Restaurant Leadership Conference – 20 years of leadership

Restaurant Leadership Conference – 20 years of leadership

Great relationships are the key to growth and long-term success.  For the restaurant industry, the premier event for twenty years is the Restaurant Leadership Conference, held annually in Phoenix. It is where new relationships are started and old ones are fostered. Many people come back year after year, knowing that the content and the connections that they receive in those 4 short days are worth the investment of time spent away from the office.

What You’ll Find

I’ve been attending as a sponsor for 15 years and I’ve found that the quality of interactions can’t be found anywhere else. We get to interact with high-level multi-unit and multi-concept operators who are looking for high growth ideas from new vendor partnerships. These operators want to help their businesses grow and out-maneuver the competition.

While You’re There

Face to face time is critical in the current business environment. Getting to know someone personally helps us get to trust that much quicker. Digital marketing and all the content strategies cannot take the place of spending time together with the people we are trying to reach. A familiar face and shared history work in our favor as we pitch ideas and form relationship bonds. We’ve become invested in the industry that provides their livelihood. And it’s an exciting industry with constant change and new challenges around every corner. It forces us to be better and continually improve to meet that expectation.

Our Past Takeaways

Over the years we have developed working relationships with many household name brands from our time together at the RLC. This year is their 20th anniversary. During the keynotes, we’ve heard from former presidents, best-selling authors, and world-class athletes, and consequently, the conference attendance has multiplied based on the content caliber. It is now a large conference feel but it still provides the time and space to get to know others and hear about the problems they are trying to solve. You just can’t get that from any other marketing channel.   I hope to see you in Phoenix soon. Please stop by our table and pick up your conference shirt.

Recipient of Pancheros Vendor of the Year

Recipient of Pancheros Vendor of the Year

Everyone wants to be a winner, and when the prize comes from helping your client win, the winning is that much sweeter. At this years International Franchise Association’s annual conference, Righteous was awarded Pancheros Vendor of the Year by Pancheros Mexican Grill, a fast casual chain based in Iowa.

Our Partnership

Over the past six years we have worked with Pancheros on their company uniforms, limited time offer (LTO) gear, retail merchandise, and corporate identity apparel.We have enjoyed collaborating with the Pancheros’ team to help them strengthen their brand voice andgain new fans and repeat customers through creative and fun projects

For their participation in the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) we created team rider bike jerseys and fun fan giveaways. This event attracts riders from across the United States providing Pancheros an opportunity to increase their brand exposure and have some fun doing it. 

Core Values

Pancheros has been on a strong growth trend, expanding into new territories and regions as they spread awesome Mexican food to the Midwest of America. They believe in doing things differently, with an emphasis on quality and not relying on the status quo. Rodney Anderson, Pancheros Founder and CEO is quoted as saying, 

You can think you know everything about your brand or your product, but then you can ask key customers and they’ll touch on changes they might like to see. If you can perfect those changes, and realize you might not know it all, it’ll separate your brand from the others.

Rodney Anderson, CEO

We tend to agree with that sentiment. As good as you are one day is only valuable when you can consistently deliver on your brand promise every day. Our team is always looking for ways to improve and learn from the past, whether successes or failures. It requires a bit of humility to acknowledge, like Rodney, that you might not know it all. We share the same goal, we want to separate our brand from others by consistently offering excellent service and making continual improvements so our customers have the best opportunity to grow.

It feels good to be recognized by a long-term customer for our innovative services and products. But, tomorrow is another day to prove ourselves all over again.
