Make More. Work Less.

This is my signature program and roadmap that teach independent restaurant owners how to work more ON their restaurant and less IN their restaurant. 

START NOW

How The Restaurant Accelerator™ Works

It's a month-to-month Coaching Program with a Focus on FOUNDATIONAL WORKSHOPs that will create NEW Results, Habits, and Action.

1. WEEKLY COACHING CALL

You will have a group coaching call where we dig into the module of the week. You'll be given homework and access to me for any roadblocks you encounter. You also have a weekly 1:1 Accountability Call with me.

2. PEER SUPPORT

Network with other restaurant operators around the world in our private Facebook group. Ask questions and get answers from people who have been there. Our network is our strength and your advantage. 

3. ADAPT FOR RESULTS

As you go through the program you will be coached on how to adjust to your restaurant. All restaurants are a little different , yet the elements to long term success remain the same. Do the work in the right order. 

After studying restaurant success for 40 years I can show you the success combination that every successful restaurant on the planet uses. This roadmap when followed will unlock the key to success and allow you to get the restaurant you want, without sacrificing your life to your business.

 

I cracked the code to long-term restaurant success about 10 years ago. It's not about just doing the right things, it's about doing the right things in the right order

Let's break it down...

Phase One - People

LIKE WHEN YOU BUILD A HOUSE YOU MUST HAVE A SOLID FOUNDATION. FOR A RESTAURANT THIS MEANS CREATING AN OUTSTANDING CULTURE.

Workshop 1

Behavioral Assessment Tools

Learn your natural strengths, then harness them to grow your brand and build a high-performance team.

Workshop 2

The knowY Workshop

Your mission, core values, and vision become your compass and beacon for your brand to attract talent and guests.

Workshop 3

Hiring & Training 

Getting a solid hiring and training program in place is the key to attracting better talent and keeping them. 

BONUS 1

Access to The Restaurant Coach™ University

19 of my best training programs, webinars, and LIVE workshops to give you more tools for your development.

"Donald helped us reshape our culture through his coaching program. That has transformed our brand, our team, and our profits to new levels. We now spend more time working on our business and enjoying being restaurant owners."
— Todd & Candy Sheets, Owners, Sno’s Seafood & Steak

Everyday You Wait Is Another Day You Get Further Behind

There is power in starting now! Taking the first step is the hardest. Do something today that is an investment into your future.

Phase Two - Product

AFTER YOU HAVE A SOLID FOUNDATION (CULTURE) NOW YOU CAN BUILD A SOLID FRAME TO YOUR HOUSE. HERE IS WHERE YOU BUILD THOSE ELEMENTS THAT PROTECT YOUR PRODUCT (OR BRAND).

Workshop 4

Food Cost

Did you know that the average restaurant is missing 9% of potential profits from mismanaged food costs? In this workshop, you will finally get control of your food and beverage costing. 

Workshop 5

Menu Design & Profit

Your menu is your #1 marketing and profitability tool, yet most do not give it the respect it deserves. In this workshop, we are going to fine-tune your menu to become an ATM for your restaurant. 

Workshop 6

Effective Marketing

All restaurants post on social media, very few market. Even fewer have a solid plan that allows their brand to stand out. 

BONUS 2

Access to The Leadership Blueprint

Get inside access to my #1 leadership training program that was until now, only available to my private coaching clients. You can also have 3 other members of your team join for the 12-week program.

"We started working through The Restaurant Accelerator Coaching Program that Donald designed and within 2 months we started seeing amazing changes, the culture is defined, the concept and communication aligned, the team was motivated and sales are increasing!! We now have a plan and what’s better we have clarity on how to achieve it."
— Andres M. Cardona, Owner, Instinto Gastrobar

Phase Three - Process

THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN LIVE OR DIE. THE GOAL HERE IS TO WORK MORE ON YOUR RESTAURANT AND LESS IN YOUR RESTAURANT. WE'LL ALSO PUT MORE MONEY IN THE BANK AND BUILD YOU A SCALABLE STRATEGIC PLAN FOR WHATEVER YOUR GOALS ARE.

Workshop 7

Accountability Systems

All restaurants have a few checklists around that barely ever are used to their potential. Here we'll set you up with a proven system that gives you your time back and still keeps your team on track.  

Workshop 8

Strategic Planning

Without a clear plan and the action steps to implement you will just spin your wheels month after month and never grow. We'll break your planning down into quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily formats.

Workshop 9

Profitability

Now that you have the 90% of the formula in place it's time to close the gap on the final 10% and that is how to maximize your P&L for more profits.

BONUS 3

Access to Restaurant Masterminds

This is my elite mastermind group where like-minded restaurant owners share experiences and learn from each other. The power of a mastermind group adds to your learning curve and accountability

"While I am a seasoned owner and I am confident in my skills, I can still get caught up in the operation and lose sight of the big picture. Donald has really helped me see the big picture and prioritize what I need to do to thrive and not just survive."
— Myra Ghattas, Owner, Sixty-Six Acres & Slate Street Cafe

Meet Donald Burns, The Restaurant Coach™

I’ve been where you are. My first restaurant almost closed six months after opening. I struggled and had too much pride to admit that I needed help. You see, I knew how to run a restaurant. I did not know how to build a business. I met a successful businessman who became my mentor and showed me the steps to build a brand and a profitable business! Many of those lesson he taught me I still use today! 

Today, I work with serious independent restaurants that want a clear path to build their brand, strengthen their team, and increase their profits (without sacrificing their life to their business). I have unlocked the combination to long term restaurant success. Allow me to show you the path to getting it all.
