There Are No “Typical” Days in the Restaurant Business
Running a restaurant involves many twists and turns: staff turnover, broken equipment, slow moments, and mad rushes. The restaurant business is full of rapid change, and the restaurant owner must be able to perform many different tasks requiring a multitude of skills. A start-up operation requires that you do tasks, such as check the previous day’s receipts, prepare bank deposits, order products, do inventory, conduct operational checks, prepare food, build work schedules, greet customers, repair broken pieces of equipment, and more.
Very few fields require such a wide variety of skills and abilities as the restaurant business does. And the required skills change by the day, the hour, and even the minute. There is no schedule except for this: You’re always on the go in the restaurant business.
You can count on a few things, though. Long hours, sore feet, and intense rushes seem to go hand in hand with a booming restaurant business. The alternative of short days, sitting around, and no rushes could spell disaster. Depending on your hours of operation and restaurant concept, you could be in for your fair share of late nights, early mornings, long weekends, and missed family gatherings.
So what is “typical” in the restaurant business? There is no typical.
