Meet David Scott Peters

Creator of the Restaurant Prosperity Formula™

He’s taught thousands of restaurants how to use operational systems and create a hospitality-based company culture to skyrocket their profits. He travels the world teaching his formula to restaurant owners, food distributors and a variety of hospitality groups.
