    As a restaurant owner or manager, when was the last time you took some time off from your restaurant? How long was it? 



    Have you ever experienced being fully unplugged and recharged-as in not checking labor, not getting those phone calls, and not being asked for different stuff in your restaurant? 



    The way we measure our effectiveness as restaurant leaders is by assessing how our team performs in our absence. 



    If you need to be at the restaurant all the time, and everything seems to be working smoothly, there's nothing much to brag about it. Just like parenting, if you need to be there all the time for your children to behave well because they become the opposite when you're not around - that is only a reflection of how you're doing as parents. 



    In today's show, I'm going to share with you the restaurant owner's guide to freedom - that it's okay to take some time off and be fully disconnected from your restaurant responsibilities and obligations.

    How obsessed are you when it comes to portion control in your restaurant?



    Welcome to another episode of Making Dough Show! Today, we're answering a query from one of our supporters, Jessica. She's a manager at a pizzeria, and she's asking what to do with employees who can't follow portion control in recipes? 



    As a restaurant owner, I have done a lot of training for our employees. I haven't worked at the restaurant for a long time, but every now and then, I go to the operations and ask questions. 



    I'd like you to focus on: 



    - Assessing your employees' awareness and understanding of restaurant portion controls 

    - Explaining the connection between portion control and the team

    - Making it easy for them to remember portion control

    - Coming up with techniques to make work faster

    - Coaching and Kudo-ing the team

    - Letting your employees do the Math to make them aware of the impact of restaurant portion controls
