Restaurant Tip of the Day
Find your breakeven point to avoid breaking the bank.
Do you know your breakeven point? I bet your accountant does. And you should, too. Breakeven analysis is used to determine exactly that: how much in sales the restaurant must generate to break even. Knowing your breakeven point doesn’t tell you when you’ll make money or be profitable, but it can tell you if you can afford that new marketing idea, payments on a new range, or to hire that additional server. Through examination of your fixed and variable expenses, you can see the impact of changes in these expenses.
