Front-of-house means no cleaning in the kitchen but everything else besides kitchen. Our restaurants we don't clean any tabletops or on the bar but all flooring, moving tables to clean floors underneath, bathrooms, dusting, etc. Just to give you an idea of what some restaurants pay, I know I am the only one who will disclose this info here but will do so to help you. In my area at some chain restaurants:
- Applebees 7 x per week after 2:00 am for entire rest. including kitchen pays $1,750.00 per month.
- TGI Friday's are at least 7,000 sq.ft - 7 x per week after 2:00 am including kitchen pays $2,000 - 2,500 per month
- Another popular chain for 7 x per week including kitchen pays $1,850 per month.
I clean two independent restaurants similar in size to your, 7 x per week for front of house only and I get $1,695.00 and $1,895.00 per month. Takes 3 hours total to clean. Your location shouldn't take one person more then 3 hours to clean either. That's 90 hours per month. If you feel you can get $3500.00 per month then definitely try for it. I did give a quote to Cheesecake Factory and they are paying $17,000.00 per month! No other restaurants I have come across want to pay what they should for good cleaning. That's why everyone of them have filthy ceiling vents, dust on displays, dust on overhead lighting, etc.
