What does our restaurant training and assessment entail?

Exceptional customer service is a direct result of restaurant training and the ability to consistently deliver those ‘moments of magic’ where the ordinary become extraordinary and amazement is achieved. Exceptional guest service is simply defined as an ‘a positive or noticeably different’ guest experience. 

 

Our training is designed to equip your restaurant service team for the "WOW" factor all the time! We cover all areas of the guest journey, from the time they make a telephonic reservation, to the welcoming, seating, food & beverage service, to the farewell. 

 

Our restaurant training & assessment entails the following:

  • Mystery shopper - This covers telephonic reservation, welcoming, seating, restaurant cleanliness, overall staff presentation, menu knowledge, beverage knowledge, server skills and many other aspects that are meaningful to the guest journey. 
  • Report - We then report on our findings and agree on the training program for your team.
  • Training schedule - Our training schedules vary from one establishment to the other. 
  • Post training feedback 
  • Post training support of follow up - It is vital that the training programme should be able to show a significant return on investment, whether it be increased performance, profitability, customer satisfaction or improved efficiency. We will help you implement strategies to monitor progress, identify shortfalls and plan a staff training road map. Once-off training does not yield the best results, hence we recommend 6-12 months on-going support and follow up training to keep your team in great shape.
