Whether it’s #saveourrestaurants or #EatOutToHelpOut, one thing is certain, hospitality industry experts, restaurant owners and journalists are covering stories about restaurants amidst COVID-19.
Now, restaurant technology futurist and startup founder Rom Krupp, has launched an infographic showing a prescriptive approach to help restaurants achieve profitability, even with social distancing guidelines in place.
Restaurants must function at 75% capacity in order to achieve profitability. With many restaurants operating at 50% capacity or less, how do they make up the remaining 25%?
Krupp says the three main contributing factors for restaurant recovery are:
- Contactless dining;
- Labor optimization; and
- Changing the customer journey
Each factor above has a specific combination of technology and process that, followed prescriptively can help restaurants to work towards profitability in a socially distanced and contactless environment.
