Outsourcing Restaurant Services

Is your staff constantly pulled away from their stations to handle busy work such as managing payroll or processing accounting? Are you managing more than one location and just don’t have the time to dedicate to certain areas of your operation? Outsourcing restaurant services can save you time and even identify potential savings you could be missing.

Here are some solutions for outsourcing restaurant services:

Waste and Recycling Negotiations

Is your operation struggling with increasing waste expenses? Is your staff spending too much time trying to find you savings and lower costs and less time focused on growing your operation and running a business?

Refuse Specialist (RS) take the time to analyze your current service levels, negotiate prices and drive down your waste and recycling vendor costs, provide monthly invoice audits that ensure your new lower prices stay low and manage your waste contracts, services, and equipment. Think of them as an extension of your staff. RS’s ROI is directly linked to how much money your operation saves. With no cost to enroll and no risk, simply split the savings negotiated on your behalf.

Payroll

Time is money and payroll can be complicated and very time-consuming. According to Heartland, 40% of small business owners who do their own payroll taxes receive an average penalty of $845 every year from the IRS.

Businesses can spend a large amount of time on payroll. It can even wreak havoc on your bottom line if improperly done. Did you know 1 in 3 employees have been penalized for payroll errors? With each state having its own set of rules and regulations that seem to constantly change, why not outsource your payroll so you don’t have to worry about the confusing and ever-changing tax codes and the potential penalties for not following the rules.

Get peace of mind when you outsource your payroll process to solutions like Heartland. They help operators navigate the complexities of payroll, allowing you and your staff to focus on serving your customers and growing your operation instead. Reduce expenses, stay compliant, avoid errors, and eliminate confusion with their flexible easy-to-use payroll solution.

Accounting

Organized bookkeeping is a critical element to the success of every operation – no matter the industry. Accurate and timely reporting allows for informed decision-making, enables anticipation of upcoming cash requirements, and provides actionable insights into your operation.

By outsourcing your accounting to a solution like Comprehensive Hospitality Solutions (CHS), you can do all the cooking while they do the booking. CHS updates your data daily, and keeps you informed through online access of your books, weekly flash reports, consistently updates your accounts payable and cash reporting along with comprehensive month end analytics.

Fixed Cost Reduction

Is your operation being overcharged for waste, utilities, property taxes, or even bank fees? With your busy schedule and running more than one location, would you even notice if you were? Do you or your staff have the time to audit every invoice coming and going? There are hidden savings opportunities that you could potentially be missing out on if you aren’t spending hours combing through every charge or purchase every month.

Unlike most consulting firms, SIB has no upfront fees. Even better? SIB works together with Dining Alliance without overlapping or interfering with any audits.

Credit Card Processing

What if we said there was a way to reduce your processing fees without having to switch processors, software or even banks? Merchant Cost Consulting (MCC) ensures you do not overpay for merchant services. Navigate the credit card industry no matter what type of operator you may be. MCC monitors your account monthly and identifies when fees have increased. If increases have occurred, MCC works on your behalf to issue the business a refund and quickly get your rates decreased back down. You never have to worry about overpaying again. If you want to save money without affecting your day-to-day operation and staff, outsource your credit card processing.
