Approachable and well-trained baristas and staff members are essential in creating a welcoming and professional atmosphere. Leading by example is one of the fundamental ways to ensure you create happy and healthy environments that your staff want to be a part of.
Setting the tone each day by having pride in your business can go a long way in creating a team atmosphere where people aren’t afraid to ask questions and do the best job they can do.
Creating a Good Rapport with Customers
An enjoyable part of the day is socialising with customers. Creating a positive atmosphere amongst your staff will spread to the customers, who will be delighted by your team's welcoming environment and professionalism.
Keeping on top of orders and ensuring consistency can go a long way when making sure customers feel cared for and prioritised.
As the working day ends, ensuring that all equipment is correctly cleaned and any hygiene requirements are met is usually at the top of the agenda for our franchise owners.
Anything that will help you stay organised the next day should be done at the end of the day to make sure you’re always ahead.
Saying thank you to your staff members for their hard work is a must too!
