How can restaurants offset rising labor costs without driving away customers?
This week’s edition of the Restaurant Business podcast "A Deeper Dive" deals with that specific issue, featuring Kurt Schnaubelt, managing director of AlixPartners’ restaurants, hospitality and leisure practice.
Labor is the top challenge for restaurant companies. Yet raising menu prices isn’t so simple, given that overall industry traffic has remained weak for some time.
Schnaubelt discusses this challenge on the podcast. He also talks about the best strategies for restaurant operators to deal with labor and workforce issues—and how operators that effectively develop strong service cultures generate sales growth.
