This is the annual conference for my Restaurant Masterminds Group. It comes with a 90-day strategic plan FOR YOU so you can get traction, the support you need, and the restaurant you want!
You don’t need another checklist.
You don’t need another piece of software (that requires a degree from MIT to use).
You don’t need another webinar with no follow-up plan.
Listen, you’ve spent thousands of dollars on traveling, attending workshops and seminars at food expos. You get some great ideas and then when you get back to your restaurant you drop the ball and don't implement. Why?
NO ONE IS GIVING YOU THE REAL, STEP-BY-STEP BLUEPRINT TO RESTAURANT SUCCESS…UNTIL NOW.
Enough is enough!
You don’t need to go back to the information overload buffet.
What you need is the EXACT opposite of everything you’ve tried in the past.
In fact, there are three steps to get in the fast lane to building your brand, strengthening your team, and increasing your profits.
Step #1: This event will sell out so save your seat now before you miss out. You'll get some preliminary conference workbooks to go through so when you hit the conference you are ready to rock-n-roll
That leads up to Step #2.
Step #2: Attend The Restaurant Success Summit™ October 25-27, 2021 in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is our annual event where 50 high-achievers like yourself get together for 3-Days (a total of 24 Hours) of immersed education with world-class industry experts (each one hand-picked by myself for the specific knowledge they have).
This brings us to Step #3.
Step #3: Implement the customized plan you received at The Restaurant Success Summit™. This time you'll have the power of the mastermind group to overcome challenges or sticking points you will encounter.
INCREASE your restaurant’s growth 30-100% in the next year while working less so that your family will finally be proud of all those long hours you worked and sacrifices you made.
GROW your social media impact and influence faster than ever, learn how to become a marketing freak, and dominate the competition.
UNCOVER hidden profit centers in your restaurant's P&L so you can achieve financial freedom, take vacations, and get the things you’ve always wanted.
GET the most cutting edge culture-creating tools, marketing, brand-building tactics, and game-changing strategies that are working NOW to drive restaurants to massive profits so that you can deploy them in your business.
BECOME the leader you know you can be so you can guide your team to record profits, have massive impact in their lives and in your community — you can finally earn the recognition you deserve.
DISCOVER a better way, a faster way — and a simpler way — to achieve success rather than trying to “grind & hustle” your way to the top so you can leave the constant stress and uncontrollable late night anxiety attacks behind.
RISE above and leave behind the competition, becoming the ONE and ONLY option for your guests that become loyal because of the next-level service and hospitality that only your team can deliver.
ADOPT the mindset, habits, and persistence of Navy SEALs and USAF Pararescuemen (the world’s most disciplined and productive special operations teams) so that you never, EVER take the easy way out again and feel guilty that you are not living up to your full potential.
LEARN the EXACT step-by-step Restaurant Masterminds™ Framework to10X your potential and build unstoppable momentum for growth, profits, and a sustainable business.
LEAVE behind all of your excuses, worries, irrational fears, and frustrations because — with the accountability of your mastermind group beside you — your restaurant will finally start to become the way you envisioned as you put this new-found fuel on your fire.
NEVER think small again…never be held back by naysayers…never get taken prisoner by renegade employees with bad attitudes…never give in, never give up, and never quit on your hopes and dreams.
FEEL more alive and better prepared than you have ever felt in your life…more assured that success is inevitable...more connected to the world’s best restaurant experts and the infinite source of power they hold.
So, if you’re ready to…
- Finally become massively successful with your restaurant and career…
- Finally buy back your time and start living life on your own terms…
- Stop working so much and start enjoying the perks of being a true leader…
Then you absolutely, positively cannot miss the opportunity to join Restaurant Masterminds™.
WARNING: You will NOT experience the power of The Restaurant Success Summit "via a live stream." The recordings are only available for attendees. You've got to be there to get the real benefits...
The VIP roundtables will not be recorded…the 7-figure conversations held by the pool will not be repeated…the life-changing one-liners from our top speakers will not leave the room…
If you are not in the room this fall, you will not get the fast-track blueprint to getting the restaurant (or life) you want. PERIOD.
On the first day of The Restaurant Success Summit™, you will be seated with fellow attendees in your niche so we can target your specific challenges and opportunities.
You will be given a pre-event survey that tells us exactly where your restaurant is NOW, so we can develop the recipe and path YOU need to reach your next breakthrough.
Plus, you’ll network with the future leaders of your industry who will be seated right beside you.
