Your Business

Essential business philosophy: Lead from the ground up, as the associate experience drives everything. Guests sense if employees are happy and excited, so my philosophy is to hire well, train well, inspire and equip.

Best way to keep a competitive edge: We focus on hiring well. Also, be interested in what else is happening in the hospitality industry by reviewing statistics and data-predictive numbers. Lastly, love your guests! It is all about repeat business.

Yardstick of success: Measuring secure guest score, which tells me how likely guests are to return; the overall guest satisfaction score; associate satisfaction; and the number of repeat guests, especially in the food and beverage outlets.
