Restaurants & Cafés

The importance of customer experience

For a franchised network of restaurants or cafés, success or failure is directly linked to guests’ experiences and how the local business lives up to their expectations.

The three most crucial factors are: 

  • The quality of the product 
  • The service 
  • The atmosphere 

You, as the owner or manager of the brand, know exactly what’s required. No brand is built overnight, and a strong brand can only be crafted with years of careful customer service, the development and redevelopment of menus and restaurants, consistent marketing and constantly responding to guests’ feedback.

Geographically dispersed restaurants/cafés

In addition, leading and supporting a network of geographically dispersed locations offers a much greater challenge than running a single local unit. If the various restaurants are independently owned by franchisees, the complexity increases exponentially. You all share a common, customer-facing brand, and as the network grows and is scattered across a city, a region or perhaps even half the world, the challenge of cohesion increases exponentially.

Digital tools for support and quality control of daily routines

You need tools and methods to make your operational support and quality control systems scalable without growing your central admin. Maintaining operational consistency requires all employees to understand and to work according to your common brand standards and conceptual framework.

At the same time, both local managers and central administrators need tools to follow up so that all restaurants meet these requirements on a daily basis. Nothing kills your brand faster than individual restaurants “freestyling” with their own solutions, leading to confused and/or disappointed guests.

Luckily, you’ve just found the solution to these challenges!
