Table turnover is a widely accepted profitability metric that restaurants keep track of. The more people you serve, the higher your sales, and the higher your profitability too. Assessing table turnovers is not rocket science, but ensuring stellar table turnovers is certainly a tricky job. The number of diners that you can serve at any given time depends not only on the number of tables you have, but also on the in-person dining guidelines in your locality, given the rules surrounding the pandemic. In order for you to increase the number of people who would gladly come to your restaurant to spend their time and money primarily depends on the experience you offer them. You can leverage technology to offer your customers an experience they will truly enjoy. Automation in the restaurant industry has advanced exponentially, further enabling restaurants to optimise operations in order to meet the customers’ needs while creating a memorable experience for them.
Eliminate wait time
The key to getting the right table turn rate is about keeping your customers at their tables long enough to enjoy their food, as well as short enough to ensure that new customers are not waiting too long to be seated. Waitrr has hit the right spot with ordering and payment solutions to guarantee this. These features will allow your customers to save the time they would normally spend on placing orders and waiting for the check - instead dedicating their time to relish the food and atmosphere around them, further creating a satisfying experience!
