Restaurant revenue, or sales, describes the total amount of money your operation generates during any given period of time. Most restaurants have multiple revenue centers, including food, beverage, merchandise, gift cards, third-party delivery, online ordering, and more. Consequently, revenue can fluctuate tremendously dependent upon various extraneous factors such as seasonality, weather, holidays, etc. Because of this, most operators are continuously looking for new strategies to grow their restaurant revenue.

While creative marketing strategies and honing in on profitable menu items may support growth, there are outside-of-the-box tactics that can help facilitate a steady increase in restaurant revenue. Strategic partnerships aren’t typically thought of as revenue generators. However, they create scale and provide expertise in areas beyond an operator’s bandwidth or knowledgeable scope in most cases. While RASI provides unmatched financial management within accounting and payroll, we’ve created strategic programs with premium industry leaders to offer a full-circle approach for restaurants to increase their revenues through our unique network of partners.

#1. Restaurant Payroll Compliance

Above all, payroll is one of the most critical aspects of any business. Moreover, properly paying your team creates trust and longevity of employment. There’s security in knowing that proper rate of pay, overtime, meal, shift, and break compliance are accurately tracked and reported!

#2. Restaurant Capital Financing

Additionally, financing helps businesses manage cash flow, purchase new assets and inventory, and make improvements to increase revenue. Unfortunately, large banks decline ~75% of small business applicants, so qualifying for a bank loan can be difficult, and it can take months to secure a loan. This partnership can help you secure capital within 2–3 days. From term and merchant cash advance loans to SBA and equipment loans, Adesso will readily assist you in receiving that financing.


#3. Website Marketing
