Business Visit | Chef's Shoppe Gourmet Kitchen Store
--
CEO students dove into the world of retail this morning with Nancy & Scott Schneider, Owners of Chef's Shoppe.
--
Not only is Chef’s Shoppe celebrating it’s 25th year in business, Nancy & Scott are veteran supports of CEO and have been investors, guest speakers and donors since the very beginning! Along with giving a history of the business, Nancy and Scott explored the following topics with our students:
--
🍿 Foot traffic and flow in a retail brick and mortar is everything!
🍿 You must become an expert in managing cash flow.
🍿 Understanding the market is paramount.
🍿 There is a psychology to shopping…understanding you customer, their needs, wants, and HOW they shop is just as important as WHAT you are selling.
🍿 Work environment is everything. You have to create a culture where employees feel valued.
--
Above all, Scott and Nancy firmly believe that life is a series of self-fulfilled prophecies. You have to set yourself up for success and have a positive mindset if you want success to become your reality.

Scott and Nancy, thank you for taking the time to welcome us to your shop again this year! We look forward to diving into these business principles with you even further when you visit us again in a few weeks!
