service. systems. people.​

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.

Listen to my story here.



Harlan credits his success to his philosophy of surrounding himself with good people—giving them consistent systems to create a prosperous company culture. He finds it both rewarding and humbling to be in the position to mentor chefs and managers and lend a hand to others in the industry who are on the same path that he has been on and knows so well.

Though Harlan’s services are diverse, if you look closely, they are all connected. Not only will he help you know yourself better, he will help you know your brand better.  In turn your customers and employees will know you better.  Find out how Harlan Scott can help you.
