One of the hardest things for restaurant owners to do is to serve more customers every day while still giving them a great meal and not making them leave too quickly. The logic is simple: if you serve more customers and turn tables over faster, you’ll make more money. Also, this helps everyone, not just people who own restaurants. Since happy customers leave bigger tips, servers should also try to get people to move from table to table more quickly. Everyone wins in the end.

In the next few paragraphs, I’ll talk about 13 ways to get more people to eat at your restaurant. Each of them will show you how to serve more people faster and make the most of your staff’s skills while keeping everyone happy, from waiters to regular customers.

How to Figure Out How Many Times a Table Is Turned Over in Your Restaurant

Before you can learn how to increase the table turnover rate, you need to know what it is and how to figure it out. First, decide what you want to measure, like dinner, lunch, or a certain day. The table turnover rate shows how busy the restaurant is at certain times.

Let’s say you want to know how often dinner tables are moved. Next, write down how many people are at each table. To figure out the table turnover rate, divide the number of parties by the number of tables. The goal is to serve as many people as possible in the time you have without lowering the quality.

As you read this article, keep this in mind. If you own a high-end restaurant, instead of rushing customers to the next party, you should focus on making more money by raising the check at each table.

If dinner is served between 5 and 10 p.m., the average number of times a table is turned over in most restaurants is three. This means that each party will spend an hour and a half at the table on average. Yes, that does sound very good. Yes, but don’t forget that you can waste a lot of time in small amounts. If you only seat people in two groups, you could lose a third of your income.

How often do people switch seats?

You might think that seat and table changes happen at the same rate. But, as the name suggests, the algorithm for turning seats over is a little different. Divide the number of customers you serve by the number of seats in your restaurant to find the average seat turnover rate.

Depending on how many people are there and how many seats are at each table, the table turnover rate may be higher than the seat turnover rate. Even if you seat a lot of “parties,” if most of your tables only have four seats and a lot of couples come in, you won’t fill as many seats.

How fast do the cards change?

You may have also heard the term “table per turnaround time,” which is a more precise way of saying “table turnaround time.” This metric is used to figure out how long a group of people spends at a table, from the time they sit down to the time they get up. In this case, the turnaround time per table is the hour and a half I mentioned earlier.
