Char-Steakhouse-Red-Bank-550x448“I’m excited that Char Steakhouse is opening in Red Bank.  Their investment is great for the city of Red Bank and all retail business owners. Consumers demand choice, so whether they are in the mood for steaks, seafood, Mexican food, or great hand-made pasta, Red Bank is the best single destination in Monmouth and Ocean County.”

Gaetano’s opened their Italian kitchen over 10 years ago, so Thomas Cappello has seen many restaurants come and go.  On the other hand, Cappello has a good feeling about Char. “When a restaurant invests millions of dollars to build a world class facility and brand, they are not amateurs.  Red Bank will benefit by their significant investment.”

The colorful orange awnings on Broad Street that decorate the exterior of Char Steakhouse are hard to miss when driving down Broad Street. The restaurant is located in the building formally occupied by Ashes Restaurant.   Gaetano’s is located one block away from Char Steakhouse on 10 Wallace Street, adjacent to the Red Bank public parking lot.

Gaetano’s is open seven days a week, operating under the following schedule:

  • Lunch 11:00 – 3:00 Monday – Saturday
  • Dinner 4:00 – 10:00 Monday – Thursday
  • Dinner 4:00 – 11:00 Friday & Saturday
  • Dinner 1:00 – 9:00 Sunday (dinner only)

Five Reasons To Educate Your Dealership Employees

After dealership employees have been hired, it is key to keep their education growing long after their initial training. Ensuring team members are up to date on the latest industry practices is ideal to keep the dealership thriving and business booming.

We’ve complied the top five reasons why it’s important to educate the employees at your dealership:

  • Grow Profits
  • Inspire new ideas
  • Build loyalty
  • Increase productivity
  • Train others

Educate Employees To Maximize Profits & Sales

Perhaps the most important reason why you should educate your employees is to grow profits. As a result of everyone on the team, the overall goal of selling more cars is met and profits increase.

Let’s take a step back and start from the beginning. By giving employees the opportunity to grow their skill-sets and be made aware of the latest developments in the automotive industry, they will create new ideas to implement and grow the dealership.

Employees will be inspired to create and implement new ideas throughout the dealership, which builds a sense of loyalty and trust between the dealer and team members. Employees will want to work harder and use their newfound information towards making their dealership more successful; this will also increase productivity and work ethic.

Not only will team members want to do better themselves, they’ll want to make their peers better as well. Employees who are well educated in digital marketing will be able to train others to take their efforts to the next level. Spreading the knowledge of SEO, paid search, social media and content throughout the dealership will increase the efforts and grow the expertise of others.
