        In a first-tier cities to engage in traditional restaurants, it has a certain scale can help the market competition, because competition is more intense hot industry, scale is also growing a single store, the store's living space has become increasingly limited.

5.store choice

        If you choose a good store, the success rate of hot pot restaurants will exceed 50%. But the site takes a lot of time and effort, because mature business district has been occupied, the new district is relatively immature and need time to "keep."

        In general, a good district has such features:

1, the resident population and more mobile population

2, catering more intensive

3, ample parking

        Usually 600 - 800 square meters chafing at least 40 parking spaces, not ideal to be forsworn; first door advertising and a better image; Housing internal structure is reasonable, the column can not be too much, otherwise caused to the layout and decoration disorder that affects the effective operating area; storey is not too low to 2.8 meters or more; shop around within two kilometers of the source and distribution of income and spending habits to meet market position.

6.Renovated hot pot shop

        Environment will affect people's mood, which should influence the taste of the hot pot. Previously, Mass pot 30 yuan per capita within, often focus only on taste while ignoring the environment, Tuzao, clay pot, soil and stereotyped shop bench, boring and even depression.

        But we all know, the decoration is deep or shallow "bottomless pit", the popular hot pot, how to make highlights in limited circumstances, people come to feel different, it is a complex matter.

        Well decorated hot pot with rich themes and content, customers can feel the unique culture and influence mood, eating combined with music, strong participation, relaxed atmosphere of harmony and so on. For example, shop, sweeping away people more than generous to the public pot, delicate inadequate stereotypes, people feel hot Butterfly Fashion: Fashion and jumping appearance on the internal environment, details the use of metal, glass and other materials, spacious and bright, express a stylish dining atmosphere; stool can choose from Ikea supermarket, a 70 yuan, not expensive, but sitting comfortably; sofa color can also be customized to create a stylish, casual pot right feeling, this bright colors, bright space, customer mood brightened.

        To stress, 600 - 800 square feet of hot pot restaurants, generally installed 2 - 3 months rent when the landlord must keep speak good three months rent-free period of renovation. In addition, the staff of the pot shop clothing must be consistent with the style of decoration.

        First, recruitment management staff, including the manager, front office manager, supervisor, chef, finance, Kuguan, procurement, their work experience and experience to try to inspect places where they worked, because some people are more but the facts so that we can say, and some people poor expression is very capable, therefore, must be after many visits, in order to fully understand their ability to work and professionalism.

        After the management staff to determine, and then recruit others as a welcome, bar staff, waiters, pantry helper, chef, parking staff, cashiers and cleaners and the like.

        After attracting employees, but also solve the problem of eating and living. To 70 people in the vicinity of several sets of pot shops rent housing, the use of bunk beds, general sets of three houses can live 10 - 15 people; employees do eat the meal or buy lunch.
