I GET IT
You're too busy putting out fires to address the big picture issues facing your restaurant.
And if you keep going like that, you'll spend your entire career jumping from emergency to emergency until the entire place burns down.
And let's be honest - a few buckets of water is not going to do a damn thing! What you need is an entire firetruck and lucky for you, I've got one with a full tank!
IMAGINE YOUR RESTAURANT THRIVING
No more "razor thin margins"
Your customers keep coming back because they love the experience you offer
Every employee shows up for work energized and excited because they are proud to work there
Heck, imagine being able to slow down enough for two seconds to remind yourself why you got into this work in the first place.
Restaurants across the country are reinventing themselves. You don't want to fall behind.
HI, I’M ALISON
— but you can call me Ali!
I’m the founder of Alison Anne Coaching and Restaurant Revolution, and I love bars and restaurants. I’ve spent over half of my life working in the industry. What started as an after-school job in high school developed into a 17-year career, ranging from bussing tables at a family-owned Italian restaurant in my hometown to my most recent position as the Communications and Events Director of Washington DC’s #1 sports bar.
My time working as a server/bartender — while pursuing a full-time acting career (yeah, one of those clichés) — provided me with incredible time management skills, financial management expertise, and healthy coping mechanisms. And as I moved up the ladder, I gained an essential understanding of what it takes to be a good leader, in terms of both maximizing profits and supporting my people.
I help bars and restaurants identify techniques and policies that are affecting management and employees in both positive and negative ways, develop new policies and practices, and create workplaces that not only hang onto their employees, but that are actually - gasp! - pretty dang
enjoyable to work in.
