WHY DO I NEED THIS PROGRAM?
I am constantly amazed at how many different restaurants I visit in different cities across the country where the servers are what I call “Order Takers”. They take my order, deliver the food and bring the check, but Don’t Go Out of their Way to Deliver an Unforgettable Dining Experience. I’m not knowledgeable of their restaurant and would have spent more money and taken their suggestions if they had taken the initiative to tell me “What’s Special” that I might enjoy! More than likely you have “Order Takers” working for you. Can you afford to keep them?
HOW CAN I EFFECTIVELY APPLY WHAT I LEARN IN THIS PROGRAM?
Training is the essential cornerstone of any restaurant and many restaurants simply don’t have the time or just don’t train their service staff on both Service & Sales. These restaurants leave significant dollars on the table every shift every month of the year. Worst of all, Restaurateurs can’t be sure of the sometimes damaging things servers can and do say to customers. Sales Stars is designed to comprehensively Train both Floor Managers and Staff in Key-Concepts to 1) deliver a superior guest experience 2) make more money for both the server and the restaurant and 3) Compel customers to Return & Spread the word of your restaurant!.. a WIN WIN for all! It includes a 1 hour+ Training Video on the Key-“SALES STARS” Concepts, then supplies a series of Proven Training Exercises for use in Pre-Shift and Server Training Meetings to condition the staff. If the concepts and exercises are embraced and routinely practiced, Check averages are guaranteed to Rise, while the Guest Experience is enhanced.
EVERYONE IS A CONSULTANT THESE DAYS, WHY IS THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER PROGRAM OUT THERE?
I have been to several programs, which claim similar benefits to what I am offering and have been completely surprised and disappointed at the true “Lack of Content” and Practical Information, offered. I have developed and refined SALES STARS for the past 17 years and it contains literally everything I have learned about providing a Superior Guest Experience and Making MORE MONEY for your restaurant. I Believe whole-heartedly in SALES STARS and personally Guarantee it. If you understand and execute the concepts provided, it will work for you!
WHY IS THIS PROGRAM CONSIDERED A “SOFT-SELL” APPROACH?
SUGGESTIVE SELLING is considered BETTER SERVICE. Think of it this way: Many of your guests may be 1st time customers with no prior knowledge or experience of your restaurant and more than likely they are looking for a well deserved night out and not just food & drink. If your Service Staff, as EXPERTS of “What’s Great About Your Restaurant, provide Knowledgeable and Fun Suggestions on what they think your guests will enjoy, your customers will have a positive memorable experience with your staff to THANK! If you’re staff are not making suggestions your guests will enjoy, you are doing your customers a “Dis-service”!
WHAT WILL MY STAFF THINK OF THIS PROGRAM?
If you hire fun people who care about every guest’s experience and want to make good money, they will embrace SALES STARS. It fosters Teamwork, Cooperation & a Competitive Spirit amongst your staff. Once they provide their 1st SALES STARS Experience that truly makes a difference in a guest’s night out, they’ll be hooked on being your Best Brand Ambassador. Many of my SALES STARS have returned to my “Seasonal” restaurant for 10, 12 and even 15 years.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES THIS PROGRAM REQUIRE?
SALES STARS is broken into a series of 3 Modules, which can be watched individually for more emphasis, or in its entirety in little more than an hour. There is a Group Module, which explains the Basics of SALES STARS to the entire Service Team, as well as individual Modules for Servers, Hosts & Bus staff. Once the basic concepts are understood, a Manager should consistently use 1 or more of the Proven Training Exercises from Module 4 in Daily Pre-Shift Meetings and several of the exercises in more formal Training Sessions, so that the concepts become consistent conditioned behavior by your entire Service Staff. The Training Exercises provide the reinforcement to create SALES STARS MAGIC on your dining room floor!

HOW CAN YOU CLAIM A RETURN ON MY INVESTMENT IN AS LITTLE AS 1 NIGHT?
The difference between what an “Order Taker” rings for an average check versus a well-trained SALES STAR can be $50-$60 dollars or more per table (See SLIDE #48 in the SALES STARS PROGRAM – Check Averages Compared). Multiply this times the number of tables per night served and well… do the math!
