We consulted him prior and during the opening of our Jamaican food truck and followed all his instructions concerning purchasing, taxes, POS system, marketing, employee selection, etc. Today, we are happy with the results. It is now three months since we opened, revenue has increased dramatically, and continues to do so. Within the next year we want to expand into a brick and mortar restaurant and Dr. Dario will definitely continue to be our consultan.
I was looking to go to college, but did not know what I wanted for my future-what major to take or whether going to college was the best way forward for me. A friend of mine told about this company. I contacted them and got the academic advice I needed. The consultants were very helpful and professional. If it were not for them, I am not sure what my life would be like today. I am happy with the service I received. I would recommend that business to anyone because the consultants were caring, very professional, and willing to help.
