Robert A. Benson, Manager of Restaurant Operations at KROST, was recently featured on the Tastemaker’s podcast. The show was recorded while our team was at the National Restaurant Association Show with our partners from Restaurant365 earlier this summer. During the episode, Robert talks about his experience in the restaurant industry and the journey that lead him to KROST. He also explores why focused efforts on restaurant operations can be a game changer for fine dining and quick service restaurants and chains and how he saw that first-hand.

As Manager of Restaurant Operations, Robert helps restauranteurs realize the potential found through improved operations. He developed KROST’s signature Restaurant Site Audit, which provides a detailed operational and financial practices review that helps restaurateurs identify and prevent potential fraud, theft, and loss. Robert and his team provide a thorough inspection of a restaurant’s operation and current employee practices and then compile a comprehensive, actionable report. By following the guidance provided in the report, restaurants are able to improve their bottom line.
