In our restaurant, there are at 10 couples who are together, plus another 10 family members.
It's not a family operation, it's a community operation.
We're in a small town. Everybody knows everybody. It's a tough syndicate!
Our restaurant is owned by a larger corporation, but they only own three other establishments beyond ours. We're continually the most impressive operation for all of their restaurants. And we have the best numbers......
Dating on the job has always happened in my 27 years in the business. Always! It's unavoidable. I know kids who are graduating high school soon, that I may have been prone to putting people together..... a long time ago!
Instead of criticizing it, promote good relations with your staff. They don't have to have sex for christ's sake, they just have to be civil in how they go about their relationship....... everyone has their job. Embrace good relationships! It's healthy! It is!
If they can't perform, than it's a problem. Separate the difference and move forward........
Make decisions based on who the people are, and how they may react with others... customers, staff, etc. Not on who they're fu**ing!
