Business Coaching for Restaurants
Our business is helping you. Our success is tied to how well we can help you succeed.
Helping You Grow to the Next Level
The restaurant industry is one of the most – and arguably the most – difficult to enter into, not to mention survive and thrive. It takes more than mouth-watering marinara or sizzling salmon to become one of the 20% of restaurants that succeed. It takes keen insights born from in-depth experience and accurate, up-to-date knowledge of the industry. It takes targeted business coaching for restaurants, right from launch (or, ideally, even before).
Why Do You Need a Business Coach?
Business coaching for restaurants is more than a passing consultation. It is not an episode on a restaurant makeover program in which you magically transform your menu and book solid for months in advance. Coaching is about real life; it’s about the day-to-day; it’s about the hard-line business tactics necessary to run a viable organization with not only the ability to pay the bills – but which has the capacity for healthy growth.
In other words, your business coach will dig deeper. If you are having trouble attracting and retaining talent, why? Are costs eating profits? Are consumers fickle and/or unengaged? Why?
A business coach delves into the heart of these matters in order to uncover the problem areas and challenges – as well as the potential and opportunities – that are unique to your restaurant.
This empowers you with not only the information you need to make key strategic changes but guidance as well. It is difficult to change or correct course; it is never easy to deviate from the plan or from your initial vision. A coach is not there to agree or say “yes.” They are there to push you towards new ways of thinking, new territory, and, ultimately, enhanced results.
A Business Coach vs. Consultant
A consultant has a project. Their engagement tends to be limited to a specified time period. They may give some advice (even some great advice), help implement it, and then go. But they may not bring anyone up to speed regarding the processes and procedures necessary to see sustained results.
A business coach is different. They are not there to do the job for you. They are there to delve and dig into the ‘whys’ of your restaurant or eatery, without accepting the easy or convenient answers. Further, your coach is positioned to guide you through the development of a solid plan and help you work towards your goals with actionable, manageable steps.
One way to look at it is that coaches are not project-based; they are relationship-based. Your business coach strives to teach you systems for success, approaches that generate results, and techniques that you can implement for change and growth.

Do you need a business coach?A
In the end, only you can answer that, but here are some things to ask yourself when considering the decision. Are you feeling stuck, indecisive, or without good sources of advice? Are you nervous that you’ll take the wrong step when trying to bring your company to the next level? Would you value an outside unbiased point of view? Do you feel yourself getting sucked into an unchallenging routine of comfort? Are you seeking accountability? Would your business benefit from your expanded network? Do you know your weaknesses? If so, are you actively doing something to combat them? Are you looking for clarity? Are you a small business? Medium business? If any or all of those sound like you, then it’s worth looking into. Not saying you must need a business coach if you answered yes, but it’s worth having some initial conversations.
Ask yourself this question, why do the most elite athletes in the world have a coach? Because no matter where you are, having someone looking in can always make you better.
What questions should I ask a prospective business coach?A
- How much experience do you have?
- What is your vision of success for a client?
- What are your top three values?
- Do you have plans that will fit my needs?
- What timeline do you think I’m looking at in terms of what I want to achieve?
- What certifications do you have?
- Why are you a business coach?
- What separates you from other business coaches?
- What is your preferred method of communication?
- What are some of your previous results?
How can you be of help to me if you’re not in my industry?A
We’ve been in the business long enough to recognize that most businesses and leaders need the same if not a similar foundation. Of course, you’re the expert – we’re here to bring business acumen to the table. Our program has touched industries across many verticals, and we know that our extensive expertise and network can easily translate across industries.
Can my business afford a coach?A
We know that businesses come in all sizes, and we have programs designed for large and small companies, as well as everything in between. The question to ask yourself and your leadership should be: are you open-minded and willing to put in the work? This will define whether you find the investment a valuable one.
Who is a good candidate for coaching?A
Like many things, coaching is not for everyone. There’s no magic potion! Growing a business requires an open mind, stamina, and a willingness to learn and take some measured risks. Simply put: it’s hard work, and you have to be ready to leave ego at the door in order to have an open mind to learn.
Is it worth investing in a business coach?A
The statistics seem to agree. The firm Korn Ferry International researched just that question and found that after introducing business coaching, 96% of organizations reported individual performance improvements, and 92% said they believed that their leadership effectiveness and management skills improved. Similarly, Merill C. Anderson, a Ph.D. at MerixGlobal performed a case study and found that executive coaching produced a 788% return on investment. Of course, some of the biggest returns can be on the intangibles – such as life and business balance. We guarantee to find our fee inside the first 17 weeks and will only work with you if we see a 3x return on your investment in the first year. That’s just the minimum though, we are confident that if we are a good fit for you and your business, then we can achieve much more than that. But again, the return is good, but the shift in how you feel about the status of you’re business—that’s unquantifiable.
