Using the 80-20 Rule to Cut Costs and Improve Restaurant Management

Ken Burgin

The 80/20 Rule is simple – it says that a relatively small number of causes (about 20%) is responsible for a great number of effects (roughly 80%). This is good news – if you find out what the 20% are and work on them, you can have a significant impact on sales improvement, cost reduction and improved restaurant management. This often means 80% of your sales come from 20% of your customers (particular individuals, or a type of customer), so looking after them should be a priority.
