When the Coronavirus pandemic first hit, restaurants, as many others thought the closings would just last a few weeks. Then that spiraled. Veteran restaurateur, Cliff Bramble thought he could weather the storm.
First, hoping he could maintain some normalcy within local residences, he handed out thousands of pounds of rosemary dough to his local customers. Then, he created online ordering and curbside pickup of essential items like eggs, milk, and cleaning products.
Heroically, for the eight weeks of being closed, he paid his employees their full pay. Upon re-opening the restaurant, it was clear the large parties that took up 40% of his business had already moved out of the local business parks and started working from their homes.
With no sales and no help from the landlord, he closed his multi-million-dollar restaurant. Adapting to the change, Cliff set out to help others in the restaurant business. This is what inspired his book, The Business Side of Restaurants. Cliff says, "If future generations of restaurant professionals can learn faster and less expensively, it's great for them and the entire restaurant industry."
When Covid-19 forced the closing of Cliff Bramble's restaurant, he strategized and thought about how he could use his decades of restaurant experience to help others. The Business Side of Restaurants does just that. The book shows restaurant and business owners how to save money while operating their company.
