Significantly, data acquisition is an opportunity for agile restaurants in 2021. In another case, a threat to restaurants that are slow to change. Of course, many restaurant professionals appreciate data analytics, but have difficulties acquiring data. Indeed, this is ironic, considering the wealth of data that is available to restaurants through both foot traffic and online traffic.

Data acquisition is essential in order to capitalize on:

Loyalty programs
Online reviews
Customer feedback
Promotions

Restaurants have access to more data than ever before. Restaurant data as a whole is currently acquired from:
 
  • Inventory (suppliers, food inventory, unit prices)
  • Financials (recurring items, revenues, raw material costs, items sold, cost per item, total food costs, cash flow projections, costs)
  • Kitchen data (cook time, server time)
  • Guest management (wait times, average party sizes, table turn times, seating capacity usages, capacities)
  • Customer data (names, postal codes, phone numbers, birthdays, emails, anniversaries, favorite menu items, purchasing habits)
  • Social media (number of followers, average reach, average engagement rate, best times of day to post)
  • Email (Open rates, click through rates, delivery rates)
  • Digital advertising (Cost per clicks, click through rates)
