Pret a Manger

 “There are three core values that have always remained true to the brand and they all stem around passion. First and foremost, we are passionate about food and keeping it fresh and interesting. This is our core product and we work hard to produce the best we can. It would be easier to get tubs of guacamole instead of cutting fresh avocados in each kitchen in each shop but we stick to quality and taste.”
The second Pret passion is their staff, all 2,200 of them spread across 116 stores (25 outside London) in the UK. There are also several branches in New York as well as a Hong Kong store. Rolfe points out that in business all staff should be appreciated and that they play a huge role in the success of the brand. “We are passionate about people and our staff. They are extremely important and we make sure they have the right opportunities and rewards, that they are paid correctly and that they have fun working for us. We have and will always have a great culture and energy.”
Staff are also carefully screened before they join the company. Rolfe believes that sharing the company’s values is essential to wanting to work for Pret. “There is a rigorous assessment for each potential employee. We make them work in a shop for a few days, they have several interviews and, in each case, we try to get to know them as individuals.”
The third and final part of Pret’s sandwich success story is to be passionate and proud of the business and what they have achieved. Rolfe comments: “We make and have made mistakes but we remain proud of what we do and we try not to get distracted by a corporate approach.”

“Originally, when we invested, Pret was very much a lunch business,” said William Jackson, its chairman and managing partner at Bridgepoint, which now owns a 66% stake in the chain. “We’ve built it from breakfast through to the afternoon, and now it’s moving towards the evenings.”
Pret offers the same basic products in all its markets but adapts its service style and menu to suit local tastes. In the U.S., coffee is largely self-serve and customers get a choice of salad dressing. In Britain, baristas make the coffee, and salads are paired with a single dressing.
“Americans have always felt that they have the right to have it their way,” said Mr. Schlee. “They have a long and deeply ingrained habit of choosing what they want.”

In Hong Kong, the company offers more hot food and single sandwiches so people can mix and match, while in Paris it offers a wider array of desserts.
Pret’s growth slowed during the recession as customers ate out less. In response, it started offering coffee in the U.K. for 99 pence, which helped bring customers back.




"Our two noodle lunches, both Vegetarian and Prawn, are made with fresh egg noodles, not the cheaper dried variety. The noodles are dressed in our Oriental sauce, bursting with ginger, sesame and coriander." 

Visit a few of their stores and you start to see some of the systems in operation. Basic systems for how the stores will look. What materials do we use to help keep them clean and make them easy to maintain? How to layout the store to make it easy for people to select their food, pay for it and take it away? How should our sandwiches be displayed and what type of cups are we going to use? 

These things don't just happen by accident. And they don't just happen occasionally. They happen consistently. Time and time again. The result is that the customers know exactly what to expect. Fast and friendly service, superb food, great environment and easy to purchase. 

The assistant took tremendous care with each item and described it to the customer as he rang it in. When he got to one of the sandwiches, he stopped. "Salmon and cucumber," he said, "I'll change that one for you." 

The assistant went on to explain. "This sandwich is not quite full with salmon and we like to see our sandwiches bursting with fresh salmon. I'll find you another sandwich."

Pret a Manger has grown to an annual £450 million revenue company on a simple business offering: fresh, sustainably sourced, tasty, additives-free food — delivered fast.
Its message is simple and the words “organic” and “natural” are used repeatedly in its messaging throughout an experience at a Pret cafe.
What stands out is that Pret is generating at least twice as much revenue per store as any of its rivals. This may be because of Pret’s greater food offerings compared to its rival coffee chains and also the speed of Pret’s delivery. Compared to Starbucks, where customers in the US can wait up to 10 minutes for a coffee, Pret can field up to 10 staff at the till in peak times, aiming to serve customers within 60-90 seconds of them getting in line.
Ever since, despite the credit crunch and subsequent downturn, it has been fast uphill for Pret. Sales have continued to rise around 15% year on year, growth that has fuelled an ambitious expansion strategy. Pret now operates more than 360 outlets, in locations far beyond its London heartlands.
But it’s inside the stores that Pret has cultivated its most distinctive identity. There’s the quirky atmosphere – a mix of the upbeat and the helpful. There are the cheerful staff at the tills, baristas shouting out the orders for coffee, the drinks being relayed to the counter with all the theatre of a rugby ball emerging from a scrum. Pret’s goal is to serve you within 60 seconds – with warm wishes in your ear – so with a tap of your card, you’re on your way.
Back in 2013, Pret’s CEO, Clive Schlee, made headlines when he revealed that on store visits: “The first thing I look at is whether the staff are touching each other. Are they smiling, reacting to each other, happy, engaged? I can almost predict sales on body language alone.”

