About the Brand
Cornbread Consulting Firm started out of the burning desire to equip small to medium size businesses with the tools the big brands use to increase profitability and market share. Our founder started in the restaurant business over 20 years ago serving in various roles up to Director of Operations.
During a recession he owned a full service restaurant that needed help navigating the troubled time and there were none in the market. He finally found one hour away but after further discussion they wanted a huge retainer he simply couldn’t afford. After having to close down that establishment, the founder went back to corporate America.
Not feeling satisfied in the role he remembered the time he owned his own restaurant and needed that consultant. In that moment, he decided to be that person and start that business. Cornbread Consulting Firm was born.
