Our Solution

Helping independent restaurant owners succeed.

Running a restaurant can be one of the most difficult businesses to run.

We feel your pain because we’ve experienced it firsthand. And we are reminded of your struggles on a daily basis as we talk with restaurant owners and managers from literally all over the world. Here are the challenges we hear most:

My food cost is out of control

My labor cost is killing our business

My people are IDIOTS

I can’t get my managers to do anything

Does any of that sound familiar to you? I bet it does.

If we could alleviate these challenges AND help you trim up to 10% off your bottom line, would you listen to us?

3 day all-encompassing workshop

Discounted Tuition to “How to Run a Profitable Restaurant: from Soup to Nuts”

David Scott Peters launched TheRestaurantExpert.com with this three-day all-encompassing workshop. It’s unlike anything in the industry. He teaches independent restaurant owners everything they need to know to run a profitable restaurant. Winner Circle Members pay only $375 to attend this semi-annual workshop.

Take Action Seminar Series

The Take Action Restaurant Success Seminar Series

At this seminar learn the key ways you can immediately impact your bottom line, get more cash in the bank and motivate your employees.

After years of teaching our members to aim for a 60-65% prime cost, we adjusted that goal a while back to 55% for any type of restaurant. There’s just too much fluctuation in the prices that impact restaurants – food prices, gas, labor, recessions, etc.

And although a 55% prime cost is a lofty goal, our team can get you there. The secret is using all your systems together so that they work the most efficient way possible.

Hear It from Restaurant Owners Like Yourself

  • "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."

    Steve Brown
    Steve Brown Esparza’s Restaurante Mexicano - Texas
  • "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."

    Dan Carr
    Dan Carr Visconti’s of Leavenworth - Washington
  • "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."
