					Business plan template for a restaurant

If you own a small restaurant business and you need a restaurant employee handbook for
the first time, then writing the document on your own seems the most practical choice.
This independence pays off when you save money while you retain control over the rules
you set over your business operations.

For first time writers of a restaurant employee handbook, it is understandable that you
would feel overwhelmed. A good place to start would be to use one of those free
restaurant forms that you can download from a restaurant website or blog. These
restaurant forms usually come in MS Word or text format for easy editing in either
Windows, Mac or Linux.

Another good idea is to use special software that puts together a restaurant employee
handbook in minutes. The restaurant software has different versions of the chapters
needed in your handbook. Choose the best blocks of text that says explicitly the message
you want to say.

If you feel one or two paragraphs lack the eloquence, then you can easily edit them
through the software. When you are ready with the final draft, you can print the pages in
two steps. Unfortunately, you might need Windows specifically as your OS because of
the software's requirements.

On the other hand, if you use a ready-made restaurant template for an employee
handbook, then you still get the same result, which is a custom restaurant employee
handbook. However, you would have to set extra time for editing a Microsoft Word
document or a text file.

At the same time, you would have to consider creating a Spanish or Chinese version of
your restaurant employee handbook, which your bilingual employees will find easier to
understand when printed in their mother tongue. If you use the restaurant software, then
you do not need to hire a translator to write your handbook in another language.

However, if you decide to take a hand at manually translating your restaurant employee
handbook, then you have more assurance that your bilingual document means the same
way as the English version. Machine generated translations frequently mess up the
meaning of the text. Hiring a human translator clarifies the meaning and avoids

On the other hand, special software for creating employee handbooks costs money, which
may be more expensive than hiring a translator. If you are concerned with costs, then
using a free template of a restaurant employee handbook is your best option. It may cost
you more time than using the available technology, but once you see the finished
handbook, you will definitely think it is all worth it.

No matter which option you choose, you still end up with a fairly consistent employee
handbook, which covers all the pertinent areas of business operations as well as employee
rights, labor law and other employment issues. To protect your restaurant business from
future employment lawsuits, you should consult a corporate or labor lawyer to make sure
your policies follow the labor laws in your state. – You can download free ebooks about: restaurant
