Turning a Slow Business Day into an Opportunity to Look Your Best

I recently went to eat at a local sub shop with my fiancé.

We live in a college town and since school is out for the summer, it was expectantly empty inside––just one other person had the same idea and he was grabbing his sub to go.

As we ordered our meals, I noticed something was off.

Even though the entire shop was empty, it looked like a bus full of people had just had their fill.

First, the chips were extremely low and the cookies were completely out. When I tried to fill up my soda cup, I had to reach way back in order to get one of the last few lids in stock. When we finally tried to sit down to eat, there wasn’t a single clean table in the entire restaurant.

This raises the stakes for customer satisfaction across the board, forcing stores, restaurants and other businesses to keep a closer eye on every part of the experience, including the tiny details that tend to go unnoticed until problems happen.
