1. Training

  Sample video    Sample employee handbook

In a recent Restaurant Business survey, restaurateurs cited training and retaining staff as their biggest challenge. A well-trained workforce lowers turnover, heightens customer satisfaction, and increases profitability. That’s why we not only train your people to be great at their jobs, we also show them how to be ambassadors for your restaurant.

  • Service That Sells: We call our training Service That Sells! We think you’ll call it the best marketing tool you’ve ever had. Service That Sells! goes far beyond the employee handbook. We make sure every member of your staff receives expert instruction in all relevant aspects of restaurant operations.

  • Customized training: Our training programs are customized for your business and will help your staff in their interactions with customers, ensure they are knowledgeable about your menu, and thoroughly familiarize them with any technology (such as POS) that they have to use.

  • Computer-aided instruction: In addition to custom training manuals and handbooks, we offer online instruction, refresher courses, and competency testing to ensure your training goals are continuously met.

2. PCI security

When it comes to securing guest experiences, the most important concern is your POS system. Your restaurant needs the best security protocols to avoid costly and potentially devastating consequences.

  • Use modern, secure technology: Your hardware should be tamper-proof to stop anyone from physically accessing your system. Your software should also be up-to-date and be equipped to fight off cyber threats.

  • Adhere to PCI compliance standards: PCI standards call for merchants that accept, process, store, and/or transmit credit card information do so in a secure environment.

  • What’s on your PLATE? PLATE is our program that helps restaurant owners deal with cybersecurity:
  • Perceive threats to your system.
  • Limit risk of an attack.
  • Attribute the root of the problem accurately.
  • Take action and respond to an attack immediately.
  • Evolve from the incident and take appropriate action.

3. Custom website

  Sample website

Custom designed for your restaurant, your site will feature beautiful menus, photo galleries, social media integration, and strikingly beautiful design.

  • Powerful marketing: Your website is your face to your customers. It should be an enriching and interactive experience that showcases your restaurant’s personality and brand.

  • Social media integration: Instead of just giving your customers links to “jump” to your social media sites, your site will be integrated with social media to directly display content and updates, ensuring your brand stays current and consistent.

  • Custom design: Of course you could design a website using a template, but do you really want your website to look like every other restaurant’s website? Effective, compelling, and unique design is standard with your EntréeNet toolbox.

4. Mobile friendly

Your EntréeNet site will look and work perfectly on all mobile devices. The design, functionality and experience will be optimized regardless of whether the site is viewed on a laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

  • Every-device technology: Your EntréeNet website will scale to every size device. That means your site is guaranteed to look great, load quickly, and function the same way on any computer, smartphone, or tablet.

  • Local search optimization: One out of every three mobile searches are local. After looking up a local business on their smartphones, more than 60% of users called the business and more than half of those people actually walked through the door. That’s why we employ local search optimization techniques to make it easy for local customers to find your restaurant.

  • Mobile design: According to a recent survey, 80% of consumers say it’s important to see a menu before dining and 70% of those said the menus should be readable on a mobile screen. Almost two-thirds of the respondents said they won’t visit a restaurant if the menu can’t be read on a mobile device.

5. Social media

  Sample social media pages

EntréeNet makes sure your social media profiles look great and are easy to find. You’ll be amazed how much social media engagement helps your restaurant!

  • Social media makeover: You need an active and engaged audience of current and potential customers to succeed with social media. We will optimize your social media profiles to look great and engaging. We will cross-promote your restaurant across multiple social media sites to maximize your online exposure.

  • Social media integration: Instead of just giving your customers links to “jump” to your social media page, your site will be integrated with social media to directly display content and updates, ensuring your brand stays current and consistent. This is how social media is supposed to be done.

  • Positive reviews: Review sites like Yelp are increasingly important to driving business. EntréeNet is here to help with 24/7 monitoring of the most important review and social media sites. We will either alert you or prepare a quick response to all customer reviews and messages, depending on which option you prefer.
