jaime-oikle-and-family-250x175I helped build a restaurant website in 1996!

Yes, 1996 -- those certainly were the baby days for the web...

And I've owned or been involved with online restaurant content sites for 18+ years now!

What continues to be my "reason for being" is helping restaurant owners succeed and thrive!

I'm passionate about bringing as many resources as possible to our readers and members that will help them on the journey of success.

I know the restaurant business is not an easy one -- perhaps the toughest industry out there... Yet there are so many folks doing so many wonderful things to bring great dining experience to our cities and neighborhoods -- and so I'll continue to do everything I can to support that incredible mission.

All the best for your restaurant success!
