Restaurant Owner Success Depends on This Person
To join my coaching program for restaurant owners, you must have a right-hand person who can help you. I call this person your implementer. This person will learn with you but implement and do the work. This a requirement because as the restaurant owner, your attention can often be required in many other areas of the restaurant. Your implementer is there day in and day out, following the systems and keeping the systems moving forward.
