How to Calculate Real Revenue Growth Rates for Restaurants

Posted by Leslie

If you are only examining your traditional same-store sales metrics today, you are not getting an accurate picture of the market realities or your restaurant's real performance. During an inflationary period, sales increases can look good but can also be misleading, or worse, lull you into a false sense of security. To see performance clearly during times like these, you need to recalculate your sales growth to eliminate the beneficial effects of inflation.

Mirus CEO, Dave Bennett, will be presenting his thoughts on managing restaurants during a high inflationary period at the Restaurant Finance and Development Conference. Learn how to calculate real revenue growth rates for restaurants and download Dave's expanded presentation slides and our free Real Restaurant Revenue Growth Calculation Methods PDF

Twin-Peaks-Logo-USE-NOW

Twin Peaks is a sports bar with a lodge-like feel. Each of the 90 plus locations is covered in wall-to-wall TVs so you can catch every game, match or fight. They serve 29º draft beer in frosted mugs and scratch-made food. But the real reason many people visit Twin Peaks- is the Twin Peaks Girls (TPGs).

I had the opportunity to chat with Twin Peaks Senior Manager of Operations Analysis, Lizzy Wright,  to talk about how Mirus helps them increase sales through promo and event tracking.
