One week open today and thanks to our partner kountapos we've been tracking the impact of the pop-up OzHarvest Café. Their point of sale system not only tracks every dollar spent at the café but also connects to our very own impact webpage with live updates and stats. See the contributions so far at https://www.kounta.com/ozharvestcafe/ (link in bio)
So, you’ve decided to open, or already have a restaurant - Go you! As the options for diners continue to increase and the bar is set higher and higher, it’s the little details that set businesses apart. A thoughtful, beautifully designed menu is integral to today’s dining experience and something customers absolutely expect from a modern venue. Your menu is a chance to show your customers who you are – your ethos as a brand, your taste and your flair, without saying a word. It’s one of the first impressions people will have of your venue, so it’s important that you really nail it and make it part of your brand story. Head to the link in our bio for our 5 menu design tips to suit your style, and our simple PDF template you can help yourself to if you like.
The OzHarvest Café reached over $10,000 raised over the weekend! Thank you to everyone who has come in for lunch or a coffee so far and to our partner kountapos who are using data from their point of sale system to help reduce food waste.
The Awards season in hospitality often sparks a sense of inspiration for many. For some it might inspire them to work more closely with local farmers and producers, others might be left rethinking their brand, and for many, it might fuel a desire to open a restaurant of their own. But desire and inspiration alone won’t create reality. Restaurants are a dynamic and broad collective of businesses; from Quick-Service style to Fine Dining, encompassing ethnic foods like Indian, Thai or Mexican, featuring Burger Joints and Vegan businesses, they are the ultimate vehicle to express your Food and Beverage concept and can offer a very good return on invested capital. So why wouldn’t you? Well, whilst opening a Restaurant is an incredibly exciting adventure, it’s also deeply complex in equal parts. With an imposing financial investment and the high risk of hospitality’s most competitive segment, opening a restaurant deserves careful consideration and deliberate, thorough planning to ensure success. We’ve broken down the three key areas to focus on, and rounded up the best resources to help create your next reality. Link in Bio.
