Our top tip for you today is all about the delivery of supplies to your store.

Have you ever thought about how many customers your suppliers have and when everyone wants their stock delivered? Maybe you could negotiate a good discount for arranging an “off-peak” time for the delivery of your fruit and vegetables.

It might take some shuffling and preparation, but it could save you a fair amount in the long run. We heard a story about a cafe saving a up to 5% on deliveries just from shifting their delivery time.

Bonus negotiation points if you pay on time, and agreeing to pay faster could help you save more.
