Restaurant Myths and Facts
Myth or fact?
Family-run businesses should have an organizational chart.
In a family-owned restaurant there are official roles and job duties. But oftentimes there are also unofficial roles that people take on because the job wouldn’t get done otherwise. But these roles go unrecognized and lead to feelings of resentment. Or things fall through the cracks because someone isn’t officially assigned to the role and associated duties. Use an organizational chart to clearly outline who is responsible for what. Assign them even if there are only two of you and 12 different jobs that need to be done.
