I received this article from one of the internet sites that I follow. The website is RestaurantNews.com. The article is “The Biggest Reasons Restaurants Lose Customers”. You may have been successful before with with loads of customers flocking to your restaurant. Still that was before, now there might be a slowdown in revenue. Your customers might be dining somewhere else. That is why you have to pay attention to the social media. See what people is saying about you. Occasionally the customer might exagerate. But when there is too many of the same complains, there might be some truth in it.
