What style of
pepperoni do you use?

ARE YOU READY
FOR ONE OF THE
YEAR'S BIGGEST
DAYS?
M A N DY WO LF D ETWI LER

Many of you already know this, but
the day before Thanksgiving is one
of the top five days in the industry.
There's probably a pie or two in
customers' home ovens, the counter is
full of some sort of casserole involving
cheese and breadcrumbs and -- if
you're like my mom -- there's that
forbidden can of cranberry stuff stuck
in the pantry.
But while you plan for Thanksgiving,
are you ready for the day before?
There's not just product to be
purchased, but also staffing required
and -- perhaps most importantly --
drivers on the ready.
Don't wait until the weekend before
to schedule your staff. You're going
to have those who ask off to travel,
those with seniority who expect off
and those who just plain don't want
to work. Setting the schedule well in
advance lets everyone know who's on
deck. And to make it fair, those who
work the day before Thanksgiving
should receive another holiday off
(such as Christmas Eve).
Finally, make sure you're productready. Take a look at last year's
numbers. Did you run out of anything?
Did you have to make emergency
dough? Bring in emergency drivers?
These are all viable measures of how
you should handle this year's ordering.
Open Thanksgiving Day? Try
to shorten shifts and let all your
employees enjoy time with their
families.
(And please ... leave that can of
cranberry sauce in the cabinet.)
