Velocity and Momentum in Business Growth
Article contributed by Mike Berman, COO, Day and night / all service
Rapid, significant and sustained profitable growth is best driven by speed and momentum work in tandem. Easing of Covid-19 restrictions has certainly created favorable momentum for hospitality as diners rush back to their favorite restaurants and free time to travel demand thrusts. By every apparent measure, a return to normalcy has more than fulfilled even the most optimistic of expectations. As Memorial Day heralds the unofficial start of the highly anticipated summer of 2021, every food service segment is gaining momentum. Capitalizing now requires at least equal doses of speed; a lot of tricker power for the industry to harness.
From oil in fryers that haven’t been used for months to improperly shutting down equipment, instead of speed, too many companies are caught in inertial traps to build on the high level of pent-up demand. Food service equipment is made to be used, prolonged periods of inactivity have resulted in a host of unprecedented failures. New equipment installed before the pandemic but lightly or even never used is no longer under warranty, while minor unmanaged things, such as minor leaks that persist in some cases as early as late winter to early spring 2020, are now anything but trivial to be. Without exception, manufacturers have been diligently planning a revival, but no one could properly prepare for the unparalleled massive global scale-up that is now underway. The conspiracy of timing and events unites the already compromised supply chains, a topic this weekly column has raised several times. Just as none of us had seen anything like covid-19 before, we now live through no less daunting unparalleled conditions – further accounting for severe labor shortages across the hospitality ecosystem – at the exact moment it is needed most to build on the momentum of hospitality.
At this point, a debate as to whether failure to heed warnings versus managing by unique circumstances is worse than immaterial, it is counterproductive; a precisely executed gear for all industrial equipment is the necessity of food service. Realizing that today’s momentum will be crushed without speed, leading food service managers wisely prioritize equipment supply chain and service evaluation and monitoring as a critical strategy to build on the momentum of reopening. In many cases, the wisest industry leaders further recognize that the recent Colonial Pipeline ransomware was not an anomalous event, but a reflection of the growing cyber-attacks coming in in waves at the exact moment cyber thieves know. global supply chains are the most vulnerable. It’s hard to imagine that a time hospitality industry’s reward risks could be higher or more likely to fall to the extreme, it’s even harder to imagine that either of us hasn’t learned invaluable lessons in the past 15 months to reduce risk in favor of substantial reward.
Service companies for commercial installation, maintenance and repair equipment are the fulcrum and most sensitive touchstone of the hospitality industry at this most critical time. At the very least, learn about the depth of your service provider’s IT resources, measures and professionals on staff to prevent cyber attacks and business interruptions; the extent of your service provider’s advanced relationships with leading manufacturers to minimize supply chain disruptions; the nature of the (parts) inventory carried by your service company; the number of authorized repair contracts under warranty; The scope of your service provider’s innovations for delivering superior equipment uptime as a way to ignite speed on top of the positive momentum you experience in your business is nothing short of essential. The risks of failure are overshadowed only by the risks of relying on an installation, maintenance and repair company for equipment that is not equipped to meet current and expected market conditions.
