There has been a high demand of eating healthy food as it has been growing fast over the years. Business analysts have noted that there has been an increase in the number of salad restaurants that are being opened as the demand of people to eat healthy though eating of salads has been taking place over the decades. Business entrepreneurs that have ventured into the salad restaurants have several challenges that are faced with in the business planning process, as the salad restaurants owners are faced with same problems as the other restaurant owners but on a specific nature. When starting a salad restaurant, the owner needs to look at all groups of people and not dwell too much on the salad side of the restaurant. The restaurant owner needs to have a diversity in the menu as the restaurant needs to serve many people hence the owner may dwell so much in advertising the restaurant on meals that only concern salads. In order to satisfy the large group of consumers the menu needs to be of a variety of items that can be served with the salad including soups, sandwiches, wraps, paganini and other dishes.
Delivery the fresh suppliers and on time needs to be a priority as the restaurant owner need to ensure that the supplier has the best produce in the market to enhance the growth of the business. A clear and stable relationship between the restaurant owner needs to be well established in order to make the produce is deliver as soon as possible for the consumers to be served. Creation of different relationships with the suppliers is good as the business will not be on hold as the supplies are readily available from another supplier as the restaurant needs to serve the customers’ needs. Supply chain disruptions need to be on the minimal as the owner has the power to search and acquire the needed relationship between the restaurant owner and the suppliers as the supplies need to be on time and be fresh for good business image and for better quality salads served in the restaurant.
The proper image of the business needs to be seen as the health standards need to be high as expected in the restaurant. Reports from the farm reports have indicated that on the recent years there has been diseases that have been attacking the produce that has to be taken to the market and be consumed making it a more sensitive problem that concerns the restaurant owner as the produce needs to be properly handled. The proper guidelines need to be educate to the staff by the restaurant owner concerning the food safety issues that pertain to good food production.
