Dave Magrogan Group


  • Paper schedules were inefficient for managers and employees
  • Small corporate team and executive chefs couldn’t see the “big picture”
  • Managers had no insight into their labor performance or cost controls
  • Human Resources needed a better way to manage ACA statuses and health benefits eligibility


  • One store saves between $500 and $1,000 a week on labor costs
  • Punctuality controls keep employees on-time and schedules accurate
  • Proforma Report and templates simplified forecasts and scheduling
  • Corporate team eliminated cumbersome manual data entry


Founded in 2003, the Dave Magrogan Group, or DMG for short, is a full-service hospitality management company that provides branding, concept creation, training and operation management across 14 stores and five concepts: Kildare’s Irish Pub chain, Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House, Harvest Seasonal Grill and Wine Bar, Barra Rossa Ristorante and Red Star Craft House.


“HotSchedules saves us between $500 to $1,000 a week just by paying attention to it and using the tool. If we went back to doing it the old way, we would be wasting that much money in labor every week.”

-Gary Grasela, General Manager, Harvest Grill & Wine Bar
