Preparing for Memorial Day Weekend: 3 Tips for Restaurant Owners

Memorial Day Weekend is here and restaurant owners are gearing up for a busy weekend. While some people may be enjoying a BBQ at home, many people don't want to deal with cooking for a bunch of people, so they'll be headed to their favorite restaurant. With the increase of customers comes a busy kitchen. Fast Fix LLC has a few tips to keep your kitchen running at top efficiency this Memorial Day Weekend:

1. Staff an Appropriate Amount of Employees. 

While there can be a such thing as too many people in a kitchen, it's important that restaurant owners anticipate the increase of customers and staff appropriately. It might be a good idea to look back at your sales from the previous year on Memorial Day Weekend so you have an idea of what to expect this year. In addition, keep that staff motivated and happy. Your kitchen will run a lot more smoothly if your employees want to be there and they don't feel stressed. 

2. Ensure Employees are Constantly Cleaning. 

One of the best ways to keep a kitchen running efficiently is to keep it extra clean. On busy holiday weekends, cleaning can easily get pushed to side in the rush to get orders out. Be sure to encourage your employees to clean up as they go, and jump in there to help them if needed. Cleaning goes a long way in maintaining your restaurant equipment, and the last thing you need on a busy weekend if for something to malfunction.

3. Consider Running a Special. 

While running a special may seem like extra work on what's expected to be one of your busiest days so far this year, but it could be just the opposite. If you have a great special, customers are more likely to order that dish than other options from your menu. For the cooks, it's easier to cook a lot of the same thing than to have to make a ton of different dishes all at once.

Fast Fix LLC hopes you have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! With the increase in production from your kitchen, your food-service equipment has a higher risk of malfunctioning.
