Testimonials - Restaurant & Food Service Clients


“Jeff is a no-nonsense, get-things-done person. He brings energy, creativity and passion to every project. He can be effective in helping drive retail sales for any organization."

Russ Umphenour, CEO,
Focus Brands




“I attended Jeff's seminar in Atlanta, GA in 2007 while I was a group general manager for a 22 store restaurant company that operated franchises of : Fuddruckers, Caribou Coffee, Marble Slab Creamery and the Great American Cookie Company, I later ran Applebee's in Dubai as VP of Operations. I used Jeff's book and tactics on guerrilla neighbourhood marketing & I was able to drive comp sales at Applebee's restaurants by +13.5% during the 2008 worldwide recession. Jeff helped us achieve success despite our limited marketing budget. Jeff is a marketing genius."

 Marvin Alballi, President,
Franchise Global Brands



"I had the privilege of working with Jeff when I hired the street fighting team to assist Moe's Southwest Grill, a 430-unit fast-casual restaurant chain. Jeff's innovative approach to LSM and local marketing tactics specifically designed for an individual location (or market) was incredibly creative, fun to execute, extremely targeted and highly-impactful. More than that, Jeff was a pleasure to work with, developed a great relationship with our franchisees and restaurants and held detailed weekly calls to ensure that all questions were answered and everyone stayed on track. He became a valued member of my team and executed the program in a completely turnkey manner. I'd highly recommend Jeff, either for a marketing position within a company or as a consultant in his role as "street fighter."
