After his success and having to look outside the industry for answers, he started Bar Restaurant Success and launched his first book titled “The Bar Restaurant Owner’s Guide To Doubling Your Profits & Loyal Regulars In Any Economy” so he could provide the answers owners are looking for - How to get new customers in the door without wasting marketing dollars!
