Waiting Line Stress

The restaurant business is one of the hardest to manage. There are a number of responsibilities for owners and managers to handle, in order to get smooth operating processes. However, there still be issues and challenges related to service, ordering, waiting, and payment procedures. Especially during rush hours, it is way harder to organize all the required operations. This makes a cause for long and unwanted queues that make many customers leave, bringing a huge decrease in sales. Overall long waiting times have a negative impact on the restaurant business.

Recent studies show that restaurants have average waitlists of 6.6 hours per week, which is quite a big amount of time considering the overall operation hours of regular fast food or casual restaurants. Parties visiting restaurants at least spend half an hour in lines to get seats during rush hours. Survey results have shown that almost 93 percent of restaurants have at least some wait-time periods, and 30 percent of the restaurants report that waits are usually getting longer. Though this is a big and visible problem that causes management and sales issues, most of the restaurants have not yet found ways to effectively engage customers during the valuable time spent waiting in their establishments. When thinking of resolving this issue two possible solutions come into a mind. First is to involve customers into some kind of pleasant activity that will make them spend the wait time with a higher interest and the second is to integrate a smart waitlist system into restaurant waitlists and reservation processes to allow guests to register into waitlists and reserve tables before visiting the restaurant. These ideas make some restaurants change their waitlists’ strategy. The studies show that the second option is more attractive and works better. Thus, many restaurants start to use automated management systems that allow to organize and administrate the whole process of restaurant operation in a single platform which also corrects and improves waiting lines and time.
