Case Studies

Operations

As labor costs increase and technology costs decrease, restaurants are forced to adapt their labor and operational strategies to profitably compete. APT’s Test & Learn™ software allows restaurants to test and measure the impact of introducing new labor and operational strategies before committing to a large network-wide change.

Example labor & operations questions addressed by Test & Learn™ include:

  • What is the optimal labor allocation in each restaurant? How does this vary by daypart and day of the week?
  • Should we stay open later in some locations? Or open earlier?
  • What is the impact of new digital-ordering technologies, both at the point of purchase and for order-ahead? Should we have tablets at our tables?
  • Does new kitchen equipment decrease speed of service?
