Last week Kathy Peterson, proprietor of Jenny’s Restaurant in
Kathy has been in the business for over a year and knows she needed to do more price checking. Also, she made a point that you needn’t over design your menu – making it difficult to change the prices. Her menu at Jenny’s was a piece of art. However, she had problems delving into the program to raise an entrée price. The difficulties sometimes make people a little leery of changing prices and in many cases we end up living with a cheaper entrée price thinking we will change it “the next time the menu is redone”. The last thing we need when under price changing pressure is more frustration from a computer program. I have always found myself changing prices just before the dinner shift begins and more often than not find little time for mistakes or fine tuning.
Kathy also wrote that she will be closing Jenny’s next week and is looking for someone to take over the business. Due to circumstances beyond her control she must move on to other ventures and is looking for a restaurateur to step in for her. Jenny’s is on the market.
