“During my book tour, restaurant operators kept asking for an educational program to train their own people to use my Recipes for Restaurateurs book and learn about local store marketing,” said Duke. “That’s when we developed LSM-U, Local Store Marketing University.” In 2011, LSM-U was offered as an educational certification workshop across the country at several state restaurant associations including California, Texas and Florida. Now, six years later, thousands have earned their LSM-U certificate and the popular training program is offered to restaurant chain operators with proven results. Watch the new LSM-U video here!

LSM-U, Local Store Marketing University™, is a four hour jam packed educational program devised to enhance operator-marketers’ ability to understand, create and implement local store marketing strategies to increase sales and awareness in their 3-5 mile radius. Created in 2011, LSM-U is offered as an educational seminar. A companion workshop, The LSM Diet™, is an additional two hours, for attendees to create their own 52 week local store marketing plan. Please visit the new LSM-U website which includes new client accolades and a video overview.
