Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 20, 2007
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 May 7 -- 10, 2007, at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Produced and conducted by David Scott Peters of 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.
Gary and Marilyn Barr, owners of The Brass Door in Lake of the Ozarks, MO., attended David's four-day workshop, Running a Profitable Restaurant: From Soup to Nuts, in May 2006. Although the couple had found ways to manage cash flow and inventory, they found David's systems took them to a new level.
"David is helping us keep our money in the bank instead of on the shelves," said Gary. "Immediately following the workshop, we implemented a budget system for ordering. The first month we saved approximately $4,000 in the kitchen and the bar manager has been able to save anywhere from 4 percent to 6 percent per month."
Integral to the restaurant workshop, Peters coaches restaurant owners on how to work less and minimize stress 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. These tools help owners work on the business rather than in the business.
"As a result of what David taught us, I took a step back from the business and spent more time at the computer reevaluating the budget, working on numbers, spreadsheets and checklists," said Janet Hackert, general manager for House of Flavors in Ludington, Mich. "I promoted my kitchen and assistant managers to co-managers and let them run the day-to-day operations. It's made a huge difference in our operations."
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.
