I know you agree that one of the greatest challenges you face running restaurants is staff. Going a step further, what happens when you lose a “Key” team member? I had this problem many times when I ran restaurants. All is well, things are running smooth, until they’re not!
Does your operation have a “Plan B”? A backup when the unexpected occurs?
Most of the time this happens in the kitchen. You just got notice from your chef that they’re moving on to your competitor. Your customers love your food and now the person responsible for making it all happen just gave you two weeks. Are you feeling the heat?
Well no worries. Today I’m talking with Mr. Daryle Degan, a charming Scot who noticed both an increase in demand from restaurants to find quality staff and the struggles candidates faced when navigating their way to the perfect job. As a seasoned veteran Chef himself, Daryle speaks the language. He knows instinctively the importance of “fit” and can exactly match highly experience and vetted candidates to each restaurant challenge. His company is called MaineCater www.mainecater.com. When you have a need, Daryle’s the one to call.
MaineCater isn’t your typical recruitment company. They know the inner workings of the hospitality industry and what it’s like to work those 80+ hour weeks. What separates them from the competition is that they’re ready to jump in anytime, anywhere. In 2019, MaineCater will launch into New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
No matter where you run your restaurant, you have to be resourceful.
If you have a need, you can be sure there’s a source to meet that need. You just need to take a deep breath, take a look around and find the answer to any challenge you face. This is how to run a restaurant folks…the only way.
Now go out there and Rock Your Restaurant!
