There is a new trend, or should it be said, a very old, biblical trend, in the restaurant business. Since the days of the old testament, people have made a living catering to certain segments of religious society. Jews ran Kosher booths catering to the more devout customers wishing to abide by the strict religious strictures of their society. Muslims catered to pilgrims making their way to Mecca on a Hajj. Buddhists found specialized eateries that served vegetarian cuisine. Food and religion have gone hand in hand for centuries. Thus, it should be no surprise than this tradition is resurfacing in today’s culinary culture.
Today in America, one can still visit a Kosher deli. Amish restaurants are popular in Pennsylvania and southern Indiana. However, throughout the heartland of America, more and more generic Christian Restaurants are enjoying renewed popularity. Many of these restaurants offer a Christian theme in their décor with an emphasis on family style dining. From Christian books and bibles to statues of Jesus to famous quotes from the bible, Christian restaurants have a captive audience. As we all know, in the south where there are more churches than gas stations, many restaurants cater to church groups and offer specials to church attendees.
There are even several companies that offer to supply restaurant furnishings with a Christian bent. Restaurant equipment is non-denominational, yet the design and décor can be catered to the Christian population. The key to any successful restaurant is not the theme or décor of the facility, it is the food and business acumen necessary to make wise business decisions. One of the best decisions any restaurateur can make is to align themselves with a professional and knowledgeable restaurant supply company.
These RSC’s can make or break a viable restaurant business. Today’s RSC can design, layout, supply and help maintain a proper restaurant business with finesse and aplomb.
One of the key principles in any Christian endeavor is to be wise and successful. Utilizing a vendor than can help one achieve these goals is the most Christian method appropriate for success. So- say your prayers before eating, and pass the mashed potatoes.
