If you operate an independent restaurant, you know that your business is facing increased competition, labor shortages, and rising operating and occupancy expenses. Join us on Tuesday, May 23 from 8:00-10:00 am to discuss and get help on these issues. Chris Tripoli, owner of Houston-based Á La Carte Foodservice Consulting Group, will be in Casper to discuss how restauranteurs are succeeding and expanding, and their strategies for success, despite the challenges that are facing the industry today. Chris will discuss menu practices to increase revenue; technologies that will help manage costs; principles to properly select, train, and retain staff, as well as innovative ways to promote your restaurant, without a costly marketing budget. In addition to the classroom presentations, Chris will be doing individual consulting with several local restaurants. Because consulting time available is limited, appointments will be scheduled on a first come/first serve basis. Speaker: Chris Tripoli, A La Carte Foodservice Consulting.
