What's the standard % for bonus?
It's going to depend a lot on the place, all owners will cut it differently. I've seen between 3 and 10 % based on how invested the chefs were to the business. My gig bases it on how well I stay on my budget, the bottom line, and has secret shoppers come in that effect how much of that percentage I can get. Ask the owner what numbers/objectives need to be hit in order to receive bonuses and make sure those goals difficulties are in line with the reward. Hope that helps.
First, you're quite lucky to even be receiving a bonus in this kind of economy. Good for you. You seem to have a handle on all the numbers. I have always calculated
the totals saved and ask for a percentage of that. Owners seem to be more rewarding if they are letting go of monies that they would have spent if you were not being
successful in lowering numbers. Figure out how much you saved and ask for a healthy percentage of ythat.
Many of the places that I have worked, that have offered a yearly bonus, offer up to 10% of my yearly salary. Of course there were many requirements for making that full amount and each requirement was a percentage of that bonus. Meeting or beating food cost was worth 30%, meeting or beating labor cost was worth 25%, certain scores on health inspection or safety audits worth 10%, etc.
Clearly, I've been in the position to receive these generous offerings, so your post... While, making no sense grammatically, also makes no sense theoretically because of said numbers being met. Continuously.
