Explode Your Customer Base With The Paco Method For Restaurants & Bars A Cheatsheet-Checklist

You’ve heard this one haven’t you?

How does a business acquire a valuable Lifetime Customer and Loyal Fan?  

Acquire them as a New Customer first!

The Paco Method System For Restaurants & Bars And All Food Service Establishments To Explode Your Customer Visits is based on our new book and media coming soon.

“From the First 5 Seconds To A Lifetime Customer And Fan:   A Revenue Growth Program for New & Developing Food Trucks, Bars & Restaurants in Tourist & Other High Traffic Areas…Facing Stagnant & Slow Growth. Real Stories From The Front Lines & Strategies You Won’t Hear Anywhere Else.  From Psychology to the Latest In Tech To Explode Your Customers And Revenues.

The Paco Method System, aka “From The First 5 Seconds To A Lifetime Customer and Fan”, for those who like more formal titles, is much more than a couple of tweaks here and there in your food service, restaurant or bar or food truck operations. It’s an extensive ongoing program to fill the Empty Seats in your establishment consistently and turn your cash flow around. The kind of empty seats you see in the photos here in this post.

We’ve been receiving questions about The Paco Method, since we’ve announced our launch for April 4th. We’d like to add more information.

It’s been developed for any early stage restaurant, bar, food truck or any food or related service business, new or relaunching. It’s a system meant to get you up to consistent cash flow and profitable status as soon  It’s very flexible and highly adaptable to other similar businesses needing to attract new customers first, before you move into phase 2 of the Paco Method, which turns them into loyal long-time customers and fans of your business.

Many have asked is it only for food service establishments. It’s designed at this point to be implemented with them, but easily adaptable to other types of business and our Team would be glad to work with any “Good Fit” kind of business.

How do we get business to see the power of the Paco Method and our systematic approach to attracting new customers, and then creating zealots of your brand and business?  We begin to talk via email and online.

Firstly, we direct you to our template for Calculating The Value Of Every New Customer. This leads you to an Annual Revenue Increase Calculation.  Then we ask you to Calculate the Lifetime Value of that Customer using variables such as retention percentage, years as customer, number of annual visits and average value per visit.

You decide that the financial and management benefits of a managed/systematic New Customer/Lifetime Customer marketing and communications program are to your benefit.  We both feel like we are a good fit and you are prepared to test drive the program for a minimum period of 3 months.  Longer, if you wish exclusivity in your area or type of restaurant.

 

We provide you with a detailed Checklist and CheatSheet that you will use in implementing the program with our ongoing assistance.

The Checklist will include the following in full detail and much more proprietary information only our Clients will see.

*Detailed Analysis of your Competition

*Detailed Analysis and Audit of your Business

*Ownership/Mgmt Staff Orientation & Training: Mindsets, Service & Quality Standards, Desirable New Customers, First 5 Seconds, Reputation & Reviews, Media Relations, Community Relations, Brand Identity, More.

*Administration:  Systems Provided

*Daily/Weekly/Monthly Procedures: Templates

*Pre-Program Data Collection: Templates

*Daily/Weekly/Monthly Data Collection: Procedural Systems & Templates

In summary, when you unbox the program, your Checklist will show you the Systems & Methods Training & Procedures, The Tech: Hardware & Software and the Integration & Support Procedures. Away You Go.

But you’re not in this alone. It’s your business, but things always slip, even when it comes to something so crucial to your ultimate success.  Acquiring New Customers on a systematic consistent ongoing basis.

You need to feel you are Accountable to someone. That’s us, but of in the most friendly client-consultant kind of way.  We’re here to ensure the job gets done. Your seats get filled.  Revenue grows.  Cashflow is more consistent.

10 Reasons Why Teams Function At Less Than 100%. Yes Your Team Too!

10 Top Reasons Why Teams Function At Less Than 100%. Often Well Below 100 per cent.  Is This Your Situation? dysfunction_junction_cold_spring_ny_photowalk-e1339601940384Strengthen Your Teams With Team Enhancement Ideas For Any Workplace.

When Teams Are Not Functioning At Peak Levels?  You Feel It Everyday. You See The Signs Everyday.    

I think of football.  Clearly a team game.  One of the greatest football coaches ever, Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots defined team success very well. It applies to business, organizations or sports

“On a team, it’s not the strength of the individual players, but it is the strength of the unit and how they all function together.”

by Bob Rempel,  RempelGroup Partners      bob_dec2015

Most Teams function well below optimum. Far below optimum. This almost seems to be the norm. The expectation.

Is this your situation or similar to it?  It doesn’t matter whether you are in a leadership position in a small or large business, a nonprofit or social enterprise, educational organizations or other organization, have a sports team at any level, or you have virtual or real teams or a combination of both.  The symptoms are the same.

It’s something you’re feeling.  You see it too.

*Measurable results are slipping.

*Deadlines are missed.

*Negativity about projects and customers seems to be increasing.

*People are not engaged.

*You don’t hear laughter.

*Attendance at voluntary events seems to be declining.

Are these familiar to you?  Do you see some of these other symptoms:

*Lack of enthusiasm about core aspects of your business or strategy.

