Franchise brand Toppers Pizza's Director of Social Media & PR Colleen Glendinning was featured in an article highlighting women leadership in the restaurant sector. She elaborated on her advice for women trying to make their way into the field.
"Be confident in your ideas. People will believe in your ideas if you believe in yourself. Learn how to think like an operator and understand the pressure points that a team faces when executing on those ideas, but don't just limit yourself to learning one discipline within the restaurant industry. Invest in learning all aspects of the businesses," said Glendinning to FastCasual.com. "Ask as many questions as you can on your way up and truly understand the ins-and-outs that every person within a restaurant system faces on a daily basis. Don't be afraid to try new things and learn from your failures. This is a very competitive business, so it's vital that you work hard. Those who hustle in the restaurant industry thrive."
