An international celebrity, highly sought-after hospitality industry guru, and creator, executive producer and star of Spike TV’s number-one show, Bar Rescue, most people know Jon Taffer as a larger-than-life television personality who takes a no-holds-barred approach to helping hotels, restaurants and bars reach their full potential. What most might not know, however, is that Taffer’s impressive industry experience dates back nearly four decades— and includes everything from consulting for hundreds of thousands of properties and Fortune 500 companies, to creating what industry experts call “the greatest nightclub in the world,” to changing the game of football for its fans, forever.

When Taffer isn’t in front of the camera on Bar Rescue, you can find him sharing his industry knowledge with audiences around the globe. He’s been featured in Forbes Magazine, Rolling Stone, Vice Magazine, Inked Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, Business Insider, Bar Business Magazine and The New York Times, among a number of other prominent international media outlets, and has appeared as a guest on shows ranging from Rachael Ray to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to Good Morning America.

Why Jon?

From hiring the right team, to increasing guest frequency, to growing new customer traffic, to branding your business, Jon covers everything business owners, executives and employees—in any industry—need to know to ensure a healthy, successful, prosperous operation.

Taffer is the Wall Street Journal Best-Selling author of Raise the Bar: An Action Based Method For Maximum Customer Reactions, his book which distills the secrets to running a successful enterprise with Reaction Management, a strategy and philosophy Taffer developed and uses in his business and on Bar Rescue.

Taffer now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he runs Taffer Virtual Teaching, his digital teaching platform, and Taffer Dynamics, his consulting firm. Over the years, he’s consulted for a range of well-known establishments, including: the NFL, Ritz-Carlton hotels, Hyatt hotels, Marriott hotels, Holiday Inn hotels, Sheraton hotels, Intercontinental Hotels, Peninsula Hotels, Fridays, BWW, Famous Dave’s Barbecue, Wolfgang Puck Express and N9NE Steakhouse at Palms Casino Resort.

Jon’s 30+ years of diverse and hands-on experience knows no industry borders—he’s turned business operations of all kinds into money-making machines, and he’s ready to do the same for yours.
