Challenges of a Restaurant or Food Service Business

The food service industry is considered low-risk but that does not mean there is no risk. Every business has its problems and issues.

While the restaurant and food industry is relatively low-risk, there are several points that no venue can avoid. Issues such as generating accurate reports, knowing prime costs, deciding prices, reducing operating costs and expenses, and balancing accounts are just a few of the challenges these businesses face.

Problems concerning these aspects of your business could be detrimental. Time wasted on payment issues instead of these issues could lead to a business’s failure. Revitpay has the knowledge and experience with food service industries to handle these problems effortlessly so that you can focus on day-to-day operations without worrying over your payment processes.

Restaurants are businesses attended by the general public more often than any other type of service industry. Independent restaurants survive mostly based on customer patronage. An unpopular restaurant is sure to fail. Poor service, especially payment processing services, is one of the main reasons for a new restaurant to go under. Revitpay strives to make payment processes seamless so that its business partners can thrive.

Chargebacks plague many businesses but they are extremely common in the food service industry. There are three types of card chargebacks that restaurants experience.

First, there are merchant errors when the food or service does not meet the customer’s expectations and they request a refund through their bank and not the restaurant management.  Next is friendly fraud where customers don’t recognize or remember the charge on their card and request a refund. Finally, there is criminal fraud where a customer uses a fraudulent card to pay for a meal or the staff applies a larger tip than approved by the customer.

While these issues are prevalent in this industry, Revitpay has worked to create a chargeback prevention plan to mitigate the number of chargebacks restaurants receive.
