your restaurant management system has such a capability, you can not only get an in-depth view of current performance, but compare that performance against historical patterns. You can also assess how individual locations match up against each other in terms of sales, labor usage, and inventory consumption. This, in turn, will allow you to make informed decisions which, because they are based on facts, support growth rather than potentially impede it.
For example, if a comparison shows that a particular entrée is selling poorly at only one location, you can remove it from the menu at that location alone or make different changes without affecting other units. If an enterprise view of labor data shows usage discrepancies among stores with similar attributes (e.g., an identical traffic pattern), adjustments can.
