Avoid costly empty tables

You can set Bonus Points to only activate when you’re not fully booked by 1 PM.

  • Bad weather. Give guests more incentive to leave the house.
  • Cancellations. Replace same-day cancellations.
  • Slow shifts. Guard against unexpected lulls.
  • Location, location, location. Bonus Points can help you counteract a difficult location.

Bonus Points definitely sells seats during periods when we’re not near capacity—it’s bringing in more customers than we would see without it.
