What is Restaurantology?

The journey for operators with 2-20 units is a tough one. Where do you turn? Who do you talk to for advice when you are not like the “big guys”?

Restaurntology is a destination for industry advice, best practices, tips and tricks, and a host of other helpful restaurant owner content — it is also Savory Fund’s annual conferences where industry leaders gather to discuss restaurant trends. We’re focused on the questions small restaurant owners are facing and are here to offer solutions, how-tos, tips and tricks for anyone voyaging in the restaurant world. As we like to say, a rising tide lifts all boats. – and we want everyone to win.
