Harlan has been in the hospitality community for almost 20 years and played a leading role in 8 restaurant openings and several re-conceptings. In the past years he has guided the growth of restaurants that not only survived but thrived into several unique locations by creating systems and finding the right people. What he loves more than anything is helping people make their dreams profitable and scalable, simultaneously improving quality of life for the owner and the employee. This is why he started Harlan Scott Hospitality.
