It is important to decide the service style when starting a restaurant business. The layout, menu, inventory, food prices and décor of the restaurant are determined based on service style planned. The service style also depends on target market and location.
Let’s check out the Service style:
- Fast Food
A fast-food provides the quickest service and food at the cheapest prices. The layout of most fast-food restaurants is simple. Fast-food restaurants are often franchises of a brand with many locations. Fast-food restaurants often include a place to dine, a drive-through or walk-up windows for customers to order and pick up food. Fast-food restaurants often serve burgers, chicken, sub sandwiches, Mexican fare or ice cream.
- Fast Casual – These restaurants are similar to fast-food restaurants, but serve healthier or of higher quality food. Many fast-casual restaurants serve a specialized type of food, such as Mexican, Chinese or fresh-baked fare. While a fast-food restaurant may serve fried chicken meals, a fast-casual place may serve roasted chicken, vegetables and baked bread.
- Fine Dining – These restaurants usually has the most elaborate menus and expensive prices. Atmosphere of elegance and grace is created. Reservations to dine is required. Fine-dining restaurants employ experienced chefs. Some restaurants offer five-course meals and an expensive and expansive wine list.
- Casual Dining – Casual-dining restaurants offer food similar to fast-casual establishments but with a table-service dining atmosphere. Most restaurants provide a family-friendly environment. These restaurants may serve a variety of pastas, chicken dishes and simple seafood dishes. Some have highly specialized menus, but others serve a broad range of cuisine.