Critics leapt on this as evidence that Pret was peddling an inauthentic “have a nice day” culture, the cheerfulness prised out of a workforce worried they were being spied upon.

It’s a charge that I put to Wareham. She denies this is the case at Pret. “If you tell people what to say it will come across as false. We don’t do any of that. I think a lot of companies will talk about customer service. But we start before that. We create the happy team so that everything else flows.” She points out that the staff retention rate is improving. In the last six years their annual employee turnover has dipped from 90% to 60%, which she claims is “good for this industry”.

So how does Pret attempt to create a happy workforce? It starts with its recruitment strategies. A staff member is not hired on the strength of a traditional CV but on whether they conform to the three core Pret behaviours: passion, clear talking and team working. “In the recruiting centres they are not asking about have you made sandwiches before, can you make coffee, they are asking questions to see if people have these qualities,” Wareham says.
There’s a career path for those wanting to climb the ladder. You join as a team member, after three months you are promoted to become a team member staff, then you come to a fork where you can specialise, becoming a hot chef, a barista or a trainer in the shop.
After that you can rise to be a team leader and, after about three years of service, an assistant manager. “Eighty per cent of our managers start as team members,” Wareham says. “If you invest in your people, if you put your absolute focus on that part of your business, then everything else flows. To any small business, I’d say you have to put your money where your mouth is. Don’t have a shiny office, don’t have the lovely Apple Mac computers, don’t do any of that. A traditional company will spend 7% of their turnover on marketing, but we spend 1% and we invest everything in our people.”
The company uses staff reward schemes. Every shop has a mystery shopper visit each week, who is looking for engagement with a team member.
If the mystery shopper has a good experience, team members get an extra £1 an hour for the hours they have worked for the week. “Eighty per cent of our shops get the bonus every week,” says Wareham. 
There are other performance nudges too. For a particularly good example of customer service – helping a parent through the door with a pram for instance – team members are rewarded with Outstanding Cards, which translate into £50 rewards.
There are also perks for the customers. One such initiative is the Joy of Pret which allows staff to give away free drinks to returning or deserving customers. Ben Rogers, a 21-year-old trainee manager, says these perks make customers happy, which in turn makes the staff happy. Rogers, who has been working for Pret for two and a half years at a store in Vauxhall, London, applied to work for the company having seen an advert for Pret’s school leavers’ programme on a website.

Colonel Sanders

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=my_S6ctwu7Q

Fail fast, fail forward

At age 5 his Father died.

At age 16 he quit school.

At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.

At age 18 he got married.

Between ages 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.

He joined the army and washed out there.

He applied for law school he was rejected.

He became an insurance sales man and failed again.

At age 19 he became a father.

At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby daughter.

He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.

He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he convinced his wife to return home.

At age 65 he retired.

On the 1st day of retirement he received a cheque from the Government for $105.

He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn't provide for himself.

He decided to commit suicide, it wasn't worth living anymore; he had failed so much.

He sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life. He realised there was much more that he hadn't done. There was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew. And that was how to cook.

So he borrowed $87 against his cheque and bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbours in Kentucky.

Remember at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide.

But at age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.

Moral of the story: Attitude. It's never too late to start all over.

MOST IMPORTANLY, IT'S ALL ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE. NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.

You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference.

how to start a cafe that is earning



Why do most café startups fail?
Poor pricing strategy - Cafes are already struggling with industry prices that make the establishment of a sustainable business difficult. Add to this some poor pricing strategies and you set up a guaranteed failure. For example, discounting your espresso coffee price to 'get business' when it is the one product that is least price sensitive if the quality is high. Also, charging an average price for products or basing the selling price on costs rather than on market expectation. Sustainable cafe pricing needs to be built on clever 'subjective margins'

The cafe with the staff that make a feature out of remembering customer names, their standard orders and yesterday's discussion succeeds, while those that don't fail. Customers in cafes may soon forget what you sold them but they will never forget how you made them feel.


http://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2014/04/09/want-to-open-coffee-shop-read-this.html
Finally, remember that you open a new business to grow your life. It might seem strange to hear, but you should be planning your exit strategy from the business at the same time that you are planning its growth. If you’re passionate about your business, the long hours won’t bother you. However, if you continue working long hours, after three years you probably will begin to hate your business. Plan your exit strategy by hiring the best people, planning financially for the best and worst of times, and delegating much of the daily tasks. When you can spend more time with friends and family, then you may consider yourself a successful businessperson.

