A Deep Dive into Inspiration for Women in Hospitality and Tech

By Brianne Harvey’s

Hospitality is a sector that is considered a “care” industry. Thus, as expected, women tend to find employment in this landscape easier. However, that’s not true across the board. While women comprise more than 50% of the workforce, they only hold 22% of C-Suite positions. Regarding owning businesses or CEO positions, women merely have 1 out of 31 seats.

However, Brianne Harvey has emerged amidst this disparity as a beacon of inspiration and empowerment. To leave a lasting legacy for her daughter, Brianne’s journey in the hospitality-IT industry serves as a testament to the power of resilience and ambition.

Like many women in the hospitality industry, Brianne started her journey as a host. Amazed by the vibrancy of restaurants, she decided to grow in this field and reach the top. She gained experience in the industry by working through every position possible. During these jobs, Brianne found the niche that appealed to her the most.

It was Restaurant-Tech, innovating restaurants through the implementation of modern developments. Building her skill set in the field, Brianne today works with top restaurants as a systems expert. With a deep understanding of the interplay between hospitality and IT, she advises on the appropriate blend of systems to achieve goals, benchmarks, and budgets.

She enjoys a full-time position with Apicii, a bespoke hospitality management company, as the VP of Technology. However, that’s not all. Brianne had to reach the apex; she dreamed of becoming a leading figure in the restaurant landscape. Thus she started two game-changing ventures: Break Bread Consulting and Restaurant Resource.

Break Bread Consulting, Brianne’s first venture, is an IT consulting firm that provides fractional IT services and specializes in implementing new software solutions for full-service restaurants. What started as a one-woman operation quickly grew into a team of freelancers, allowing Brianne to cater to the growing demand for her services. Her dedication to helping restaurants nationwide and providing her team work-life balance fuels her passion for the business.

Restaurant Resource, Brianne’s recent endeavor, is a passion project born out of her desire to give back to an industry that has weathered numerous challenges. Unlike other platforms, Restaurant Resource stands apart by offering a free and inclusive international directory of software, products, and service providers for the hospitality industry. By eliminating barriers and providing easy access to essential resources, She aims to save restaurants valuable time and connect them with companies they may otherwise struggle to discover.

Juggling between a full-time executive position while running two businesses cements Brianne’s position as a woman leader in the hospitality-IT line of work. From a hostess to an innovator who helps restaurants find the best-fit solutions, this journey makes her a role model for her daughter to follow.

Brianne is leaving a legacy of determination, commitment, adaptability, and willingness to learn for her daughter. Her remarkable achievements and unwavering commitment not only redefine the role of women in this field but also inspire future generations to pursue their dreams unapologetically.
