As Founder and CEO at MonkeyMedia Software and the MMS Catering Institute, I get to spend my time learning from great leaders in the restaurant industry. I am so inspired by the passion, diligence and resilience of the great people that are responsible for today’s stewardship of the restaurant industry.
I am so grateful the the many supporters of this project, and our plan to donate this legacy story to the industry as an education piece is well on track. Check out Back To Basics.
Check out this podcast with Nate Riggs from Last week;
Also, check out these great photos from the project so far with Ron Shaich, Ed Rensi, Darren Tristano and Matthew Corrin. Later in the year, we will be filming with Kat Cole, Dawn Sweeney, Paul Mangiamele, Jim Vinz, Al Bhakta, Ari Weinzweig and Jon Luther Sr.
Thank you to everyone who is supporting this project!
