Savory Restaurant Fund Mission, Vision & Values

Sind die Ziele Ihres Unternehmens klar und können Sie sich mit diesen identifizieren?

Mission Statement

Savory will be known for its people, not necessarily its restaurants or food it sells, but for the great leaders, it creates to go on and create new opportunities for the next generation. Tens of thousands of jobs will be created, and generational wealth will be created through the millions of hours of work put into accomplishing our goals. We will have failures. And through those failures, we will vow to become stronger, not only in our resilience in challenging times but stronger as we unify together to get through the hard times. Those failures will make us great, individually and as a firm. Loyalty will be the foundation of this great company. Loyalty to the brand. Loyalty to the leadership. Loyalty to our investors and shareholders. And most importantly - loyalty to each other - no matter what the situation. We will stand together, on a horizontal leadership structure, and succeed together. Or we will not succeed at all.

Vision Statement

"I envision Savory owning and operating hundreds of restaurants across America while ranking among the best places to work in the nation. Savory will not only be known for its great brands but also for its people. We will build future leaders, honing their abilities and talents in a safe environment. Loyalty will be the foundation of this great company. We will be family –– the Savory family."
