Does the mere thought of writing a budget make your head spin and your heart beat with anxiety? You’re not alone. Most independent restaurant/bar owners use their “gut” to budget their restaurants/bars instead of the real numbers. But it’s not enough. Your budget is a guide to success. It points you - and your management team - to profitability. In this special three-hour session, David Scott Peters, restaurant coach and founder of TheRestaurantExpert.com, teaches restaurant/bar owners how to build a budget the right way. In addition, he teaches attendees how to use the budget to be profitable, focusing on the most controllable number in the restaurant/bar. Peters will teach attendees how to put systems in place to not only control this number, but reduce it and make money. As a bonus to attending this session, Peters will demonstrate budgeting with his Budget Creator Software, and everyone who attends will receive a free copy of the software. Attend this session to learn:

  • How to change your management team from a reactive style to a proactive one that gets you results
  • Fool-proof systems for reducing this key number and making you more money
