Scheduling staff for your restaurant requires the ability to achieve a balance between meeting the needs of your customers and the needs of your employees every day. Your restaurant's employee scheduling management software must be a powerful management tool designed to streamline the process and free up your restaurant's managers and supervisors to spend less time scheduling and more time attending to the business of running a restaurant.
People everywhere love to go to restaurants, whether it's for fast food, pizza, or a sizzling steak dinner. Restaurants compete for customers every day, and adequate staff scheduling is critical to providing the kind of quality customer service that brings people to your establishment and keeps them coming back. ShiftPlanning's scheduling software provides the customizable platform you need to match forecasted dining room numbers with adequate serving and kitchen staff.
Depending on the size, many restaurants operate with various management levels. The average restaurant staff is comprised of the owner, manager, franchise/branch managers (where applicable,) marketing manager, sales, online order and delivery agents, kitchen, wait staff and customer support specialists.
Meeting the unique restaurant scheduling management demands of any restaurant can be daunting. Restaurant scheduling managers need to plan for every single shift to be covered by a host of staff of varying skill levels and job descriptions.
Staff supervisors must assign team members to various shifts in different areas of responsibility: seating clientele, taking and delivering the order, preparing the order, keeping the kitchen clean, clearing tables, and more. A well-run dining room can require the skills of dozens of staff at once, and scheduling them all efficiently is perhaps one of the biggest challenges faced by supervisors and managers.
