My name is Maxine Irvesire and I own a chain of restaurants throughout North America.
I started by restaurant career as a waitress and built an empire from the ground up. It was a struggle learning the ins and outs of the business on my own. There were many ups and downs on my journey to success. Back then, I didn’t have the options of hopping onto a computer and looking for guidance. It was trial by error and there was definitely a lot of error.
In order to help up and coming restaurant entrepreneurs, I’ve created this site with my team of experts to make your journey as smooth as possible. The restaurant business is extremely competitive and the sign of true success is the ability to teach and mentor others on their road to success.
Where Maxine’s Restaurant Journey Started
When I started my restaurant over 25 years ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had been a waitress my entire professional career and knew the restaurant industry inside and out, or so I thought.
I don’t think I fully grasped how competitive the restaurant business really was. The market was constantly evolving and restaurant entrepreneurs were dropping like flies. When I decided to start my own business and build a restaurant from scratch, I don’t think it dawned on me all the steps that were involved. I was so excited about building my menu and designing the layout of the restaurant that I didn’t think about all the necessary, behind the scenes steps that were involved.