*Abandon ship thinking.  No belief in the future for the

*No belief in the future of the business.

*Unsupportive of other team members and a me-first approach.

*Problem solving shows no energy, no creativity, no initiative.

In a sports sense, when I coached high-performance level athletes, we used to say the team member was playing for the name on the back of the jersey, not the team name on the front.

This is critical if you want a high functioning team at an executive level.   I adopted the phrase in my executive management over the years that I heard from many of my capable superiors and leaders over the years.

“I trust your ability and talent, bring me solutions, not just problems.”

Contrast that with the following voices you could be hearing:

*Work life is Fun

*Work life is Challenging but it’s good for me.

*I like the people I work with.

*There are some amazing people here and I liked them more as I got to know them better.

*I’m excited about our new Project.  I understand it and I think it will be great for the business.

*I like the people I work with. There are some amazing people here. and I liked them more as I got to know them better.

*I like (Leader’s Name).  I don’t always agree with him or her, but I respect him/her for their knowledge and experience, their obvious hard work and dedication, but most importantly, how they at least listen to what I have to say.  I don’t expect they will do everything I want, but I need to be heard.

Take a minute and think about situations where teamwork is never required or the team structure is not used.   Yes, team performance is not closely monitored and maximizing team performance is not important.

Whether it’s Big Business, Small Business, Government from local levels on up,  NonProfit Organization and Social Enterprises,

I’ve been a Team Leader most of my work life and a long time Team Head Coach in sports at high-performance levels.  The best teams had specific qualities or lacked these qualities.

The Sylvia LaFair recent Inc article Top 10 Reasons Why Teams Fail And What To Do,  summarized this best I feel.

Here are the 10 pitfalls to watch out for, as per LaFair.  Turn the pitfalls around and add them to your team work at your business or organization.

  1. Lack of explanation: there needs to be an initial explanation of the business case for change and the purpose of working together in a new way.
  2. Lack of envisioning: without a clear vision of what the future will look like there is nothing to go toward.
  3. Lack of resources: without buy-in as to what will be needed to get to the vision of the future, people feel they are only going to have one oar to row the boat.
  4. Lack of accountability: the need for a specific and structured way to make sure people say what they mean and do what they say.
  5. Lack of planning: must have specific team action plans and deadlines that are possible to reach, even if they have to stretch.
  6. Lack of encouragement: no procedures in place to close skill gaps and have extra training where needed.
  7. Lack of conflict strategies: no agreed upon ways to handle conflict so it does not simmer and fester.
  8. Lack of collaboration: ways to put diverse individuals together to find new solutions to old problems.
  9. Lack of inclusion: everyone needs to know the big picture issues and have a way to participate in adding their point of view.
  10. Lack of reinforcement: make sure that time is given for individuals to voice frustrations and concerns so they do not end up sabotaging by going behind closed doors.

Michael Hyatt says the key factor in dysfunctional teams is Connection.  His comments are worth quoting in its entirety.  “Feeling Connected in the workplace is absolutely critical.  In fact, in my opinion, it may be the number one Life Force driving all positive growth in people, companies, sports teams.

In both cases what’s missing is Connection. If there’s no connection to the organizational vision, the team leader, other teammates, or organizational outcomes, then leaders will fight uphill battles on engagement every day.

But if leaders cultivate those connections, they’ll build teams that are enthusiastic about driving results for the organization.”

Hyatt says there are four things to do:

Remembering the critical link to Cconnection, here are four ways guaranteed to boost team engagement:

  1. Connect your team to the vision. When our teammates don’t understand or care how their daily tasks serve organizational goals, it’s nearly impossible for them to maintain interest in their work. People laying bricks stay inspired when they realize they’re building cathedrals. So take time to explain the why behind the what.
  2. Connect your team to you as their leader. People don’t work for companies; they work for other people. Often, folks don’t engage because their leaders don’t engage them. When leadership is faceless, two-dimensional, or dismissive, they lose interest (or never commit to begin with). It’s the leader’s job to go first—build rapport, demonstrate concern, and personally invest.
  3. Connected your team to one another. People stay engaged with their work when they are engaged with their coworkers. Toxic organizational culture breeds disengagement—emotionally healthy people will find their way to the door. Leaders should look for ways to cultivate mutual appreciation and create opportunities for positive shared experiences.
  4. Connect your team to your results. One of the most important things I did as a leader at Thomas Nelson was to begin regularly sharing our company financials. People could see what their daily work did to shape the quarter and the year. Transparency is a leader’s friend. Don’t be afraid to share the metrics and underscore the relationship between team efforts and organizational results.

dysfunctional-team

Lack of trust is a team-performance-killer if there ever was one. Combined with the corrosive effect of low-trust, lack of trust often prevents people from speaking up about performance issues.

So for leaders with concern about team performance issues, you need to go back to the basics or fundamentals as we do in most things when we have low levels of performance.  This is certainly how we approached when I coached international and national level teams and athletes.

At the core, Teams are composed of Individual People.  Take the time to really get to know the people on the team. As people, as individuals.  Let the people on the team get to know the people on the team.  Take the physical workplace out of the situation in some cases, but in other team growth actions, keep it in, because that is context.

