Yesterday was a hectic but productive day, we continue to make progress on the autumn menu, our work on our weekly stock control project is making progress, our labour remains well controlled and we launched our latest stores sales competition. Progress is generally satisfactory but we need to do more to drive sales and I’m hopeful that some of the changes to our food plus a new range of cakes will help.
We also had a really good succession meeting and I’m delighted as to how well our new people team is doing. We are making progress on recruitment as the number of open vacancies is reduced and our new head of our people team is already adding value.
This morning is going to be spent preparing for our P&L review tomorrow plus I will be spending time looking at the sales of individual shops as we start some local store marketing campaigns to help drive sales in selected stores.
