West Texas location, not a great labor pool, company was solid, this location was very strong in numbers and KPI's.
Good management team, the controls were good. customer service better. The restaurant had a bad reputation for service and quality but current management brought the experience back to enjoyable welcoming many returning customers back to the fold.
The hardest part was the constant turnover and hiring in the weak labor pool, combatting the living costs which varied with the oil market. Since it was an older store, maintenance was always an ongoing process,
Hard a good customer base, friendly, warm, solid employee base of about 5 employees which were reliable and responsible.
Learned that management in West Texas is mostly being able to work all positions at any given moment, day or time. Often working several positions in the same day was typical.
Overall, I liked the job and the position
Customers, good management
Labor turnover, weak labor pool, cost of living
