Like most of you, I also have my mentors that I look up to. In the restaurant industry, I have studied the leadership of great leaders. As I travel around from restaurant concept to restaurant concept promoting the business strategy of restaurant catering, I see common leadership qualities. It’s humbling to see and I am forever grateful to our forefathers who built the early infrastructure that we all trade on. Today, as we know, restaurant sales are expected to exceed $700 Billion in sales real soon.
As I have stated over and over, I believe that restaurant catering sales will one day represent more than $100 Billion of our industry’s sales. Possibly even more. It will become part of our Restaurant DNA. I am certain of it.
I am reminded of a video I made two years ago for Restaurant Leadership Conference. It was really meant as a tribute to a great leader. I posted it here for you today. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I had making it.
