Who is Mike Hughes?
Starting my restaurant journey in 1979, my career path has led me to every conceivable Restaurant position there is. A kitchen and FOH career that spans almost 4 decades. The past 27 of those years I've been Management and 15 of those at the GM level. I have worked at 8 corporate concepts and endured (enjoyed) 8 MIT training programs over 3 states and dozens of properties. I will NEVER say I have done it all, seen it all or KNOW it all. None of us ever will. My goal is to share stories and discuss best practices in my Restaurant Blog. I also offer a consultation service that includes service evaluations and bar spotting. Let me see your business through the eyes of a guest, with a background of decades of identifying service and employee issues. And unlike most guests, I can evaluate and provide you with a road map to FIX your business.
IN THE WEEDS BLOG
If you take a minute and peruse my blog, you'll get twisted insights from my past 27 years managing restaurants. Over that time, I have filled my toolbox with some useful goodies and while some of it may not be new to you, it's all good, helpful and practical stuff. I am not reinventing the wheel here by any means. My background has taken me from $30,000 a week stores to units doing $70,000 a DAY. A lot of craziness can happen at that level you can be sure. If you found this blog and enjoyed it, share it with your industry friends.
Thanks for stopping by...Mike
