Is your restaurant ready for the Friday night rush?

It’s Friday, a few hours from the dinner service you simultaneously love and hate. The restaurant will almost certainly be slammed. With the surge in traffic comes a slew of operational questions, not to mention a frantic, exhausting stretch. Are there enough employees on shift? Enough burger patties in stock? All the big-brand bottled beer needed to make that week’s usual sales and profits? What are those “usual” sales and profits, anyway?

It’s the knife-edge restaurateurs straddle with trepidation. Most are still basing their answers on their gut feelings and a rough recollection of past patterns—“We were slammed two Fridays ago, and this feels a lot like that one. The weather’s the same, anyways!”

But they won’t know how accurate their expectations might be until the night is over and the chance to maximize business has passed. With this lack of planning and insight comes missed opportunities and money left on the table.

Do you make the right decisions? Take this quiz to rate your readiness.
