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. Elite Members attend for free.
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.

Elite Members only
This benefit is for Elite Members exclusively. For times when Elite Members don’t want to wait for a coaching call or a quarterly Membership meeting, they can use this real-time tool to communicate with fellow Elite Members regarding their restaurant issues. It’s a forum where Elite Members connect and share challenges and ideas while building each other up. It’s a way for them to connect with other restaurant owners in an honest and transparent way without feeling the heat of competition like they would from their neighbors.
"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."