Taking Action:  Our prescription for you involves creating an experiential and growth opportunity combination for your Team Members. Create the opportunity for them to invest fully in the mission, strategy, and tactics for the future of the business, organization or team.  Create the opportunity for a memorable experience and bonding where people at all levels truly get to know and understand each other and Connect.  Hire a Coach for your Team(s), on an ongoing basis.  Retain a Coach for yourself as the business or organizational leader

I invite you to review our “Crush The Competition…Hug Your Customers-Embrace Your Community” Strategy Retreats & Workshops for Leaders and Teams” in our favorite location, Ixtapa, Mexico.  A real hidden gem and great surroundings for the best possible Retreat, we feel.  We and our Partners, create customized experiential learning events for Teams, and hold open to all 3-day Workshops in early December, 2016 and mid January, 2017.  Follow us or subscribe to get updates on our programs.

Summary:  Now Underway: Crushing The Competition Retreats For Leaders and Teams but in a Enlightened Way, with a Heart…and Community and World View…The New Enlightened Business Model Designed For Long-Term Success.  Developed By A Social Enterprise Expert….It’s About Cause Marketing…Communication…Consultation…Customers…Competitor Intelligence…Then The Crush!

“Crush The Competition-Hug Your Customers-Embrace Your Community & The World” (The CHE Program) Retreat style experience and training has been launched by Bob Rempel, Business Consultant/Coach & Partners, to help business leaders and their teams win decisively at the competitive game, create far better strategy and tactics, and do it by using enlightened approaches, including Customer Engagement and Community/World Involvement.

The final program curriculum and choice of presenters is custom designed with attendees, however, Rempel, a 35 year business and non-profit leadership veteran from Canada, and social enterprise and cause marketing specialist, said we can announce now that a semi-comedic presentation on What Narcos TV  and Cartels Can Teach Us About Business & “Crushing The Competition”, which will lead into the Epilogue, also semi-comedic presentation, Crushing The Competition With Heart And Ethics, using additional examples from Navy Seals and the New England Patriots and many others will typically be part of the agenda.

20-20 Business Vision For The Year 2020 & Beyond, Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence, Keys To Making Your Business Customer Centric, Audience Not Content is King, Having Real Conversations with Customers, Turning Customers Into Fans and Advocates and Competitor Intelligence Strategies are also typically part of the curriculum program, he said, often in experiential ways. More details on content available upon request.

“The first thing we heard when we planning this is “””don’t just give us the same old stuff again that everyone else puts on year after year,”” said Rempel.   We heard, ””Get creative, give us interesting content, inspiring locations, make us laugh, let’s be truly experiential, and don’t isolate us from the local community.””  We heard more, of course, such “don’t abandon us after you’ve got us started on the right track…”

This is our intention, he said.  The Retreat fee also includes a minimum six-month contract and services arrangement with the client by the Rempel Team, Rempel said.  You might call it their own “VP of Competition Crushing” and partner in progress, he said.  We only win as consultants if we ensure that our Clients are truly successful with the strategy and tactics, (“crushin’ it so to speak”) and receive many times the value of their one time Retreat cost in revenues, reduced costs and enhanced image. That’s our team’s Customer Value and high ROI commitment, said Rempel.

The collaborative training and experiential 3, 5, or 7-day Retreats are custom styled for each Group, with locations and content providers to be set with Clients.  Attendance open to teams of 2 or more with the best value for groups of 10 plus.

Where clients have no preference, home base for the events is Ixtapa, Mexico, regarded as the “home of million dollar sunsets”, by Tourism officials.  A choice of full cultural immersion and palapa under the stars sleeping to 5-star beachside accommodations is offered. A CEO Only Leadership Networking and Strategies To Year 2020 Mastermind style event will also be held, in the next six months, with dates to be announced shortly.

The Retreat events are open to business participation worldwide.  The natural focus initially is on North America and Mexico, but we will be promoting it broadly as well to Asian businesses wishing to create networks with North American and Latin America enterprise.

“At this particular moment, our crack research staff has determined that there are 153,049 businesses or organization operating worldwide where the CEO or Board Chair just heard or saw a comment, “Our/Their business strategy sucks” or a key staff member was overheard commenting or texting “We’ve got good people but we can’t pull together as a team”, says Rempel.  

“Those numbers are with my tongue firmly planted in cheek he said.  It’s probably much, much higher. We’ve got room to grow”   

As part of our program launch and other promotional initiatives, we’ll soon be launching a Nominations page  where employees and friends of these struggling companies, and even the CEO himself or herself, can nominate companies, organizations, sports organizations, and non-profits who should be “crushing the competition” but for various reasons are not.  

“The training and experience have serious intent and lasting end results for the businesses who participate, but we promise much fun, other great experiences, and cultural immersion that will have a lasting impact on the individual team members.  It won’t be just another Retreat,” Rempel concluded, “or we’ve failed”.

Media representatives can contact us for more information by email:  bob@bobrempel.com or via Twitter @bobremp 

A further announcement will be made shortly on this site to announce the Business Nominations contest.
