Renee Guilbault / Principal, Essayer Food Consulting

Global Food & Beverage / Fast Casual & High-Volume Ops

The recipe for multi-unit success is a combination of having the right plans + tools for impact + ruthless prioritization, and always keeping people & team development first.


I bring twenty-five years of experience across all elements of the food industry, with expertise in large scale, international, multi-unit, fresh food and beverage operations and menu/product development. (Ex-Pret A Manger, Le Pain Quotidien, Bon Appetit Management Co @ Google, Compass Group).


The purpose of this course is to share all of my learnings with you, so that you can skip all the "time wasting, wheel spinning" strategy question marks and move straight to applying a proven system that works.


If you are a multi-unit Operator or a food leader responsible for driving the performance of a high-volume, Multi-unit, high-Rev team, this Accelerator is for you.

Matt Delaney / COO / +150MM Fast Casual Operations / Restaurant Owner

Matt Delaney / COO / +150MM Fast Casual Operations / Restaurant Owner

The difference between a good restaurant leader and a great one is all about how they develop their team.

I have had a long career in the restaurant industry spanning 47 years (yikes!) working for many well-known concepts: Pizza Hut, Cosi, Chop’t Creative Salad Co., Le Pain Quotidien, Paris Baguette and Gregory's Coffee. These days, I am a full-time consultant with 3 restaurants of my own.


From Dishwashing to COO, and holding several senior leadership roles overseeing F & B, Supply Chain & Logistics, and Restaurant Operations, I know exactly what it takes to make leaders stand out and excel in a high-volume, multi-unit environment.


I am here to share everything I know to make you the best Operator you can be.
