The Broad Strokes
Do you have the resources you need to open up your venue? Anyone who has ever opened any type of venue or business, knows how incredibly stressful, terrifying, amazing, rewarding, intense, inspiring, and nerve racking of an experience it can be – sometimes all at the same time. Patience, organization, and having the resources to get you through the madness, will help you see the forest through the trees.
The Basics to Consider
Have your menu items been tested? Have you had mock services? Are your menus fully flushed out and ready for guest use? Are you having a friends and family night, grand opening, or both? How have you marketed your opening? Is your point-of-sale system fully set up, tested, and all staff trained on it? Is your staff knowledgeable about your menu? Do you have enough product to get you through the opening (including not just food and beverages, but also, plates, napkins, silverware, etc.)? Do you have par values and ordering guidelines?
