Testimonials

Greg Vernick, Vernick Food & Drink:

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


Connie Correia, The Pop Shop, Collingswood, NJ

“Despite glowing reviews, a full house, and an experienced staff, we were failing. If we had not hired Harris Eckstut when we did, I am sure we would have had to close our doors permanently. 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!”


Patricia Blakely, The Merchants Fund – a Philadelphia non-profit that provides grants to small independent Philadelphia retail businesses for growth, development, and/or stability.

“Harris visited a local family restaurant on behalf of The Merchants Fund as a consultant. He knew the restaurant well over its many productive years. He helped the family create a succession plan so that the parents could retire and the son could step up to the plate. Part family therapist, and part restaurant consultant, he understood the delicate balance when dealing with family and business. Retaining and restoring a restaurant on one of the commercial corridors in Philadelphia is always a priority for TMF and Harris understood our commitment.”


Alan Armstrong, Long-time Greater Philadelphia area restaurateur,

“…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….”


Montgomery County Community College Class Attender:

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