Solving complaints in the presence of the customer is sometimes helpful in winning back the trust of the customer.

You should also train your employees on how the first one serving customers. You should also teach your employees on how to multitask so that they can perform multiple activities at the same time and serve as many customers as possible.

You should use incentives such as monetary incentives and promotions that can encourage employees to work harder and provide quality services. Let your employees know that you genuinely value them, and you should always instill this in them because this will be the strong bond between you and your employees.

You should have an inventory system that guarantees that you have enough stuff to last for each period so that you minimize the costs of stock outs.
