Training For REAL

Training For REAL

Training For REAL is a hospitality consulting company that believes in changing simple training into engaged-learning to reduce attrition and increase sales. REAL stands for relevant effective affordable learning. The Digital Sandbox KC project will help Training for REAL move forward with a cloud-based training platform that allows for broader reach and scale.

High attrition in the hospitality industry, combined with ineffective training and structure, lead to increase cost, lower revenue and smaller margins. Other emerging pain points are minimum wage and service included pricing.

  • Attrition – Industry Average 87% @ $500 per Front Of House (FOH) employee
  • Ineffective Training Program – Poor Leadership & Service/Lost Sales/Less Repeat Guests
  • Increased Competition – Not many 2nd chances
  • 6 out of 10 restaurants close within the first three years

REAL addresses the industry pain points straight on by filling the gap between the status quo that has been in place for decades and the astronomically expensive customized program that may or may not be digital. REAL’s Cloud-based Training Platform allows for the delivery of a consistent product, message and culture.

REAL uses adult learning methods and questions based on clinical insights to create what we call 360º testing – full circle understanding.  The company also tracks results that have been tied into the restaurant’s point of sale system to monitor and measure.  This allows for accurate and quick analysis to drive performance and profitability.

“Digital Sandbox KC has connected me with amazing people that provide the ‘honest support’ an entrepreneur needs,” said founder Tonya Round. “The funding will allow for a vision to be turned into a REALity.”
