One very important fact about the restaurant industry, is the fact that you absolutely need to keep consistent portion control. Ingredients are purchased in weight, count and volume. You will need to calculate the cost of all ingredients in a recipe. Total the costs and divide this by the food cost you want to charge for a menu item. This way you will have a price for your menu for this item.
Fish is not always the best choice, many restaurants offer fish sandwiches but it is normally breaded and fried and more than likely contains more calories and fat than a Tibetan restaurant. If you are craving a burger order a kids size meal that way you will stop the craving and also be cutting out many calories. Again be sure to skip the sauces and cheese. Also pass on the offer when asked if you would like to super size your meal, if you do decide to super size your meal split it with someone.

You should always know what your competition is doing, it is essential to your success. It may be difficult to go yourself though as you would no doubt be known. So send one of your employees instead. Brief them what to look for. It will also give you the opportunity to treat a staff member to something different. How about showing up for work to be told you have to go out to dinner or lunch…all expenses paid!!!

Fourthly, your food, we all like to think we serve great food, but is it? When was the last time you tried it? Does the dish provide value for money? If you are charging twice as much as a similar nearby restaurant, does the quality of your food reflect the price?
Not once do they miss little details like grilled onions instead of fresh – or giving you incomplete orders – I wish I can say the same thing with other fast food chains.
The Holy Spirit’s ministry is partly to help us RECEIVE all the free things that God wants to give us (I Cor 2:12). We should receive them, like manna, everyday. This is what makes the Christian life powerful. It’s not about us – it’s all about Him. The Christian life is not my responsibility, but rather my response to his ability. The Parable of the Sower – (the seed, the root, and the fruit) – will keep us growing and conforming to the image of Jesus (Rom 8:29).
