Restaurants, especially new ones, often go through seasons of prosper and seasons of cash drought. Poor cash flow can come from a number of different factors in your restaurant. Labor costs, payroll, inventory, and processes are all important factors to evaluate in your business. The trick to improve restaurant cash flow is to first identify your problem areas so you can find solutions to fix them.
If you are using disparate systems for restaurant management, look into integrating your restaurant technology so it can share data. Review your processes and see if there are ways to streamline your business and make it run more efficiently.
