    You don't offer many details. If the staff are friendly, the food is good, and the price is competitive while allowing you to make a profit, then the only variable that matters is to get more customers to come back more frequently.

    Do you have a program to get the email addresses of your customers and send out (with their permission) special offers that are available only during your "slow times" to boost your business during the slow times?

    There's not much information about it here, and I'm no expert; but one thing that comes to mind is whether or not your sign looks professional.   There are a couple of restaurants that have shown up in my area, and my friend and I so often have said how their sign makes a person not really feel very confident about going in there.  They look "rinky dink".  So often, these places just don't last long.  Right now there's a pizza place/other-food place that has a sign that looks like it's made of painted wood, and the lettering looks like someone probably used a stencil.  It just doesn't look polished.

    We were saying how we don't necessarily think a small place needs a giant, expensive, sign; but it seems like the places with something more professional looking do stay in business longer (at least where I live).  (Again, I'm no expert; and this is just one person's - well, two people's) opinion.)

    Watching Gordon Ramsey shows may help open yours eyes to what many people are doing wrong and offer possible solutions.

    always remember one of the big rules of your business. location, location, location. where your business is will reflect deeply on your success.

    Make the customers happy.  Add to the decor.  If you can afford it, offer live music.  Make sure your workers are extremely polite.  Advertise your business, and try to get more potential customers to take notice.
