Software Solution for Managing Satellite Kitchens

  • Published on : 21/06/2016

The magic that captivates the senses of customers at any restaurant is not just in the ambience, the service, or the décor, but primarily the kitchen. It is the kitchen that makes lip-smacking food, experiments with cuisines, customises dishes as per requests, and is responsible for increasing the frequency of customer visits. There are various types of kitchens depending on the kind of eatery that is being run. Central or main kitchen is the most popular form of a setting. However, it is important to understand other types as well.

Satellite Kitchen is one of the most strategically created solutions to combat restrictions in terms of reach and geography. For any restaurant business to grow exponentially, the location disadvantage could hamper its business. A satellite kitchen is created to cater to a specific outlet when the central kitchen cannot do so due to geographical disadvantages. Although a satellite kitchen can serve and manage most of the preparations on its own, there is still a great level of dependency on the main kitchen for principal ingredients such as the chef’s special sauce.

The biggest challenge here, however, is to keep a tab on what the kitchen can manage on its own and what its dependencies on the central kitchen are. The best solution in such a setting is to implement a End to End Restaurant Management Software which comprises of (i) Restaurant Point of Sale software (POS) which works at an outlet level and can be seamlessly integrated with the (ii) Head Office or the Central Server software called as SCM, (iii) Online Ordering App, (iv) Restaurant Call Center Solution and or (v) Mobile Apps that work at the Central Kitchen and Head Office.

With POS, it is possible to streamline billing, profile customers, generate reports, get feedback, and a lot more. With the help of Material Management System or SCM that complements POS, inventory can be managed in real-time, procurement from suppliers, prevent food wastage, control theft, etc. It also notifies users if critical stock levels are nearing so that the central kitchen or suppliers can be contacted immediately.
