“The Academy addresses how to run a restaurant like a business, focusing on systems and structures that are critical to success …

There are few tools that I would consider non-negotiable for entrepreneurs. But for anyone starting or running a restaurant, I would absolutely consider the Rockstar Academy one of those non-negotiables.

Brett P.

International Franchise Director

The Restaurant Academy sets restaurant owners on a course for success. Listen to what Brett Payne has to say.

We see you aspiring restaurateur

With all your dream-building aspirations

You’ve got everything mapped out.

You’ve got the vision.

You’ve got plans.

On paper.

Restaurant Success with Restaurant Rockstars Academy Training

What stands between you and making those dreams a reality are…

  • Complex rules and regulations
  • Overwhelming decisions
  • Confusing advice
  • And self-doubt

And what started with one simple question…

“How hard can it be to open a restaurant?”

…has quickly turned into…

“Wow, where do I even start?”

And some days you’re wondering whether you’re ACTUALLY cut out for it.

Training for new restaurant owners and staff

Ready to rock your dream AND profits?

Owning a restaurant can be a hard slog with long hours, a shrinking bottom line and an ever-growing list of question marks.

Finding you here sussing out your options can only mean 1 of 2 things:

  1. You’ve lived the slog and are here to FINALLY do something about it
  2. You’ve seen others struggle and don’t want to follow in their footsteps

No matter which camp you belong to…

We applaud you for taking the RIGHT step towards rocking YOUR restaurant―whether it’s still a dream or you’re already serving customers.

Restaurant Rockstars’ online courses for restaurant owners will set you up for success at every step of your restaurateur journey.

We’ve got the MBA so you don’t have to.

Training for new restaurant owners and staff

What if you could piggyback on an award-winning industry expert’s business lessons?

And finally take REAL action, avoid costly mistakes and turn those dreams into a smashing success.

Thankfully it IS possible to open and run a profitable restaurant without…

  • Years of industry experience
  • An MBA in your back pocket
  • A small fortune to start with

What you REALLY need is tried-and-tested expert advice that gives you next-level clarity, debunks the myths and cuts through the fluff in ALL aspects of owning a restaurant.

And the drive to make it happen, of course!

The Restaurant Rockstars Academy includes these self-paced online modules to help you map your rockstar journey

What if you had the strategies and tools to maximize your profits and run a wildly successful restaurant?

You could finally stop flying by the seat of your pants and grow your restaurant with next-level confidence.

Your restaurant might be busy, but that doesn’t mean you’re making as much as you could.

Have you ever wondered…

Maximize Restaurant Profits
Why you’re only making ‘this much’ when you’re booked out solid for weeks?
If there’s a smarter, more profitable way to price your menu?
How other restaurants are raking it in when you’re struggling to make payroll?
If you’re REALLY cut out to use the numbers behind your business to your advantage?

And that means you’re leaving the BIG financial decisions to chance simply because you don’t know where to start.

Thankfully you CAN be that restaurant owner who has confidence in EVERY decision you make.

Here’s the truth:

It’s not a select few who are BORN a numbers person.

Numbers smarts are within all of us.

Often it just takes one aha-moment to wake them up.

And once you tap into this superpower, you’ll finally start to…

  • Question things
  • Discover new efficiencies
  • Rock new, BIGGER profit margins

And you wish you’d fallen in love with the financial ins and outs that can make (or break) your business much sooner!

No, because implementing the learnings into your new or established restaurant business comes down to you and your individual circumstances.
