Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
An intensive restaurant operations workshop, supported by a 100 percent money-back guarantee, promises to help independent restaurant owners and those planning to open a restaurant increase their profits and take control of every aspect of their operation.
Running a Profitable Restaurant: From Soup to Nuts is scheduled from September 25 - 28, 2006, at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Produced and conducted by David Scott Peters of Phoenix-based Smile Button Enterprises, the restaurant workshop focuses on Peters’ trademark SMART Systems — Simple, Measurable, Applicable, Repeatable and Trainable. Peters provides SMART Systems to train independent restaurant owners to solve their daily operations problems, avoid costly mistakes, and maximize their profits and cash reserves.
“By the end of the seminar, I had 141 ideas to get to work on, and I’ve been in this business for 14 years,” said former workshop attendee Robert Snyder, chief financial officer for Big Dog’s Hospitality Group, Las Vegas. “After implementing only a couple of those ideas, we saved more than $100,000 in less than a year’s time.”
Integral to the restaurant workshop, Peters coaches restaurant owners on how to work less and minimize stress while leaving more time for a personal life. Workshop curriculum includes business plan development, managerial accounting and marketing know-how, to complete systems on cost of goods sold, food and beverage controls, human resources and training.
More than seven out of 10 eating-and-drinking establishments are independent operations, according to the National Restaurant Association. In certain industry segments, 87 percent of restaurants fail within their first three years of business, according to a study conducted by Ohio State University. Peters works with restaurant owners to combat the pitfalls causing these failures.
“I found David Scott Peters in 2005, and I attended my first workshop. After working with him and putting his suggestions to use, we were able to reduce our standing inventory by $3,000 to $4,000, and I’ve reduced my food costs by three points,” said Jean Jones, past workshop attendee and owner, The Linden Inn, Hartford, Wis.
