Common Mistakes That Lead to Restaurant Failure
Poor Economic Conditions
Bad Staff Management
Too Much Competition
An Undefined Restaurant Concept
Lack of Capital
Failure to Invest in Marketing
Inability to Adapt to Changing Conditions
How to Avoid Failure as a Restaurant Owner
- Finding sufficient capital for start-up costs as well as ongoing and unexpected expenses (to avoid failure due to a lack of capital)
- Researching the market, including the competition (to avoid failure due to too much competition)
- Budgeting for advertising (to avoid failure due to lack of marketing)
- Bringing on managers and other professionals to ensure that you have all of your bases covered (to avoid failure due to poor staff management or inexperience)
- Creating a smart, well-defined concept (to avoid failure based on an undefined restaurant concept).
Taking these steps can help minimize the risk of restaurant failure, particularly within the first year or two of operations. At the same time, you will need to stay nimble, and ready to adapt to changing conditions. For example, if the government closes down in-person dining, you should have a plan to stay open through outdoor seating or takeout services. If the price of ingredients goes up, you should be able to adapt by changing up your menu or raising prices (with an explanation to customers as to why you are making these changes).
While many factors that lead to restaurant failure are outside of your control, there are steps that you can take to reduce the possibility of this happening. Most importantly, you will need to be a savvy businessperson who closely tracks sales, profits and losses, customer satisfaction, and other metrics. This will allow you to spot and address issues before they become the type of problem that could sink your business.
