Restaurant Owners: There Is No Going Back to Normal
I just spoke at the first industry trade show since the pandemic. It was the Nightclub and Bar Show in Las Vegas, Nevada at the end of June 2021. I loved being back on the road and being on stage with a live audience. So on this episode of The Restaurant Prosperity Formula, I talk about the lessons we’ve learned since March 2020, how they’ll shape restaurants for the future and what I see as the outlook for the restaurant and hospitality industry. For example, we learned a smaller restaurant with a smaller menu is better and nimbler. As for the future, you’re going to see a lot of the restaurants that closed down reopened by any Tom, Dick or Harry, and the competition will come back. So, to help you, the rest of the podcast is my recommendation of a short action plan. There is no getting back to normal. We are in a new normal and restaurant owners who adapt and make the best of it will be the strongest in the future.
