A restaurant mission statement is used to convey your restaurant's raison d'être – or reason for being – to potential customers, the media, investors, really anyone who hasn't come in contact with your brand before.
If you're a newer restaurant or you're considering rebranding your concept, creating a restaurant mission statement is helpful for a variety of reasons, including the fact that:
- It makes you really stop and think about why you got in this business in the first place.
- It aligns the many moving parts within your restaurant under one, consistent message.
- It makes making business decisions easier, regardless of who within your restaurant is in the driver's seat. When faced with a choice, you can now ask yourself: does this move my restaurant's mission forward? If not, why are we doing it?
- It tells the world what you're all about and separates you from your competition.
Creating a restaurant mission statement takes some soul searching. To get the process kicked off, you will need to spend some time thinking through your restaurant's core values; they are the root from which your restaurant's brand, mission, and vision grow.
