Tandelyn "Tan" Daniel
Georgia Hospitality & Foodservice Network
Tandelyn's hospitality career began years ago with an apron, notepad and a smile in her hometown of Dublin, GA. She worked as a Huddle House server at the age of sixteen. Later she worked as a unit manager for the iconic Waffle House.
Prior to founding the Georgia Hospitality & Foodservice Network to help clients and network members prosper, Tandelyn served as the Senior Membership Development Executive for a Georgia restaurant advocacy organization that lobbied on behalf of the state's18,000+ restaurants. In that mission driven sales role, she focused on membership growth and retention while delivering operations solutions to restaurateurs, airport concessionaires, mom & pops, franchises, hotels and multi-units operators.
Having worked in the fast paced hospitality industry she clearly understands the need to get things done right the first time. Investing in the GAHFN by becoming a consulting client or network member allows you to tap into the shared business knowledge gained from the restaurants, food trucks, event planners, non-profits and hotels the GAHFN team of industry professional has developed relationships with.
After obtaining a degree in public relations from the University of Georgia, Tandelyn built a career in leadership and management roles for Quad Graphics and the Waffle House. Tandelyn's business development skills and project management expertise has been honed over the years growing multi-million dollar accounts such as Sports Illustrated, Kimberly-Clark, Scientific Games and Lockheed Martin.
Having spent the bulk of my 20+ year career in hospitality & leadership roles, I founded the Georgia Hosptiality & Foodservice Network because I am dedicated to empowering restaurant and foodservice owners with needed education and business connections that result in operations growth.
