Testimonials
"I am a small business owner. I must say this is the best tool I've ever subscribed to. I was suspicious at first, I did not expect much but this is awesome. Thank you so much."

Gesine Franchetti
The Topaz
Santa Rosa, CA


Your website and magazine have been extremely helpful to our growing business. We are just about finished with the construction of our new location. I have learned so much from your articles, the online seminars, the discussion forum and the spreadsheets are an invaluable asset. I continue to learn something new every day.

"You are giving me a great education. I can't soak it up fast enough. The articles, templates and especially the online training are heading me in the right direction to having a great business."

Martin Hardy
City Bagel Café
Siloam Springs, Arkansas


"I've found everything on the site to be a big help. From the financial side to the menu, the amount of information has been a bargain for the price of a subscription!"

Eddie Scoggins
Tavern At The Village Green
Cleveland, TN


"I am now in my second year of being a member. My only regret being that I did not find you in my prior 8 years as I would have saved a lot of money and grey hairs from your tips and formats. Thank you for indirectly saving my restaurant & for the growth I now see."

Marc Cedron
Printer's Alley Bar & Grill
Memphis, TN


"Since becoming a member, I have literally changed the way I do business. My attitude has changed about every aspect of my restaurant and in implementing many new systems which you re-enforce on your website, I have seen drastic improvements. I'm making more money, my purveyors are making more money and my staff is making more money."

David Chicane
Pearle Restaurant & Oyster Bar
Dublin, NH


"RestaurantOwner.com is a wonderful asset, glad I discovered it. I’ve deleted two full time positions, reduced my inventory, & have been tracking everything much better. I am breaking even now instead of borrowing more money!"

Joleen Coles-Wilt
Matters of Taste Bakery Market Café
Honolulu, HI


"So far, we’ve revised our accounting system and introduced the prime cost concept. My prime costs are dropping because of focusing on both inventory and labor together. This will improve my contribution margin by $120,000!"

Brian Fitzgerald
Paddy's Brewpub & Rosie's Restaurant
Kentville, Nova Scotia


"Thank you for this site. Little guys like me need all the help we can get and it is wonderful to be able to get answers to questions here."

Margaret Williamson
Hizzoner's Uptown Deli
Bellingham, WA


"I have sung the praises of your site to many of my friends, associates, and suppliers. There is a wealth of information and material available from your site that is of tremendous benefit to all independent restaurateurs. We have used virtually everything you offer in some form or another, from the restaurant by the numbers material to all of the articles on service, management, training, etc. The templates for training manuals and various forms have saved us a lot of time which would have been spent compiling and organizing this vital information."

Robert Hodgson

"This website is "exactly" what I've been looking for. I'm absolutely thrilled with what I've learned so far. My only regret is that I didn't join sooner."

Stan Lewis

RestaurantOwner.com's business plan template absolutely hits the mark. Its contents are thorough, pertinent, applicable and text book perfect. My company literally saved thousands on a business plan by simply downloading RO.com's template.

Steve Paoli

We're here in the 18th hour of putting together our business plan for our new and most expensive restaurant #3. Using your spreadsheets has made this the easiest business plan we've put together and we're all giggling at how much fun it is...this is the most value I have ever received for any membership in any organization....ever. Keep up the exceptional work!