Remember: the value of the conference is discovering what you KNOW deep down you need to do. Then having accountability support to do it!
That way, you don’t fall into the 90% who quit simply because they don’t know where to start.
Instead, you’ll carry that momentum home and turn it into real, transformative ACTION.
Listen, here’s the deal. I have hundreds of thousands of listeners of The Restaurant Coach™ Podcast, readers of my blog posts and books…and people have been asking if I can bring together the BEST restaurant experts on the planet to speak at one event. Some wanted me to make this one of those BizConPalooza’s with a couple thousand people in the audience.
I am NOT going to do it.
Instead, I don’t plan on selling a lot of tickets.
In fact, I’ve decided to make this an exclusive, small event and limit it to only 50 SERIOUS RESTAURANT OWNERS/OPERATORS ONLY and 30 of those seats are for members of my elite group called Restaurant Masterminds™!!
That way I make sure you get hands-on access and customized advice for YOUR restaurant…and that can’t happen when attendees are herded into the event like cattle and then shuffled to different rooms trying to pick and choose which workshop to attend.
I'm keeping it intimate…not generic.
I'm keeping it limited…not overexposed.
I'm keeping it practical…not fluffy.
I'm keeping it NO BS…just jam-packed with content.
Because I wished someone had done this for me when I was taking my restaurants to the next level.
You will get time with the speakers.
You will get a chance to have your questions heard — and answered.
You will do the life-changing work that will set you on the path to market domination.
You will lay the foundation for your brand's growth and generating profits.
But only if you’re one of the few that secures a seat in the room.
And so, my friend, that is why this event is going to sell out fast. And since this is the ONLY ONE I hold this year, I don’t suggest that you procrastinate or make excuses for missing this.
Remember my favorite saying is: When would NOW be a good time?
"I believe that you really are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with so the fact I get to attend the Restaurant Success Summit™ with other like-minded high performers and mastermind is solid gold! Donald Burns has put something together that I think will be truly special that provides support, accountability, and will help me get on track and stay on track with where I want my business to go!"
"Attending The Restaurant Success Summit™️ was a no brainer as it will give me the opportunity to see the whole picture: menu design, marketing, branding, strategy, and how to build a kick-ass operation. This for me, is like getting my Ph.D. in leadership with the best coach in the world, Donald Burns!"
"We are definitely looking forward to attending The Restaurant Success Summit in Tucson. Donald Burns is a legend in the industry and has already provided us with invaluable advice for growing our business. With his counseling, we have built our brand, strengthened our team, and created a world class culture & mindset. We’ve seen Donald present numerous times in the region, have read his book, worked with him on restaurant coaching, and still want more! Full immersion baby! Looking forward to it. "

Your 3-month membership includes bi-weekly group video conference calls that follow our foundational 90-day format to set your restaurant up for long-term success. You also get (1) premier ticket to our annual event - The Restaurant Success Summit™. This 3-day conference is an educational immersion experience with 10 world-class speakers and 24 hours of pure content. We follow the event with a customized 90-day Strategic Plan for you and your restaurant.
The Restaurant Success Summit™ is the annual conference for Restaurant Masterminds™. It's critical that you attend in person to get the most from your mastermind membership. You'll want the immersion experience of the workshops, plus you can network with other mastermind members in person and that is one of the benefits of this group.
Before you arrive at The Restaurant Success Summit you will be sent a detailed questionnaire that must be completed in order to get an action plan that is customized to you and your restaurant. Failure to complete the questionnaire will result in you getting a generic plan that has little chance of maximizing your results. You have do some work on your end to get the big rewards.
The home-base for the conference is Scottsdale, Arizona, famous for its panoramic views, amazing weather and amazing food scene. The event will be held at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, and we’ve secured a special room block for all of our attendees. You’ll get your unique reservation link once you’ve secured your ticket.
Planning these events along with catering, room size etc. is an arduous task, which is why if you can’t attend, you can transfer your ticket to the following year's event or someone else.
Yes. We will have a lunch buffet available for attendees. All attendees are invited to join the speakers at lunch and ask questions.
Business casual is always a safe bet. It is the desert, so the nights can become slightly cool. We plan on having a cocktail reception poolside each night.
We learn best when placed in an immersion environment. Learning at a workshop is no different. We actually took this learning theory from the master himself, Tony Robbins. His live events are notorious for going 12-16 hours each day. We didn’t want to go that extreme and yet we wanted to keep the schedule tight and jam packed to keep you in learning mode each day.
