Providence, like all major cities, is made up of an
incredible diverse assortment of people. Student, professionals, young
adults the list goes on. However, one often overlooked demographic is the
working businessman that often partakes in business lunches and dinners, as
well as personally partaking in a liquid lunch from time to time. In this
article, I will discuss some popular demographics and what sort of restaurants
the Providence businessman may consider to be the best.
Despite the tough economic times, step into any fancy steak
house in the area at just about any time and you will see a busy restaurant.
The reason for this is that there are still people who have remained relatively
unscathed by the current economic climate and for them its just business as
usual. It is worth explaining that lots of high-level business is done on golf
courses, in country club and of course at expensive bars and restaurants. Also,
these high-level businessmen generally try to impress each other by buying
multi course meals and expensive libations and topping it all off with a
generous tip. This is all part of the elite business culture. For this reason,
these fancy steak houses and other fine dining establishments have been kept
afloat by white-collar business industry.
During the week these upper level businessmen will go to
fancy restaurants for lunch meeting and dinner meetings. Otherwise, they may
just go for drinks, but this is still business. For the rest of the world,
these fine dining establishments represent a place for celebrations and the
like. What makes a Providence
Restaurant based on the fancy steak house model so successful? The answer
is more complicated than you might think. One of the main components of their
success is that while most restaurants are faced with less business during the
middle of the week, these establishments can count on the white-collar business
crowd to be regular customers throughout the week for both lunch and dinner.
The next advantage is that because of the expensive food offered and the
regular business, servers at these restaurants are not college kids working a
part time job; they are professional servers who are in it for the long haul.
They must be extremely well versed in the intricacies of the food menu and also
be well acquainted with the fine details of different types wines and scotch.
This ensures that the level of service is impeccable and consistent. One of the big problems that lots of regular
restaurants face is that their staff turnover rate is high and their employees
do not take the work seriously because they do not intend to work in the
industry for their whole lives. For these employees, working at a restaurant is
only a means to a more lucrative end. As a result, these restaurants are at
considerable disadvantage when compared to their fancy counterparts.
Thank you for reading this article about the rich
demographic and where they eat. I hope that I have explained why these
restaurants are successful and answered any other questions you may have.
