Corsetti’s is a locally owned restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. On site is an award winning bakery and ice cream shop. Corsetti’s was established in 1974 by the Corsetti family. Chris and Kristi Sarchi purchased the Westbrook location in 2010 and added Corsetti’s Daily Scoop in 2013. The menu includes pizza, calzones, burgers & fries, salads, sandwiches of all kinds, and pasta dinners- they also sell beer, wine, soda & chips. Kristi was seeking a mentor with restaurant experience and was introduced to Certified Mentor Dave Bourke. His restaurant experience made him the perfect fit for Corsetti’s.
We are constantly looking to improve our restaurant- whether by updating kitchen equipment, giving the building a major “facelift”, or creating a beautiful patio area for customers to enjoy during the summer months. With advice from Dave we felt confident bringing on a new kitchen manager and now we are able to better control costs and broaden our menu!
Dave knows restaurants! He immediately focused in on our needs and helped us gain a better financial understanding of our business. He made practical suggestions that were easy and quick to implement. We went to SCORE with a specific question. We ended up with a much broader picture of our day to day operations, financial situation, and overall needs. We’ve used this newfound information to create both short and long term goals.
SCORE mentors are great resources for local business owners. It is wonderful to have someone to bounce ideas off of, and receive very valuable and practical information from. I’ve already recommended that several of my friends contact SCORE...I wish I’d gone 4 years ago!
