you’re facing at least one of the following issues:
I’ve found that a lot of restaurant owners don’t want to admit that they need help, or that someone knows more than they do. And many of us have no education to prepare us. But something I love about the mastermind group is that everyone is at a different place in their restaurants and only there to help each other succeed.
I’ve gone through tons of motivational seminars, learning programs and other restaurant support systems, and I can tell you this is real! Other programs require busy work and duplication. With SMART Systems Pro, you make one mass entry of your numbers, vendors and recipes, and you no longer have to calculate anything independently. I was spending so much time on other programs that could have been used so much better.
Finally, a program that not only keeps all of our systems in one place, but also ties them all together. Recipe costing cards used to be a painstaking experience; now they are a breeze. Better yet, everyone can understand them. SMART Systems Pro pays for itself with the controls it puts in place, but the bonus comes from how easy it is to use. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to take control of their business, but aren’t sure how to do it.
We attended one of David’s first workshops in Las Vegas. We had no systems at all and after that we went home and got smart. At the time we had two restaurants. We put the purchase allotment system in one restaurant. We saw a 2.8 percent drop in food cost and an $8,000 inventory drop. That was enough to convince us the systems were worth putting in place.
Back when I found David Scott Peters and TheRestaurantExpert.com, I had one restaurant that was making me a lot of money and one that was struggling. I went to the workshop to fix my struggling restaurant and found out the one making the money wasn’t making what I thought it was. Fast forward to today, and I’ve doubled my personal income and am getting ready to open a third restaurant.
The workshop is a great investment in yourself and your business. It’s educational with an ass-kicking motivational speaker. Don't think about going to the workshop. JUST GO!!
This workshop was great! The systems presented make sense: they will be challenging, but anything worth it is always challenging. I can tell how efficient it will make my team and my business.
I only wish I could have taken this course 20 years ago. I thought that I could figure it out on my own, but I was never a natural. Too bad it took me so long to finally ask for some real help and organization.
The course is very helpful and suitable for any kind of restaurant operations. You can use this knowledge if you have fast food, casual, fine dining, or a bar because no matter who you are, you will have problems with food cost, labor cost and other expenses. This course will help you to implement a system to control your prime cost.
This has been the most comprehensive seminar I have been to. I can see real life changes I can apply to my restaurant. I can't wait to start putting these practices in place.
Wow. I had no idea how much information would be given over 3 days. David is ‘Mr. Information.’ I believe, with what I've learned from him, that I will not only run a successful business, but a business that my team members will look forward to coming to each work day. My knowledge level is about to match my passion level.
I found the workshop relevant to our operation and its needs. Even though the material was detailed, the presenter, David, made the experience engaging. It was refreshing to know that the team running the workshop knew, worked and continues to work in our industry (independent restaurant/bars).
