To tip or not?

To tip or not?[Aki Kalliatakis] Where does tipping staff end - I just stopped off at a garage next to the highway to fill up my Smart and grab some breakfast. Petrol cost me R360, plus a R10 tip, breakfast was R63 plus a R17 tip. I also gave the roaming car park attendant another R5 for "looking after my car."

Using inventory control effectively

Using inventory control effectively[Ian Said] Without restaurateurs being able to manage the flow of foods and supplies in an effective manner, the chances of making any sort of significant profit from food service shrink significantly. However, how does one effectively take control of inventory and what does it constitute?

The only thing missing in Rosebank is common sense!

The only thing missing in Rosebank is common sense![Michael Said] Arriving at the new and almost completed Rosebank hub recently, situated between the Zone and the area that once housed Tijuana 220 and Baccarat, I discovered the place had changed quite dramatically since my days of body shots, Corona Beer and Gypsy Kings. You see back in the day, you could almost count the restaurants within 3km of us on one hand. There was Tijuana 220, Baccarat, Late Nite Al's, Moosehead, Bourbon Street and few others; today you would need a Cray Supercomputer to count the eateries, add up the setup costs, calculate the square meters, the seats, the wage bill, the rental bills and most importantly the turnovers required in order to pay for all of this.
