With the Restaurant Finance & Development Conference coming up next month in Las Vegas, we wanted to produce a podcast with a restaurant industry expert. The first name to come to mind was long-time industry expert Tim Pulido.
Tim began his career in brand marketing, moving up quickly to general management and concept leadership in the restaurant space. He spent 20 years at PepsiCo, then McDonalds, and several other notable chains. Tim presently is the Strategic Operating Partner with Corlex Capital, a private equity firm investing in the restaurant sector.
Tim spoke to us about the state of the restaurant industry and the industry’s challenge to create real customer traffic growth. His insight and opinions on everything from reasons for the sector’s decline to his five point action plan for excellence to his thoughts and suggestions around third party delivery should be heard by anyone seriously involved in the industry.
