What is the most important aspect of the guest experience nowadays?
“Elevating the core experience is critical. Take good food, for example. I’m a big advocate of you restaurant NOT trying to beat food costs down because that’s the core of their services. If you spend 30 on food costs, you should not try to save money. You should go after a better quality of product, because that is the core of your services.“
What does proactive customer retention look like?
“You need to be going after all of your customers. At least, that’s what my world looks like. I know every single customer that comes into the business, regardless of whether they’re a loyalty member or not, and I know who they are. So I can personalize the experience to that individual.“
