Table Maestro, a personalized answering and reservation services to the fine dining industry, will begin this week to offer its services nationally.
Table Maestro will begin accepting new client requests from restaurants throughout the continental U.S., adding to its portfolio of some 20 restaurants on the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic. The company marks the first to offer restaurants a reliable way to increase revenues by outsourcing the burdensome process of taking and confirming reservations, while offering valuable customer interaction at the same time.
Table Maestro, which launched in 2006 to revive the bygone days of the restaurant matre d, serves as an alternative to the traditional hostess by answering incoming calls, making and confirming reservations, managing customer databases, and maximizing table turnover.
When a call goes unanswered, studies show that 65 percent of diners wonÃƒ.Ã.¬Ã..t leave a message for a reservation. At the same time, the average reservation includes three people. Together, these statistics mean that answering just five additional calls a day during off-peak times could capture as many as 24 potential clients who would otherwise have hung up.
