To say that profit margins in the foodservice industry are tight is an understatement. Commodities and labor markets can fluctuate wildly, putting ever-increasing pressure on operators to control their costs while increasing profits.
There's not much anyone can do about market fluctuation. However, looking at cost centers that are within your control, like how tableware is cared for, can help to reduce replacement rates and encourage repeat visits, leading you to better profit margins.
Not following proper care and maintenance for your melamine dinnerware - or china, for that matter - can lead to staining. But that, too, is well within your control so long as your staff are educated about how to treat this necessary investment. We're going to show you how an educated and well trained labor force is key to avoiding staining and/or removing it, and why doing so can help you earn repeat guests and control costs in an unpredictable world.
