Fatal Error No. 2

Often restaurant operators make two fatal errors when it comes to the operation of their business. The second error is restaurant operators run their business by what the daily cash balance is in their bank account. IMPORTANT: Not reconciling the bank account on a daily basis, and not planning for the known capital or planned expenses, will kill your business. You must maintain a balance between cash availability and cash needed. To do this, you must have a well-planned cash flow budget. Curious about the first error? See Fatal Error No. 1.
