headshot of Harlan

With over two decades in hospitality, Harlan has played a leading role in over 20 restaurant openings and re-conceptings. Before founding his consultancy, as an operations manager he created a proven infrastructure and developed the individuals within it for his restaurants to not just survive but thrive in a crowded field, ultimately growing into multiple concepts and locations. More than anything he loves helping others make their dreams profitable and scalable while at the same time improving quality of life for the owner and the employee. This is why he founded Harlan Scott Hospitality.
