Feng Shui Your Way to Increased Profits

Most franchises must find a way to operate in as little as space as possible, which can often lead to cramped kitchens and packed dining rooms. Both create chaos and unhappy employees and customers, which leads to turnover and a decrease in profits.

This session will show you how to reconfigure dining rooms and kitchens as well as how to choose equipment and partners to help you get the most out of your space.
