if you want to remain profitable.
