Flaws are inevitable during planning and once detected at an earlystage they facilitate streamlining operational activities. This papercriticizes Farm Road Restaurant proposal and provides solutions tothe shortcoming discussed.
Question #1: Operation Plan Critique
Despite being a comprehensive proposal, the operation plan of FarmRoad Restaurant especially operation size is flawed. The restaurantplans to operate in a small space of 1000sq.ft. A small space iseffective in reducing the cost of operation and facilitating theemployees to offer quick services. In addition, the employees areable to spot new clients and attend them immediately increasingcustomers’ satisfaction. Nevertheless, since the restaurant targetboth the middle class and affluent individuals, a small space cannotpromote scalability. During peak times such as during weekends andholidays, it will be difficult to accommodate all the new visitors.Without adequate space, customers are likely to be discouraged, andFarm Road restaurant is likely to lose its key customers. Inaddition, a small space will not facilitate its operationsefficiently such as a roasting of meat and packaging of clients’orders. The proposed restaurant targets 40 individuals who will besitting in a room without outdoor dinners or lunches.
Question # 2: Remedy
Dueto congestion, it is difficult to find a spacious room in New York.Nevertheless, in the current times, customers are shifting to openspace dinners/lunches due to relaxing experiences. As a result, FarmRoad restaurant proposal has to include modification of the currentroom. The room can be extended to include an open dining area,without limiting the parking space. Since most individuals move torestaurants with their families, Farm Road will accommodate more than100 individuals. In addition, the restaurant will reduce operationalhazards that are frequent in congested areas such as fires andemployees burn injuries.
