Restaurant Marketing Tips – Can You Get Out of What You Got Into?

Recently I have been working with a client, who, having built an amazingly successful restaurant, is now at the end of the business’ lifecycle and he is ready to move on to another project. And you know what? He has now found himself in quite a complicated situation. Why? Because he did not have the end in sight when he was starting his restaurant. Now he feels trapped, and just when he is ready to move on to bigger and better things he is bogged down in what needs to be done to remove himself from his current establishment.

Now, while this might be very far from where you are, don’t be fooled. This day will come for you too, and you want to be prepared. Why think about it now you ask? Because the decisions that you take now will effect the ability to get out of your current business easily and with the results that you desire. After all, who wants to spend years building a business, only to find that it can’t be sold or passed on to family because it was never set up that way in the first place?

Take some time to think about your exist strategy. How do you want the end to look? Will you sell your restaurant and start a new restaurant? Will you begin a franchise? Get a manager? Pass it on to your children? Be a silent partner? These are essential questions to ask NOW, so that you can take the right decisions along the way to allow you to fulfill your objectives.
