The food industry, like the pub trade, has seen a significant decline in the number of people eating out in recent years.
More and more people are bringing their own lunch to work in order to save money, instead of going to the local pub or restaurant.
As a result pubs and restaurants need to adapt by selling food with bigger portions, for the same price than they would have in the past.
They also face stiff competition from local corner stores/ Deli counters with their daily lunch special offers.
This is hitting their overall margins hard, making portion control even more important than ever before.
By knowing exactly what your margins are you can take the first to helping your business survive and grow, securing both your future and that of your staff.

Most retail store owners will tell you that things are difficult and getting worse and service stations are no exception. Slow trading conditions continue to bring loss of revenue, stock shrinkage and increased instances of theft