9. Be passionate and full of joy.

People

It is ideal if your team arrives one week before opening (so you need to have had your interviews and selection process about 6-7 weeks before opening)

During the week before opening you need to train the team, get them excited about the business and make them proud of the business.

An example of how this week could run effectively for you:

MondayTuesdayWednesdayThursday
  • Induction
  • Introduction to the concept
  • Meet the key people
  • Where do we want the business to be in one year
  • Menu training
  • Basic hygiene training
  • Standards & rules
  • Barista training
  • Menu training 
  • Service training
  • Menu tasting session
  • Barista training
  • Service training
  • Cleaning training
  • Barista training
  • How we please customers and get them to buy more!



Friday
SaturdaySundayMonday
  • Café set up
  • Final on – site awareness
  • Soft opening for family & friends – ask for feedback
  • Small team in for final deep clean
  • Everyone on board for openin




http://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2012/12/20/whats-the-secret-to-a-successful-coffee-shop/#522077c946d3

My most financially successful coffee shops had a limited number of not-so-comfortable bench & bar stools to make the coffee shop look lived in and loved, but I concentrated on building the takeaway business.

Pre-make as much as possible

Merchandise your margins – Price according to perceived customer value, not according to accounting determined markups. For some well known items you will need to be at (coffee) or even below market price (coke can), and this loss should be made up with high margins on other items that are exclusive to you or in the ‘don’t-care and addictive’ mindset of your customers. So don’t add a blanket markup to your entire assortment, but price line by line according to customer expectations and what the market will bear.

Use loyalty cards – I resisted using these for a long time … but they really do work. Make sure it is a quality card that will last the wear and tear and look good in a customer’s wallet. Nothing better than seeing a new customer’s face light up when you give them a buy seven get the eighth one free loyalty card, but tick off six of them so that on their very next purchase they get a free one. Cheapest customer acquisition ever.

Limit the assortment – Many newbies in the coffee shop game think that wide assortments and extensive product offers are a key competitive advantage. They forget that the customer is simply hungry or thirsty or both, and that a wide choice for most people creates anguish. So cover the necessary categories, but with limited and strategic offers. (e.g. three flavors are enough, three sizes are enough, three types of food/drink are enough). Every item you add to the assortment creates many multiples of management effort (costs) and mostly without adding anything to the revenue streams or customer experience.



http://smallbusiness.chron.com/average-profits-small-cafe-30768.html
Base Profits
Impressions are everything in the cafe business, making it vital for owners to understand the hurdles involved in becoming profitable. Average startup costs for new coffeehouses range from $150,000 to $500,000, according to Matt Milletto, a consultant interviewed for a March 2009 "Seattle Times" article. Insufficiently budgeting for these costs can leave a cafe owner unable to respond adequately when things go wrong, With proper management, however, a successful cafe's base profits should equal roughly 10 to 18 percent of its sales, Milletto says.

Coffee Sales

Coffee sales play a big role in boosting a cafe's profits, since the markup on coffee is higher than most food items. An average cup costs from 55 to 69 cents, which most cafes sell for $2.50 to $3.50, according to consultant Tony Eldred's analysis for the Beanzaround website. If the price is $2.50, selling 100 more cups per day would generate an additional $66,000 per year in profits. Based on these figures, Eldred estimates profit margins for cafes and restaurants should equal 25 and 7 percent, respectively.

全世界最好吃的美食

一个皇帝吃你了天下所有的食物
他传令,如果有谁可以做出一个我满意的美食,我奖赏他三千两金子。
不过如果是输了,就要人头落地。
消息传开了,全城最好的厨师都蠢蠢欲动,虽然冒险但是大家都想尝试把丰富的奖金赢回家。
第一个去煮了国王不满意,他马上人头落地。
第二第三个也面对同样的下场。
这下子大家都吓坏了,都不敢再去试。
一天,一个乞丐跑去
他对皇帝说我可以做出一个全世界最好吃的美食。
“你确定,你就不怕你也付出惨痛的代价”
“请放心,我有信心一定可以,但是。。”
“但是你要答应我一个条件”
“好,是什么”
“就是,在我准备这样美食的时候,你三天不可以进食。”
皇帝很好奇,所以答应了。
三天后,乞丐带了一对包子来到皇帝面前。
皇帝见了就抢上前,左一个,右一个,大口大口地吃了。
乞丐问“好吃吗?”
皇帝答到“好吃!好吃!”
