Train your quick-service employees that accuracy is about getting the order right, no matter what. Most mistakes occur when guests make special requests. Hold the pickles. Easy on the mayo. No olives.
There’s a huge difference between hearing and understanding. To listen successfully at the counter, lean forward and make eye contact, looking away only to work the register. Ask questions if you’re unclear about anything guests say.
Counter crew should repeat back the order to guests — both when taking it and delivering it. Kitchen crew should double-check every order against the original ticket or order screen, paying close attention to special requests. The order should be checked again as it’s placed on the tray or in the bag.
