What We Offer

Members Get the Benefits

TheRestaurantExpert.com is membership-based. For a monthly subscription, Members get coaching and training services along with our full-scale online restaurant management software.

Every Member receives a monthly one-on-one call with their restaurant coach. Your coach helps you identify your biggest challenges, sets goals for overcoming them and then holds you accountable for achieving your goals.

Software

SMART Systems Pro is a complete restaurant management software program that covers the front of house operations, kitchen systems, back-office systems and everything in between. It was created for you, the independent restaurant owner, to tie all your systems together, to simplify the management process and to allow you to access your numbers from anywhere. It’s an all-in-one solution that allows you to hold your management team accountable, ensure your guests are having a great experience every time and work on your business rather than in it.

Coaching

Not only is our software designed specifically for the needs of independent restaurant owners, but the ongoing coaching and training opportunities make sure you maximize the benefits of the software. Plus, technical support is free!

Training

You can buy the tools and gadgets that promise profits, but learning how to run a profitable restaurant is key. TheRestaurantExpert.com offers several opportunities to advance your restaurant operation knowledge and skills, from accounting basics to leadership. Between the semi-annual three-day workshop, our quarterly one-day workshop and our specialized regional workshops, there is no shortage of chances to increase your knowledge as a restaurant owner.

On top of these operational workshops, every Member is invited to attend the near-monthly software training classes held in Phoenix in our on-site training facility. These trainings last two days, are free for Members and provide our Members the opportunity to master the software that is so essential to running a successful and profitable restaurant.
