full service or counter service Thu, 08/8/13 7:32 PM (permalink)
I currently have a full service mexican restaurant but have been tossing the idea of changing my service structure.  Dinners are great but lunch has been very slow.  I feel that customers want a faster lunch because of time constraints.  My idea was changing lunch to counter service and keeping dinner at full service.  This way I can accommodate the lunch crowd as well.  I will have a hostess all day directing customers so that there wont be any confusion.  
My question is how many people prefer a counter service lunch rather than a full service lunch?

      Are you using SOCIAL MEDIA?
      Do a Limited item Lunch menu and put it on Facebook, Twitter etc.
      Rotate several items on the menu but only do things you can do quickly. Publish the Daily Specials on Social Media.
      If you can do it, give an "In & Out in 30 Minutes' Guarantee.
