What best describes my company
Personal Quote
People, are the people that will help you!
Over 15 years in the restaurant industry, including six years in key leadership roles: four years as a General Manager, two years as a Director of Operations. Industry experience has resulted in an innate ability to adapt to all situations and maintain focus in any fast-paced or high-stress situation. Hands-on leader who is able to effectively build teams, develop staff to perform under specific standards, demonstrate excellence, and maintain high levels of morale. I am able to focus, and give one on one attention to customers and employees; creating the ultimate customer and working experience. Attributes are proven by unfounded loyalty of patrons and staff members. Consistently able to find ways to work smarter; saving money and man-power by implementing unique systems company wide. Have taken two established poor performing restaurants from loss to profit in less than three months each. Opened five restaurants to date; four as General Manager, one as Director of Operations. As Director of Operations, I oversaw everything from construction, décor, hiring and training, initial small-wares order, utility contracts, menu, costs and budgeting, equipment procurement, advertising, and kitchen design.
