"I have been fortunate enough to have belonged to a core group of individuals involved in a foodservice forum. During those years Brandon O'Dell has consistently provided sound, accurate and timely advice to novices and professionals alike. It has been a true pleasure reading his words."
- Steve Armstrong, Chef/Owner, Chef At Your Door, Personal Chef/Catering
"I have had the privilege of knowing Brandon O’Dell for over 10 years. His intelligence and knowledge of the food service industry never cease to amaze me. Brandon came to Washburn with his state-of-art programs and designs and brought Washburn out of the dark ages in regards to providing current programs and merchandising placement. He created some of the best in-house brand concepts that I have ever seen. His concepts are better than Sodexho, Compass Group, and even ARAMARK. Brandon was able to teach my staff and I brilliant accounting and tracking programs that gave us better insight and control over our daily business. Brandon, we at Washburn University would like to thank-you for your time and patience. Your dedication to helping others achieve their goals and objectives is evident in your enthusiasm and focus."
- Jerry Comstock
"The thing that has totally impressed me about Brandon is his no-nonsense approach to business. He doesn’t speak loudly or put on a show, you ask him a question and he answers quietly and directly with no fanfare, no hype or no spin. His honesty is refreshing!! His knowledge and abilities are right in there with the best of them!"
