Chefs are the creative geniuses of the restaurant world--but that doesn't always mean they are equipped for the business side of things. When a chef opens up a restaurant, we always recommend he or she enlist the services of a consultant to navigate financial, real estate, and promotional situations.
The high volume of cash and credit cards that pass through a restaurant each day make a POS system a necessity. Not only does a POS System track every penny of your sales, many POS programs also act as credit card processors. This makes swiping credit cards more secure for both the customer and the business. Servers are accountable for all their sales, and it is impossible to alter checks in the computer unless you have the password. This helps cut down on theft.
A technology stack, or tech stack for short, refers to a set of technologies, software, and tools that are used in the development and deployment of sites, apps, and other digital products. Originally, the tech stack conversation could include terms like Linux, Apache, and MySQL, and the topic would be about website development. In modern day parlance however, tech stack simply means the combination of software solutions that an operator uses to run the business.
While each operations assessment is customized to meet the needs of each unique concept’s situation, Tech Stack always begins by thoroughly reviewing all operational materials, training documents and technology prior to visiting the physical restaurant space. Armed with an understanding of any outlined systems and processes, our representatives spend time onsite to evaluate everything. Tech Stack will also compare all processes, noting variances as well as bringing to light any gaps in operational systems and processes.
