Running a restaurant or bar is a lot more than just cooking the right food and mixing up the right drinks. Restaurant owners and managers should be able to effectively market their offerings to attract customers, manage employees, and should have an in-depth business understanding.

Being business savvy is critical to be successful within the restaurant industry, but with so much going on it can be hard to keep up. Luckily, there are tools to help no matter if you are a brand new business owner or a seasoned CEO.
