Infrastructure Engineer & Program Manager
“I had the opportunity to lead the Intel Dining operations in Oregon and during this time I had the opportunity to meet Ron Stewart. He took one of the lowest-performing cafes in our portfolio and took them to be #1 globally, year over year. I have met very few people who are able to build teams and set a strategy that is copied across geographies, and he was able to do it for the Bon Appetite at Intel.”
Ron consulted for the Tillamook Creamery for about four months. During that time, he elevated the restaurant menu making sure that our brand stayed relevant and true to our mission. His changes immediately increased sales and visitor satisfaction. He organized a farmer/owner dinner for 500 attendees – this was a first for the Tillamook Creamery. Ron coordinated, trained, and supported the staff through menu creation, ordering, preparing, and execution. Ron received great praise from the culinary team, company executives, and the farmer attendees.
During his consulting with the Tillamook Creamery, Ron was also able to elevate the safety and sanitation practices. Months later, these practices are still sustained because Ron was able to implement self-accountability, he showed the team why these practices were so important and was able to gain every employee’s buy in.
Ron also consulted cross-functionally with various other departments such as Marketing, Sales, and Research & Development. Ron served as a guest Chef for various VIP sales tours. He was charged with delivering Instagramable moments for social media influencers, and he served on think tanks as we explored and researched new products.
Every day we were able to work with Ron was inspiring. In my opinion, he is one of the best in his industry; he is both a teacher and a learner. Despite his impressive resume and top-notch skill set, Ron is one of the humblest Chefs I have ever had the pleasure working with.
