Jon Taffer's Compeat Quote

Jon knows a tavern is a key place where people gather to eat, drink and share stories that date back to the times of ancient Rome. Taverns are known as a gathering place and a landmark that are a beacon of camaraderie for their communities. And Taffer’s Tavern is the quintessential pub, a place to gather with your old friends and make new ones along the way. With the ice-cold beers, outstanding signature cocktails, and mouth-watering savory food, it will keep customers coming back week after week.  

Compeat began their relationship with Taffer when he was hired as a keynote speaker at Compeat’s Customer User Conference 2019 enlightening over 700 Compeat customers on his infamous “no excuses” mentality for restaurant operations superiority. Taffer was the highest ranking speaker in the 16 year history of Compeat User Conferences.

The first Taffer’s Tavern’s location is opening in Alpharetta, Georgia in Fall 2020 with locations opening in Boston and Washington, D.C. expected to open in 2021. Taffer has partnered with Fransmart as the exclusive franchise development partner for Taffer's Tavern to facilitate the national rollout of the emerging brand.
