Brendan O'Leary

Hi! My name is Brendan O'Leary. I am the Founder of Chex Consulting. I have devoted all of my adult life (and most of my childhood) to restaurants. I am the son of restauranteurs and have seen the pains of owning and operating restaurants. After operating restaurants for years, I worked with dozens of other restaurants to help improve their bottom line. I now consult, train, coach and teach to help managers get started or veteran managers look at business differently.
