Sam Mustafa uses Time-blocking to Increase Productivity

If there is one concept and mindset that all CEO’s share, it is that, “Time is money.” Time is precious and once it’s gone, it is gone forever. Utilizing your time wisely as a business leader is incredibly important. Everyday in this position, CEOs and business leaders are jumping from task to task and responding to endless emails, phone calls and personal obligations; 40 hour weeks quickly become 80 hours weeks in this position. Burnout is inevitable. This is something that I can attest to daily, and I would also like to mention that it never gets any easier! However, understanding, utilizing and managing your time makes a big difference in your overall efficiency and success of your business.

Award-Winning Toast! All Day coming to Metro Atlanta with First Franchise-Owned Location

Sam Mustafa, CEO and founder of Charleston Hospitality Group (CHG), is pleased to announce the first franchise-owned Toast! All Day restaurant, will open soon in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.  The closing of this sale to business leader Deidre White, brings the award-winning Southern restaurant concept to the desirable and thriving business district in Smyrna, Georgia, and is a watershed moment for CHG, the largest restaurant and entertainment group in the Charleston area, as it continues its expansion to other key East Coast markets. Toast All Day prides itself on creating a unique Southern-inspired experience for each of its guests, one toast at a time. The new franchise location, off Cobb Parkway in Smyrna, is expected to open in Fall, 2021. The entrepreneurially-minded Mustafa remained true to his future vision and the CHG team in the face of challenges posed by the pandemic, announcing his Toast! All Day expansion plan in October 2020, while many restaurants were struggling to survive or closing operations entirely. The current growth of Toast! All Day follows years of distinctive popularity and notable national accolades, including being voted the best breakfast by the New York Times and most recently for 2021, Top 25 'Best of the Best' Brunch Spots in the nation by Trip Advisor. Mustafa's four-year expansion strategy includes plans to open locations throughout the U.S., beginning with expansion in the Southeast as well as a ready-to-purchase franchise formula for other entrepreneurially-minded business investors.

CEO Sam Mustafa on how to lead by example

Sam Mustafa shares insights on how to lead by example

As the CEO of Charleston Hospitality Group in Charleston, SC, I realized early in my career that no two employees work the same. All employees have their own unique skill set, personality and strengths. As a leader, it is important to bring the best of these traits in your people, while also coaching them to be the best they can be. The process of delegation and finding those responsibilities best suited for your team is not an easy task. Let’s get that straight! Understanding what motivates your employees and how to operate efficiency as a leader is the key to mastering delegation.
