We began to hear a lot of “excuses” from all levels of our company around Millennials. We even started a culture where if you used the world Millennial it was a negative reference about someone. After working with Kristen and implementing some of her recommendations we’ve seen great results. Initially, we were ranked 23 out of 24 for larger operators on Speed of Service and on an Overall Scorecard. Last month we were #1 in the nation in SOS and top #5 in the national overall!
