According to research gathered by Ohio State University, 60% of restaurants fail within 1 year of opening and 80% of restaurants fail within 5 years.

Restaurants are closing due to the disconnection between the front of the house and the back of the house. Poor customer service, hiring inexperienced managers, as well as poor food execution are some of the top challenges that restaurants experience and ultimately, lead to them closing their doors for good.

Are your reviews out of control? Do you find it hard having to run a successful restaurant AND having to manage difficult customers who create negative reviews BEFORE coming to you? Or maybe you have grown so much that you are short-staffed and you truly do not have the time to hire the appropriate staff to support your business and represent your brand. If you’re running into obstacles that are keeping your restaurant from performing at its maximum potential, The Dining Coach workshops and strategies are right for you.

Whether you're looking for a speaker for your next event, an undercover customer for non-biased feedback, or a management workshop for your leaders, Demetria Gilkey brings a new perspective into restaurants throughout Louisville, Kentucky and the surrounding areas.
