Think about the last time you went out to eat. Did it take you a while to decide where you wanted to go? After all, there are so many choices. First you need to figure out what type of food you feel like eating (Italian? Chinese? Mexican?) Then you need to pick the restaurant that best fits your mood, location, and budget.

This can get time-consuming. In fact, studies have found that most people spend 15 to 20 minutes looking at restaurant menus online when they’re deciding where to eat – and the average person goes out around four times a week. We’re talking easily over an hour a week spent looking for and at online restaurant menus – even more if you go out to eat more often. And what if you or your partner are the types who get hangry? Simply too much time spent irritated and hungry!

A Faster Way to Find Restaurant Menus

This is where Sirved comes in. Founded on the idea that there must be a quicker, easier way for folks to find the dining information they need (its mission is to connect people to their ideal restaurant anywhere they go), the site compiles all restaurant details – including menus, reviews, hours, locations, contact information, and more – in one place. So instead of having to look up multiple restaurant websites and then struggling to navigate them, you can find everything you need in a jiffy at – all in one place, organized, and searchable too, saving you lots of time and effort.

Let’s talk more about this concept of saving time. While we all recognize that this is beneficial (time is precious because you can’t ever get it back), does it really matter if we’re only saving a few minutes here or there a few times a week? Some would argue that it does.

Small Changes Can Lead to Big Results

You might be familiar with the Japanese concept of kaizen, which roughly translates to “improvement” or “change for the better.” In business, kaizen is often used as a method for streamlining processes and increasing efficiency. The basic idea is that small, incremental changes will lead to big results over time. For example, rather than overhauling an entire production line, a company might implement kaizen by making small changes to the way tasks are performed. This could involve anything from rearranging equipment to changing the order in which tasks are completed. The goal is to eliminate waste and unnecessary steps, which can save time and money in the long run. While it may not seem like much at first, kaizen can have a profound impact on productivity and profitability.

By choosing to use Sirved when searching for a restaurant to order from or visit, you’ll undoubtedly save a few minutes of your time. How? You won’t have to repeatedly go to Google and conduct new searches. Once you find a restaurant of interest, you won’t have to look around for several minutes on its website in search of its online menus (since all restaurant sites are structured differently) or click back to Google (or another site) to read reviews. Instead, you’ll visit, conduct one search by cuisine type or keyword and desired location, pull up and peruse numerous restaurant options all listed in one place, and instantly be able to access the information that will help you decide where to eat. Plus, every restaurant profile on Sirved is structured the same way so you’ll stop wasting time trying to figure out where to find menus, reviews, and so on.

Save just two minutes a day four times a week using Sirved and you’ll end up saving 416 minutes a year! Like kaizen teaches, making small changes can mean big results. In simplifying the process, the Sirved service cuts down the amount of time it will take you to pick a place to eat, giving you and your family even more time to enjoy dining out.
