Today was the polar opposite of yesterday’s high school lunch.
7 high school kids instead of 60, and it was Zen.
And my theory proved true (at least for today). We had less transactions, more $$$ sales.
2, 3, and 4-top tables of adults with a higher average ticket, and a much calmer atmosphere to dine in.
Even taking the delivery sales out of the equation (two large amounts), we still had more dollar volume and less people served.
I had some really great suggestions on my previous two posts; allowing only a certain number of HS students in at one time, the other to draft a “Dear HS Student” letter which I could leave on the front counter for them to read while waiting for their drink.
I’m going to wait it out a bit, see what transpires.
