Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

This is a REPEAT EPISODE!! One thing I'd like to do going into the future is to build on my pre-existing relationships. Who were some of our best guests? Where are they now? Let's get them back on the show and continue learning. Chris Schultz is absolutely one of those standout guests. Today, I'm bringing to you his original interview so you can get caught up because on Thursday we're bringing him back!

Here is a link to the original:

At the time of this interview, Chris Schultz had spent 15 years with the Starbucks Management and Leadership team before joining MOD Pizza, aka the MOD Squad in 2009. Then Chris helped MOD Pizza Scale from 1 location to 100 locations by 2016.  The driving force behind MOD has been their philosophy of putting their people first. Today Schultz holds the title of Senior Vice President of Operations.

In this episode we will discuss Team importance. Everyone on your team is equally important to getting the job done: no star players. Not worrying about who gets the credit and just focusing on getting the job done. You have to believe in your team. Culture-driven organizations. Failure is not an option. Growing big while remaining small. Move slowly. Make sure you have the confidence to go being before you try to grow. The customers need to want to go back to your restaurant. Customers need to feel comfortable. Being a part of a company that stands for more than just profits. Everyone deserves a second chance.

Calls to ACTION!!!
