Episode 73 – Quantum Chef Sh*t with Adam Lamb

Welcome to another episode of The Restaurant Coach Podcast. It is the cure for the common restaurant. You know it’s sad that average is the new standard for most restaurants. Look around in your market now and you’ll see average restaurants everywhere. The bad news is that it lowers the bar for restaurants and you probably know of a couple average restaurants that are full night after night. Now the good news is that the bar has been lowered by the majority of average restaurants so you have an easier time to stand out above the mediocrity and become a leader in your market. How do I know you have the the potential to become outstanding? Because you’re here listening to this podcast. You’re here because you want to become better and for that…I am honored you decided to tune in. Now, today’s show is an interview with a good friend and culinary brother, Chef Adam Lamb. I love having conversations with interesting people that challenge your everyday perceptions of the world. Adam Lamb is just the chef to do that. He talks about the ups and downs of his career and takes you down to the quantum realm! Hang on for a wild ride…

Episode 72 – The Four Building Blocks To Culture

Welcome to The Restaurant Coach Podcast…it is the cure for the common restaurant.

Each week I receive several questions from some restaurant owners frustrated and trying to get by in from their team… but the most common one is, “Why won’t my staff use my checklist?”

Great question! The short answer is you haven’t told them why they are important to them. With that being said your real issue isn’t how to create accountability among the team. The real issue is not understanding how accountability fits into the overall culture of your restaurant. You see there’s a strategy and a framework for everything.

So your options here are 1) Keep going down the rabbit hole trying to Google and YouTube answers of how to get team buying and ultimately waste more time and become increasingly frustrated in the process or 2) You could follow a proven step-by-step process that helps driven restaurateurs, motivated restaurant leaders, and independent restaurant owners like you double their profits while reducing the hours they work in the restaurant in as little as six months.

Now if I were already your coach I know which one I encourage you to choose. Now if you choose option one, no worries. Feel free to keep banging your head against the wall. Now if you think option two sounds better, if you’re tired of working long hours in your restaurant, if you don’t want a complex plan, and if you’re tired of trying to figure it all out by yourself then here’s what I recommend.
