Restaurant Management Checklist: Answer To All Operational Problems

Starting a restaurant business doesn’t ensure how successful it will be based on mere luck. Everything boils down to how consistent and efficient the restaurant is in providing customer satisfaction. Ineffective operations management causes almost 60% of restaurants to close down within the 1st year of opening. 

Whether you manage a single restaurant or several units, the multiple routine operations carried out need to have a system in place to take care of the day-to-day tasks and ensure that long-term operations function smoothly i.e Restaurant SOP

Restaurant management checklists are simple and are quite powerful in transforming how your restaurant operates. Restaurant checklists help your staff focus on operations more efficiently, ultimately allowing you to:

  • Drive compliance with internal standards
  • Streamline daily tasks and processes
  • Cut labor costs

Restaurant Management Checklist: Decoded

The restaurant management checklist can be divided into 6 parts based on the different operational aspects to be looked into on a daily basis:

1. Manager’s Duties Checklists: This includes manager duties during restaurant opening and closing, rush hour and shift changes. Some of the tasks included in the manager’s checklists are:

  • Manager’s Opening Checklist
  • Open the cash register and add the opening cash
  • Check inventory
  • Project the sales for the day
  • Check restrooms

  • Marinate the fish and meat
  • Keep the broth prepared
  • Cleaning Checklist
  • Clean all the stations and chopping area
  • Keep all extra food away

  • Opening Checklist
  • Ensure that the floor is clean and dry
  • Have all the tables clean with fresh table cloths and napkins
  • Place menu on every table
  • Shift Change Checklist
  • Inform important happening of the day to new servers coming in for the next shift

  • Bartender Checklist
  • Check total sales for the day
  • Record number of bottles taken from the stock
  • Damages to the bottles

Consistency and service quality can be easily maintained by automating routine operation checklists. In fact, Hartford Business has stated that maintaining checklists, especially for recurring tasks, is the most effective method to track operational efficiency. 

Having daily checklists for the different roles and departments ensure that your restaurant is efficient, up-to-date and organized. It also makes it easier for staff to plan their day and even train new employees by easily referring to the checklists assigned to them.
