What You Need To Know About Optimizing


At Your Restaurant

Omnivore’s approach is to deliver quantifiable results by putting a laser focus on the Restaurant Value Equation: Transactions, Average Check and Expenses. We optimize each area in a way that is meaningful to consumers, staff and support centers.

Restaurant Headwinds
and Opportunity

Restaurant operators are at a crossroads. A good economy and tight labor market have made for a shortage of available food service workers. Wages, because of the shortage and new local minimum wage laws, are raising the cost of labor. Concurrently, technology and changing consumer habits are creating demand for different skill sets for employees.

Customer expectations, driven by new technology and easy access to information about everything related to food, make it more important than ever to have the right people working for you and having the right systems to assist in finding and maintaining the right people for your organization.


An encompassing online platform to manage people components including onboarding, scheduling, timesheets and payroll.


Technologies to help operators be compliant with complicated labor laws but be easy to use in managing staff and resources.


Powerful templates that help in scheduling resources based on key criteria while also understanding restaurant shift patterns.

Customer Insights

Consumers expect a high level of customer service from operators. They expect courteous, efficient service. Most important they expect orders to be correct. Social media has set the expectation for every consumer. Consumers read the reviews (often calling out specific employees), see the pictures, map the location, and chat with other consumers all before entering the restaurant for the first time.
