Jovial Business Solutions, LLC was founded on the principle of the “Experience”. All interactions within an organization combine themselves into an overarching total experience for the patron. In all of our services, the core of what we do anchors on the experience that it will generate. It is our Why. With our Why, we produce the What through the How and wrap it together utilizing the Who, the employee.
With this comes the realization and additional emphasis placed on the demonstrated belief that the front-line employee directly affects the bottom line of the business. For any system within an organization to reach success, the design and implementation of that system cannot be a top down, nor a bottom up process, but instead should be viewed as a holistic cultural venture.
Founder, Jules Breaux has been in the hospitality industry for his entire career. With his beginnings taking place in a small locally owned restaurant in Abbeville, La. where he served as a busboy. In this role, Jules noticed things within the restaurant that could be improved on to make the experience better. After voicing his observations to the management, adjustments were made to the operations which resulted in greater customer and employee satisfaction. This was the “spark“ that brought about the flame within him to make a difference in whatever environment that he found himself him. Over the next 14 years, Jules would strive to make every operation that he would be a part of function optimally. At the root of every decision was the solid foundation based on the experience of the customer that was to be served.
In 2018, Jovial Business Solutions was formed in an unofficial capacity when a college friend reached out for some assistance writing a business plan for a second location. Oh, and she needed it within 72 hours. Jules was able to successfully put together the plan and the owner of the business was able to secure funding within 48 hours of the submission of the plan.
Later, clients would request various different projects from Jules. These projects are what fanned the flame and illuminated the vision that has turned into the creation of the three main services offered by Jovial: Experiential Modeling, Business Development, and Operational Coaching.
