Meet Todd Woods

Restaurant Success Expert

With over 20 years of experience as a business owner and multi-unit franchisee of (2) multi-million dollar companies, and Author of 2 books. Todd has experienced it all from struggling and near failure to massive success.

As a former Quick Service Restaurant owner himself he understands:

  • Tight cash flow,
  • The challenges of hiring the right people and keeping them
  • Dealing with problem employees
  • Vendor and Landlord relationships
  • Upset customers- turning them into “raving fans”
  • Growing pains
  • Business partner challenges
  • Accounting issues, internal theft, etc.

Through real life business experience, and making mistakes, Woods has overcome, and now shares with RESTAURANT OWNERS how to get their business working FOR them and not AGAINST them.

He is the co-author of Guerrilla Marketing for Franchisees, with Jay Conrad Levinson. Jay was the author of the best-selling marketing series in history with over 40 million Guerrilla books sold worldwide.

He also co-authored Service…Some People Just Don’t Get It with Trapper Woods. He has spent his entire career (over 20 yrs.) owning businesses, consulting, and speaking, on how to transform businesses from where they are to where they would like it to be.

Todd’s favorite and most successful business was as a multi-unit, franchise area developer where he managed 120+ employees in 5 locations with 3.4 million in revenues.

After several years of struggle, and near complete failure, he turned the 5 locations around and consistently grew them at an average of 12% year over year, while the company growth averaged 6.0%. Woods achieved this by mastering the art of Guerrilla Marketing. He ultimately sold them for over 3 million dollars.

“After hiring Todd Woods to come in to work with my marketing team, we were exclusively focused on our breakfast sales the end result is our breakfast sales are up over thirty to thirty-five percent. I may just win a trip to Aruba based on Todd’s work with our marketing team. So I am happy to say that it was a job well done. Thanks Todd.”

“I really like the power in the program and the simplicity of it. These are some great tools. At first I didn’t feel I’d be comfortable getting out and implementing the tools, but it took like talking to 2 people and I realized it’s actually fun! Dollar for dollar this is by far the best marketing I’ve ever used and I’m just scratching the surface of what’s in the course! I recommend Todd’s course for anyone. It’s straight forward, simple and most importantly…it works.”

“We used Todd’s services for 6 months of which he provided awesome direction in helping bring our franchisees together and understand better their potential as well as roles & responsibilities. This resulted in sales increases we haven’t seen for a long time as well as re-energizing
our franchisees. The money invested in bringing him in was more than worth it. I would highly recommend you use his services if you are looking for specific solutions or just general direction.” Brad Davis
