Reopening is just the start.

It looks like you’ve made it through the pandemic.

Sales are skyrocketing, and more government money is on its way.

It almost feels like you're hitting a post pandemic stride...

What’s next?

There's an old bumper sticker that used to appear on cars in TX after a downturn –
“Lord, grant me one more oil boom and I promise not to screw it up.”

If you're a multi-unit restaurant owner, this is your boom.
Guests are returning more excited than ever.
And competition has thinned out.

You learned to operate at a high level when the pandemic started. To take advantage of the coming boom, there’s no time to relax, you must operate at an even higher level.

The sooner you take action, the greater your chances are of dominating your segment.

The goal isn’t just more business. You can muscle that on your own.

The goal is growing your business exponentially while creating personal flexibility for yourself and your family, right?

That is the proverbial “next level” of your business and life. And now is the time to start.

Which should sound like a nice change of pace after what you’ve just been through.

One year ago, I wrote that the post pandemic period would be an opportunity of a lifetime for restaurateurs.

Now we’re here.

Guests have changed, employees have changed, and the restaurant industry has transformed more in the past year than it ever has.

To succeed, you must not only understand the trends, but stay ahead of them.

And every aspect of your business; menu, service, branding, marketing, operations, unit and multi-unit management, and admin team must be more effective than ever.

When you do this right, you take full advantage of the once in a lifetime opportunities ahead of you.

This is no time to go it alone.

Hi! I'm Matthew Mabel.

For the last 30 years, I’ve been passionately focused on one thing: Helping multi- unit restaurant owners grow their businesses to new levels of profitability and personal freedom than they ever thought possible.

I've been through five downturns, and after each one, I see operators who forget the very lessons they just learned as soon as things got better.

Of course that's not you, right? Not this time.

I'm determined to help as many independent multi-unit operators as possible take advantage of the coming restaurant boom.

I know the coming years are a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I’ve helped owners grow from 5 to 22 units, experience record revenue and profit, and set up their business to allow them to use their vacation home as much as their primary residence.

You must stay ahead of the trends

Restaurant Owners Success Club gives owners unique access to industry leading expertise and other high-powered restaurateurs in a relaxed, confidential format.

You won’t be alone.

Throughout this program, owners will learn how to take their businesses from incremental to exponential growth by fully harnessing these new trends and opportunities.

And you'll be surrounded by other high-performing restaurateurs that don't take themselves too seriously, so you know we'll have fun doing it. 

I organized the program into three key themes with specific topics we'll cover under each one:


  • Embrace & harness the new competitive landscape for exponential growth
  • Master operations (even better than before the crisis)
  • Understand and adapt to new guest and employee behavior 
  • Outshine competitive brands in your segment


  • Take your business to the next level - whatever that means to you.
  • Grow revenue and profits of existing units
  • Expand existing units and add new units
  • Build the value of your brand and net worth, your ultimate achievement

Enjoy Freedom

  • Shift from a reactionary pandemic mindset to proactive and predictive 
  • Learn to create a schedule that fits your lifestyle and stay committed to it
  • Don’t wait until you sell or retire to do the things you want

Common Questions

What if I can't make the session?

Recordings will be available to all members in the group, and you’ll still have unlimited email access to Matthew to ask questions.

What if I start late? Will you prorate the fee?

You can join a group late if you wish, but the fee is the same.

My restaurant company has multiple owners. Will a single membership give each of us access?

Membership is per owner — not per restaurant company. Each owner will need to register and pay separately. 

What is the refund policy?

If we cannot place you in a group for any reason, we will refund your fee. Otherwise, fees are non-refundable, but you can choose not to renew your membership at the end of the quarter.

If there’s a price increase in membership, will I be charged extra?

No. The price you paid is locked in for you until the point that you cancel. We look after our long-standing members.
