I’m Tony Penn and I’ve worked with over 127 different companies over the years to solve their growth, financial, people, and communication issues. From top-notch restaurant chains such as Buca di Beppo to House of Blues to small business owners, I focus on implementing change that serves up results.

I work with business owners to help create, develop and grow their business through coaching, consulting, and collaboration. I provide an outside perspective to move you away from just the “what” and focus on the “how.” 


“Standards should never be compromised.
How you maintain or exceed those standards is where the creativity comes in.”

Restaurants are getting crushed from all sides. To succeed today, you need a winning concept, flawless execution, motivated staff, extreme attention to the bottom line and insight from an expert.
I work closely with owners, managers and staff to CREATE a concept from an idea |  DEVELOP your dream into reality | GROW your reality to share with others.

With an eye for detail and experience in every aspect of the restaurant biz, I will help turn your restaurant into revenue…and profit.

Working with Tony has been so very helpful for me. His strategic process put clarity and purpose into my life both professionally and personally. He has a gift for listening to my challenges and needs and creating a guided path tailored to me and my career goals.

Tammy Popp Hill | Senior Social Worker, OC Social Service Agency

To put it mildly, my restaurant was in danger of failing miserably. Tony Penn stepped into a complicated business and difficult company culture and completely transformed it. From operations to financials to our people and culture, Tony worked miracles. Thanks to his help, we are not just surviving, we’re thriving – and we owe it to Tony and his team for making it happen.

Rick Silva | Owner, Silva’s Fresh Eatery

Tony is my guy. He was responsible for all my restaurant operations. Tony is truly the best at what he does. He’s insightful, creative, thorough, and everybody loves working with him. He’s the only person I’ve ever worked with that can create an environment where hard work can be so much fun. He has a unique combination of culinary skills, hands on experience, creativity and a realistic perspective that gets results.

Aarón Sanchez, Award-winning chef, cookbook author, Food Network Star, and judge on Masterchef

I wanted to launch a successful business but, like many entrepreneurs, I didn’t really know how. Tony helped me in so many different ways. Most importantly, working with PennUltimate Consulting gave me the courage and confidence I needed to actually take the risk. Tony has provided me with so many tools that help me with the organization and discipline I need to be successful in business. I can’t thank him enough.

Aslinn Dawson | Owner, Viva Vitality

As an attorney, I didn’t know if business coaching was right for me because I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur. But I’m here to say that Tony’s coaching is for everyone. Through his program, I’ve been able to look at being a litigation attorney in a completely different light. He taught me to recognize and utilize my greatest talents and focus my energy where it matters most. In my case, it was helping my clients avoid litigation by becoming more proactive in their business and implementing various systems to reduce the need. Thanks, Tony, for giving me the direction I needed.

Jonathan Gerber | Partner Miller, Miller & Gerber

As the owner of an established business, I was having difficulty with ‘growing pains,’ specifically in developing an effective, capable management team. We hired Tony to help and he didn’t just strengthen our management team – he had a tremendous effect on the productivity and overall morale of the company. Implementing his strategies, advice and training modules was a constructive and pleasant experience thanks to Tony’s direct yet humorous approach. He has the uncanny ability to connect with people from all walks of life, and certainly earned the trust of my entire staff.

James Kao | Owner, Larsons Jewelers

Tony spearheaded the revamp of our entire Culinary and Operations Program. Tony’s ability to connect with people at all levels allowed us to streamline the process and get company-wide buy-in.

Felix Musenden, Executive Vice President - House of Blues

First and foremost, it was a pleasure both knowing and working with Tony. He’s a seasoned operator, who brings to the table a wealth of knowledge, experience and integrity. He has an innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life, and his inclusive management style made all the hard work extremely enjoyable.

Christine Connell, Vice President of Operations - MRN Hospitality

I’ve worked with Tony on numerous projects over the past several years. The passion and energy he brings every day is infectious to whomever has the pleasure to work with him. I appreciate the collaborative environment he creates, and his professional and candid feedback are invaluable.
