“Cutting corners” without jeopardizing quality or customer loyalty  

Today’s restaurant operators are often faced with tough questions, such as, “How do I best economize to remain profitable?” While it’s important to cut costs where necessary to improve margins, it shouldn’t come at the expense of two things in particular — food quality and your customers. That’s why Alive & Kickin’ Pizza Crust put together a handy tip sheet, 12 Secrets to “Cutting Corners” Without Jeopardizing Quality or Customer Loyalty, that walks you through six low-risk cost cuts to consider and six high-risk cost cuts to avoid at your restaurant. Check it out and make the right decisions for your operation!
