Excerpt from Chapter 1:
The goal of a mission statement is to clearly and concisely articulate your restaurant’s core goals, values, and differentiators. A few thought starters that can spur the creation of a mission statement include:
- What is your promise to customers?
- What is the foundation of your company culture?
- How does your restaurant’s values differ from your competitors’ values?
- What is your restaurant’s unique viewpoint?
- How does your restaurant serve customers’ needs and pain points?
- Why are you serving this type of food in this type of way?
Keep in mind that a mission statement shouldn’t be a full paragraph. Try to keep it to two or three sentences that convey your mission and values in a clear and emotionally compelling way to your audience. Look at this statement as the cornerstone for how you speak to your customers moving forward.
