Are you looking for a way to raise your restaurant’s sales? Dinerware Catering POS systems can pump up your profits by adding catering services to your list of services! If you are fortunate enough to have space for a private dining room or meeting room, you are perfectly poised to offer on-site catering; in a more restricted location, off-site catering is the way to go. Either way, catering offers triple benefits: you increase revenue, introduce new customers to your cuisine, and generate great word-of-mouth advertising!
Your access to wait staff makes offering serving service a natural – just be very careful to keep schedules separate but coordinated. Maintaining a list of servers who just work catering jobs will help ensure that your restaurant service does not suffer. You will need to design a menu specifically for catering, as in-house specialties that are delectable when served fresh and piping hot may not be as appetizing hours later. Create special menus for holidays, such as Christmas and Passover, as well as menus suited for particular events.
