About Joey Restaurant Group:Like most of JOEY management, CEO Jeff Fuller started his remarkable journey flipping burgers, washing dishes and sweeping floors. It’s called paying your dues, learning from the ground up and understanding what success takes. “If there’s a secret,” he says, “it’s hard work, unwavering commitment to the customer and assembling the very best people.” Jeff absorbed valuable lessons from his family’s successful businesses before striking out on his own with a brand new concept in upscale casual restaurants. The first JOEY opened in 1992 and, as word spread, plans for a second location were quickly in the works. Today there are JOEY Restaurants across Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Seattle and California. Our model isn’t to repeat formulas but create spaces perfectly suited to the locale and its clientele. Each JOEY restaurant is unique, but they all have plenty in common: great food, lively environments, exceptional dining experiences.Essential Impact’s coaching initiative with JOEY Restaurant Group began in 2008 when they identified the need to develop leaders. The turnover rate was more than 200%, while a rapidly expanding market was projected to grow 30% over the next three years. Since putting the coaching program in place, JOEY Restaurant Group has been recognized for five consecutive years as one of Canada’s greatest places to work and received an International Coach Federation Global Prism award for excellence in coaching.Links and Resources:https://joeyrestaurants.com/https://essentialimpact.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Choice-Magazine-JOEY-ICF-Global-Prism-Award.pdf
