There are strategies you can use to improve the profit of your restaurant business in Lagos. So on this very thread or content, I’ll be highlighting things Lagos restaurants needs to make profit.

5 Things Lagos Restaurants Needs To Make Profit

Cook Varieties Of Foods:

One of the things Lagos restaurants needs to make profit from is having more variety of foods in the food menu. This is a strategy majority of the restaurants in Lagos ignore. Don’t just have one type of food or maybe two types of food.

Instead of having only rice and beans, try adding fried and cooked plantain, eba, noodles and the rest of its sort.

Try Adding Soft Drinks:

You’ll find more restaurants that sale just food and sachet water only (this is so because they felt water should be taken after eating). But how about you adding some compliment like soft drinks?

Yeah soft drinks like, Pepsi, Smoove, zero cook etc to compliment the food. By doing so, you’ll stand the chance of selling more soft drinks whenever a customer buys food, because majority of the customer may likely need a liquid to properly dilute their meal. By so doing, you’ll see that your profit will start increasing.

Provide a Cooling System:

Don’t just give them sachet water or maybe soft drinks. Let them see the reason to pay for it. Majority of Lagos citizens (if not all), likes such liquid when they’re cooled or chilled. So give them a reason to pay for such liquids by cooling them.

Have a Menu List:

People will start taking your meal serious the moment they see some level of quality in what you do. Add a menu list, so they could see some level of packaging in your brand and all that. Yeah, this is actually one of the major problems of Lagos restaurants.

If you add a menu list, you’ve automatically added a value to your business and when your value goes up, you’ll make more profit.

Know What Your Customers Want:

You can’t sale snacks close to a mechanic workshop. Know what your targeted customers may need. Always take note of what they usually ask. Don’t always give them the answer ‘’WE DON’T HAVE IT’’ whenever they come to buy meal from your restaurant. Add that thing, that meal they always request for.

When you do this, no customer will leave your restaurant with the reason that you don’t have what they wanted.


The magnitude of your profits (in the restaurant business) solely depends on the strategies you implement. Don’t do a restaurant business that’ll only give you some peanuts at the end of the day. But rather make your income grow beyond boundaries.
