How Data Can Guide Decisions for Your Restaurant

When considering new menu items or overseeing staff, you make countless decisions every day that directly impact your restaurant business. Labor shortages, supply chain issues, rapid inflation, and other industry challenges add complexity to these choices. At the same time, industry evolution, such as more ways to order and pay, gives you even more decisions to weigh.

With restaurant tools powered by automation, you have access to a wealth of information that can guide decision-making, from customers’ menu preferences to daily sales trends. Analyzing this data can help you uncover weaknesses, identify successes to capitalize on, and make tough decisions on everything from daily staffing to long-term expansion planning. It can give you insights that help you cut through the complexity and get in front of potential problems so your restaurant runs more smoothly. However, making time to go over the information, let alone map data points to decisions you need to make can be its own challenge. Yet, harnessing insights from the data you collect every day doesn’t have to be a daunting task. In this eBook we’ll explore what types of data you can review to make impactful decisions for your restaurant and how, with key learnings and advice from other folks in the business.
