Redesigning your kitchen will not help. I only say this because most of the time you have to build in safeguards against this kind of thing happening. If payroll goes up to 46% like you say this means your business will have fallen by 24%. You should start by finding some way to recoup at least a part of this. In an ideal world, where cost of production is directly proportional to the cost of labor, then your task will be to cut about a quarter of your workforce. That's a lot by anyone's standards.

I don't know the specifics of the operation, but that 24% is not as bad as it first seems. With proper training and some inhouse selling techniques and promotions, you can temporarily raise revenues by up to 10% for a certain length of time. More techniques are available, but it would be difficult to get it all in. Send me an email if you're interested.
