Meet Martha Looney, Owner, Professional Restaurant Coach and Speaker

Martha is an Operator and HR Professional with 27 years in the Retail and Restaurant Industry from “Head Dishwasher” to HR Manager to General Manager to Regional Director of Operations and every job in between.  

As a Restaurant Coach, Martha helps independent and local restaurateurs build establishments that run smoothly - without them running you.  She does it by showing her clients how to build human infrastructure.   This aids in learning how to get things done through others while growing people and the business.

Coaching is more than consulting.  It is a shoulder-to-shoulder, hands-on approach.

As a client, you and your team will benefit from Martha’s successful journey in both BOH and FOH operations with Copper Cellar Restaurant Group, Ruby Tuesday Restaurant Group, Brinker International, Total Wine & More and Starbucks Coffee Company.

Our Mission

In a world of constant change, the fundamentals are more important than ever. We help our clients build Restaurants that prosper over the long-term by partnering with our clients to develop and implement timeless fundamentals.

Our clients operate restaurants that succeed beyond the tenure of any single leader or owner.   They come to us with their vision, creativity and core-values. Together, we build an operation with an impenetrable foundation for success.

By building a values-based culture, your company itself becomes the ultimate product.   The continuity this brings will hold your restaurant together in the face of any change.   

Let us help you make your REstaurant positive!
