Will Barter Work for Restaurants?

The Problem:
Empty Tables in Restaurants Equal Lost Revenue

Owners of restaurants know their goal is to have every table full 100% of the time. While this may occur during busier times such as Friday and Saturday evenings and holidays, restaurants rarely operate at full capacity. The amount of revenue lost annually on just one empty table is astonishing! Here’s the breakdown - one empty table that would normally average a modest $30 tab per hour for an eight-hour shift for just 350 days out of a year, equals a loss of $84,000!  And that is just one table! How many empty tables are in your restaurant at a given time? 

Empty tables mean far less income for your waiters and waitresses causing stress, dissatisfaction, and turn-over.  You may not pay your cooks (or even yourself) competitive wages because of unused capacity. Hiring and training is very expensive not to mention the sadness you may suffer because you can't providing adequate income and benefits to yourself and your staff.
