You’ve got to keep the long run in focus. We're lucky to consider Ron a friend and advisor. There are dozens of decisions that need to be made to build a business. Having Ron to bounce ideas off and ask advice of has been enormously helpful. He brings his very deep experience, making Clover a better competitor.
Demand exceeded the human capital, supply chain and physical plant. Ron and Keith were able to help us celebrate the powerful differentiation of Life Alive’s product and environment while providing resources to bolster the talent and capabilities of the leadership team. The experience Life Alive provides, and the mission that fuels it, became richer and vividly activated while the distractions and friction dissipated.
Though Cava was experiencing extraordinary success building an organization, a plan that allowed us to integrate the acquisition of Zoës—a public company—was a tall order. Act III challenged us to think differently about how the concept connects with the consumer and how to build organizational capabilities appropriate to the size we had become. Act III helped us to focus on customer experience and being a Better Competitive Alternative.
I started Tatte in my home kitchen, selling my creations at the farmers market. But I dreamt about building and growing a community around food. With 5 locations and big dreams, I joined the Act III family in hopes of making those dreams come true, and never looked back. I appreciate this unique and incredible opportunity to partner with someone who experienced a similar journey—from one store to an empire. The folks at Act III have a deep understanding of what it really takes—wisdom, long-term thinking, endless resources, sage advice. The level of thoughtfulness and support is part of the wonderful journey of Tatte and Act III.
