Operations WIG Update – From the desks of the Operations Managers

As you may have seen WIG readiness & execution shops have been taking place throughout the organization. Week 5 starts next week and Nick & Mike will begin conducting execution shops. Restaurants that have less than 10 responses will be targeted first and then other lower performers. Reminder, if we execute at a high level and ask every customer from 7-9 it increases our chances of improving with more detailed tactics. 


How is Iron Arch doing so far?

Week 1 = 74.5% (0.76 surveys per restaurant per day)

Week 2 = 77.1% (0.87 surveys per rest/day)


Let's continue to stay laser focused on our WIG.  85% VOICE 7-9 with getting 3 surveys per day.  Execution = Results. 


Water Heater Survey

Don’t forget to complete this quick survey about your water heater by April 18th.

Tempering Cheese

By now, your restaurant should be utilizing the small pans for tempering cheese. Each pan holds 4 stacks of 20 cheese slices so 1 sleeve fits in 2 small pans. The yellow and green tempering stickers should also be in use. If you need help with placing these, please ask your Operations Supervisor. Additional information is available on the NABIT website or in your April NABIT training kit.


General Manager Community Event Interest

As our footprint has expanded and our communities become more involved, we need help for our events. Please complete the General Manager Community Interest survey by April 25th. Our goal in this survey is to get honest feedback on your thoughts and interest in participating/hosting community events in and outside of the restaurant. Several of you have expressed interest in participating more; we want to make that happen!
