Strewn coffee cups and plates scattered everywhere; bins, beer kegs and chipping paint… Just some of the things that you might see when you walk into a venue to eat in any town in any place.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that first impressions count, but think of this more like a gentle reminder that they absolutely do and always will. When was the last time that you walked into your business and saw it as a customer does?
Soy, almond, coconut, lactose free, rice, hemp, cashew are some, but not all the different types of alternative milk varieties that can commonly be found in cafés and restaurants around the country nowadays, as the rise of food allergies and individual preferences change amongst diners.
As annoying as it is to baristas and business owners, it’s a sign of the times and that customers are now savvier than ever about what they fuel their bodies with.
If you run your own business you will know the constant pressures of business ownership life; it’s busy, you wear multiple hats on a daily basis, and there are changing deadlines and competing priorities that suck up your time.
Most of the time you never get to the bottom of the to-do list, and often we head towards scheduled days off having to catch up on all the things we haven’t achieved during the working week when really, we should be enjoying some downtime.
