Jim Taylor


After over 20 years in hospitality management, Jim realized there is a gap in developing management understanding and business optimization strategy. Now more than ever, the industry needs these systems to dig its way out of the hole it finds itself in.

Jim created a system that works by working side by side with executives, analysts, and on-premise management. Every time.

Now he works with restaurateurs, owners, and management to educate them from the top down on how to optimize productivity in their businesses and make results more predictable and results easier to understand.

Along the way, improving employee experience, management experience, and customer experience.
