I'm really new to this forum and I am in need of some advise. I work for a very small restaurant that is failing miserably. The owner asked me what he needed to do to increase business and stated that having a 21 year old hottie behind the bar is not the answer in his opinion. He is the only bartender and is 63 years old. I have made suggestions to him pertaining the menu and how to lower prices and over-head but he always has an excuse like cutting your own steaks cuts down on consistency. I have over 20 years experience starting from the dish room and have owned my own restaurant that was killed by a bad economy. Is there any way to change someone that wants to have total control over everything? He won't let me do the ordering and chewed me out when I gave him a receipt for ground beef that I bought for under $2 a pound and it was for 10 dollars.
