Managing a restaurant successfully is a challenge due to its complexity. The successful management of a restaurant involves more than offering a balanced menu designed to generate revenue. A number of factors play a role in the management of a restaurant: the ability to form a relationship with clients, prospecting for business in digital media, the ability to effectively respond to demand, forming relationships based on trust and being able to deal with suppliers are factors that play a role in the management of a restaurant.
