As a restaurant consultant and coach, I am shocked by the number of bad menus out there. It’s so bad that there should be a recovery group started for restaurant owners who abuse menu design.

To help me sort out the good from the bad, I am happy to welcome Tom Kelley to the show! Tom is the president of AccessPoint Group a very  unique restaurant industry brand and innovation firm interested in one thing: growing their client’s profitability.

Tom has spent a career creating, promoting and building brands for restaurant companies, franchises, retail, emerging businesses, trade groups, and Fortune 500 companies.

Tom is a respected and recognized authority in the hospitality industry. He has served on the Board of Directors of the National Restaurant Association and on its senior management team. Tom writes frequently for major hospitality publications, such as Nation’s Restaurant News.

He has been quoted in regional business journals, major news dailies, Bloomberg and Business Week. Tom has even appeared on CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, where he discussed crisis management issues.

It’s part science and part art that creates a solid menu. Tom has helped 1000’s of restaurants develop menus that not only drive sales, they achieve cost goals and mostly leave a lasting impression on the guests.
