Whats Inside 1


How does restaurant scheduling work?


As covered in our guide to restaurant scheduling, a restaurant schedule – when done correctly – perfectly matches up the necessary number of staff to the number of guests they can handle.

This takes a lot of meticulous planning, research, and trial and error. This process isn’t simple, and it can take a lot of time to successfully build a schedule that works for you and your team.

The good news is that a restaurant schedule template can massively help here, and there are multiple ways to go about this process.

How do I create a restaurant schedule?


Many restaurants schedule week-to-week, but it varies from restaurant to restaurant. You’ll have to decide what works best for you and your team.

Whatever you decide, remember to consider your schedule lead time – from how soon it’s published to when it begins. Even a two-week schedule can feel last-minute if Monday’s shifts aren’t posted until Sunday morning.
