Hi everyone, I have started a new business 3 weeks ago. It's a cafe and I am very happy about how it is going. Now, I am stuck in the kitchen and I feel like I am not doing the most to attract new customers, market the cafe and innovate/find new business sources. I am thinking of delegating the kitchen operations to a chef, which will suck up to $900 of my revenue per week. Considering how I am going it looks like I can "afford" it, but I am worried that this would be too risky, a waste of money, and my effort to create new marketing activities, make the cafe more appealing and bring more customers in won't be rewarded or it won't work. Also, I think we can improve customer service and I would like to be the one in charge of the front of the house to make sure that both food and service are up to standards, it means that I am spending more for labour in the kitchen but I am saving some on FOH. What do you guys think? Is it too early to step out the kitchen? How would this be perceived by customers? Is it worth to take the risk or maybe wait a little bit? Anyone with cafe experience? Thank you everyone!
