As a result of what David taught us, I promoted my kitchen and assistant managers to co-managers and let them run the day-to-day operations. I was able to take a step back from the business and spend more time at the computer reevaluating the budget, working on numbers, spreadsheets and checklists and it has paid off.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2008
David Scott Peters, restaurant coach and trainer, announced the dates for his next semi-annual restaurant operations workshop. Running a Profitable Restaurant: From Soup to Nuts is scheduled for March 31-April 3, 2008, at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. For those who register for the workshop by Feb. 29, early-bird prices are available.
The workshop helps independent restaurant owners increase their profits and take control of every aspect of their operation. Produced and conducted by Peters of Smile Button Enterprises, the restaurant workshop focuses on his self-developed 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.
"As a result of attending David's workshop and implementing just some of the systems, my management team and I have an amazing amount of control over our operations," said Robb Vavold, owner of Mr. V's Family Restaurant, The Java Station and Java at the Y in Caldwell, Idaho. "We now have hardcore numbers to make good management decisions instead of using our gut feelings which were not always right. Numbers never lie."
Workshop curriculum includes business plan development, managerial accounting and marketing know-how. Over the course of four days, Peters provides complete systems on cost of goods sold, food and beverage controls, human resources and training. Integral to the restaurant workshop, Peters coaches restaurant owners on how to work less and minimize stress, leaving more time for a personal life.
"After 30 years in the business, I thought I had it all down, but I am so glad I attended the workshop," said Janet Hackert, general manager of House of Flavors in Ludington, Mich. "As a result of what David taught us, I promoted my kitchen and assistant managers to co-managers and let them run the day-to-day operations. I was able to take a step back from the business and spend more time at the computer reevaluating the budget, working on numbers, spreadsheets and checklists and it has paid off."
