How AI can help your restaurants increase sales and profit
Automated and Personalized Marketing
AI is an extremely effective tool to use in order to personalize your marketing. The more data is gathered about every individual customer, the more powerful and effective an AI engine can be in identifying and reaching out to your customers with highly targeted messages that will result in increased sales.
Labor and Food Cost Savings
AI can also be a very powerful cost savings engine, for example, AI can replace a human taking phone orders and free your staff to focus on more important tasks. This will lead to a very substantial labor savings.
AI can also analyze your spendings and review your food cost and alert you or even automatically order raw ingredients from the vendor with most effective cost or promotions
Moral of the story
The reason that Artificial Intelligence is so powerful is because it thinks for itself and it will continuously learn and improve. It is important to understand the difference between AI and Automation or Workflow Automation. Workflow automation is not intelligent, it is human controlled, if this happens, then do this. AI is so powerful because it will observe what is happening, why it is happening and find correlations that would otherwise not be spotted. For example, an AI system can learn to compare sales vs expenses and make a recommendation to close at 8pm at a specific location on Monday and Tuesdays because the cost of labor, utilities and food cost is substantially higher than the sales or profits that are generated.
