#67: How Restaurant Owners Can Identify and Overcome Burnout

March 8, 2023 by David Scott Peters

These past three years have led many restaurant owners and managers toward restaurant burnout. As a restaurant owner, it’s easy to have a feeling of despair that has been almost impossible to shake. Between group coaching calls, one-on-one coaching calls and discovery calls, I talk with a lot of restaurant owners just like you. I can tell you that I hear you and feel your pain.

While challenges in the restaurant business are a given, sometimes there are so many that you find yourself feeling jaded. Challenges ranging from staffing and cost controls to marketing and legal issues can overwhelm your love of your restaurant and make it so you don’t even enjoy it anymore.

In this episode of my podcast, The Restaurant Prosperity Formula, I'm sharing with you how to tell the difference between work related stress and burnout, how to avoid burnout, and, finally, how to keep or reignite your passion for your restaurant to keep burnout at bay. Losing your passion for your restaurant is the worst thing that can happen to it and everyone involved. Instead, follow this advice to get off the path of burnout.
