These days political correctness, buzz words and jargon are frankly driving us all nuts and, we believe, not helping us focus on the reality of doing business.
Mamuska Restaurants Limited is a straight-talking outfit. We try to be good customers so that we are treated really well by our suppliers, which in turn allows us to be a good supplier to our very valued and happy customers. We will leave it to the six sigma consultants and others to decide if that is supplying or partnering, but whatever you wish to call it, those are the type of relationships we foster here.
Our customer is king, and we expect to be treated similarly when we are the customer.
We believe in running a sustainable business in the fullest sense of the word. We work hard to keep our physical environment as clean as possible. But sustainability does not begin or end there; we also work hard to keep our economic impact as positive as possible.
We do love finding supplier relationships where everyone wins. Timely payment of employees and other suppliers is crucial to having a financially sustainable business. Our suppliers are either paid by direct debit (on their preferred schedule) or, if they do not have a direct debit facility, once a month in the first 10 days of the month by bank transfer for every invoice issued to us in the previous month.
You are reading that correctly. The boss and the bookkeeper get together on a single day in the first week of the month and that is when every supplier gets paid – in full – for every invoice they have issued to us in the previous month. It’s clean, quick and hassle free. Instead of playing with invoices and answering calls from accounts receivable departments, the Mamuśka! team can focus on uncovering higher productivity and better ways to do what we do.
In return for the prompt and regular payment terms, we expect suppliers to honour warranties, to come out when they promise, and to deliver as scheduled. True, none of us are perfect. But just as we strive towards 100% satisfaction for our customers, we honour those suppliers who work to the same high ideal: A peaceful operation where there are as few surprises as possible!
The result of our philosophy? We have been with the same meat and vegetables suppliers for over 6 years.
