“…Harris Eckstut is outstanding. He is the most knowledgeable restaurant consultant that I have met in my career in Philadelphia. His lecture was a tour de force. In a low key fashion, he covered a great amount of information….”

“The information you gave us was beyond useful! We now have a more realistic perspective about the restaurant business.”

Greg Vernick, Chef/Owner, Vernick Food & Drink in Philadelphia:

“Vernick Food & Drink would not be as successful without the help of Harris Eckstut.”

“Harris took us by the hand and taught us all the things about the restaurant business that we didn’t even know we didn’t know! Because of him, we are still in business and now thriving instead of floundering.”
