Sometimes as a business owner, or manager, or employee, you just feel stuck. Things are operating enough to keep the lights on and doors open, but you're barely surviving. There are things you wish you could change, but you just don't have the time, money, or energy to do it.

What if that all could change, and you could finally get ahead and start WINNING in business?

That is exactly why we are putting on the inaugural GRITT Summit, powered by PFSbrands. 

PFSbrands founder and CEO, Shawn Burcham, just published a book endorsed by Forbes, Keeping Score with GRITT: Straight Talk Strategies for Success. In it, he reveals the systems he used to propel PFSbrands into a national success with double-digit growth for over twenty years. Now, PFSbrands, alongside GRITT Business Coaching, wants to build on that knowledge and launch a 3-day Summit for anyone - not just those in foodservice - to learn concrete ways to succeed both in business and in life.

GRITT Summit
September 24 - 26, 2019 | St. Louis, MO
Ameristar Casino Resort Spa
1 Ameristar Blvd., St. Charles, MO 63301


GRITT Summit is for the CEO, the small-business owner, the manager, or the employee who wants to achieve more and is ready to dig deep and find out just how far they can go! Find out what G.R.I.T.T. really means and how these strategies will completely transform your business, put you on the scoreboard – AND START WINNING!

There will be 27 breakout sessions, several keynotes, networking opportunities, booths and meeting rooms for 1:1 conversations, plus fun events!

WARNING: Be prepared for STRAIGHT TALK at its best, and for those eye-opening moments when you realize everything you thought you knew about business is not what is going to get you to the top.


There are three different tracks to choose from: Leadership Development and Employee Engagement, Business, and Foodservice.

Leadership Development & Employee Engagement

Sessions in this track will revolve around best practices in terms of hiring, leadership skills and employee engagement. You'll hear from CFO's, HR directors, sales staff, business/executive coaches, as well as a special session by Founder and Owner of Mosaic Creation, Jennifer Briggs.


In this track you'll discover topics on the basics of business, the power of digital media, financial education, understanding data, customer experience, open book management and owning your numbers. Experts in finance, marketing, data, customer experience, and business coaching will lead you through actionable ways to grow in your knowledge of best business practices.


Learn more about how foodservice can impact your business - or learn how to improve your existing program. Sessions will be led by foodservice experts covering a variety of topics, including: proven hospitality tactics, how to dominate your local market, profiting through technology, current food trends, training best practices, the power of retail incentives, operational execution best practices, and gaining loyal customers.


Each session will include hard action items you can leave with and implement right away! There will be numerous booths to visit for in-depth conversation on a variety of topics (marketing, technology, business coaching, and more), plus you can book 1:1 meetings with any expert to get customized advice that's relevant to your business.

We know it may be hard to leave your business or invest the money to attend, but we truly believe we can help you overcome any business challenge you may face. Plus, if time away is your biggest concern, then we can help get you on a path where you can spend YOUR time on growing your business instead of the day-to-day tasks that employees could be doing.

GRITT Summit is powered by PFSbrands – whose core purpose is to help others become more successful in work and life. To be successful in work and in life, you need to have fun along the way, so we’re going to bring it!
