What is the most important aspect of the guest experience?

Cultivating the core of the restaurant industry in a new day and age.

I think technology is a wonderful thing in the industry, it’s needed. What people are starting to forget is that the restaurant industry is about: hospitality. Hospitality means taking care of your guests the way they want to be taken care of.

. . . They still want to be greeted, they still want to have that personal connection, and they want it on their time. We have to provide a level of hospitality that they still want in today’s world, with some of the cool features of the New Age.

What are some successful tactics you’ve seen or tried lately?

“Taking care of the guest. The biggest thing that I say all the time is that when I guest walks in, you want to greet them authentically. When they leave, you want to make sure they know that you’re really thankful that they picked you.

Who deserves an Ovation in the industry?
