When to Hire a Restaurant Consultant

I definitely have some advice on when to hire a restaurant consultant and what a restaurant consultant can do for your restaurant. I cover it all in the video below, or you can read the summary below the video.  If you’ve ever wondered if it is the right time to hire a restaurant consultant, consider this advice.

The simple answer on whether you should or when to hire a restaurant consultant is when you have the money, time and if you want to buy speed.

When you hire a restaurant consultant, it should be after you’ve exhausted every effort to do it yourself. Maybe you’ve seen me speak or watched some of my other videos that tell you all the systems you need to have in your business, and you’ve tried to do it yourself, but you’ve found you’re just not getting results fast enough. It could be your leadership style, a lack of management or lack of management’s buy-in, but you’re just not getting things done quickly enough.

That’s when you bring in a consultant.

The goal of a restaurant consultant is for them to jumpstart systems in your business. Although we do offer restaurant consultant services, I have to tell you, I’d much rather you only spend a few hundreds dollars per month on a coach instead of thousands on a consultant. Watch this video to learn why and what a restaurant coach does that’s different than a restaurant consultant.

But, back to when to hire a restaurant consultant, when you want it done right now, and you want to be able to keep doing it later, that’s a great time for a restaurant consulting experience.

In choosing which restaurant consultant to hire, Make sure they:

  • Have the experience you need
  • Have the knowledge of the systems you need to have in place
  • Know what success is for you
  • Will teach you how to do the work so you can keep it going whey they leave
