All-you-can-eat! Let the customer get more for what they pay for when buying a Buffet-Style Restaurant for Sale. These restaurants often do not depend on a high number of employees, as customers are usually serving themselves their own food. This is why it reduces the number of staff members in the restaurant. In some cases, the buffet also allows you fully immerse yourself in the experience of cooking your own food. Customers usually also look the other way when it comes to complaining, as many buffets offer various dishes which can replace the one that they do not like.
Buffet Style Restaurants have the ability to monitor weekly waste amounts and track exactly how much customers are eating. Meaning, this can give one the advantage to be able to monitor food costs by adjusting the menu based on popular items. Buffet Style Restaurants also have the capability to alter how dishes are served to minimize waste at the end of each business day. What many buffet owners do is, estimate each pan to be at least 5% and as much as 25% waste. One of their useful techniques is the tools they give each customer. For example, you'll never see full-sized dinner plates because they purposely use smaller dishes to cut down on the amount of food you serve yourself with each trip you make.
There are many buffet types like:
- Chinese Buffets
- Indian Buffets
- American Buffets
- Pizza Buffets
- Sushi Buffets
There are even extremely successful casual buffet chains like Golden Corral, which has locations all over the U.S. Some restaurants, such as Olive Garden, serve unlimited breadsticks, soup, and salad buffet-style but serve the rest of their dishes using waitstaff. Hotels even implement buffet-style continental breakfasts to simplify their overhead.
If you think about it, the buffet model is the antithesis of the fine-dining model. Where one concept focuses completely on the highest quality food and special-tailored individual portions, the other focuses on serving a high volume of cheap but satisfying food that is easy to prepare and caters to the masses.
Lastly, buffets almost always close earlier than fine dining or other types of establishments because they rarely serve alcohol and begin closing up sooner as there is less waitstaff who need to be dealt with at the end of the night.
Regardless of whatever kind of Buffet Style Restaurant you are looking to open, The Restaurant Brokers have a great selection of lucrative buffets with tons of potential, so give us a call today!
