    Angie D.
    Our experience with Ray and Blue Orbit was (and is) above and beyond our expectations. We hired Ray to help us with a new restaurant venture, based off of his vast experience and previous client list. Not only did he help us purchase a restaurant that we may not have otherwise purchased, but he helped us understand all of the pros and cons of buying a turn-key business. With his approval, we are delighted to be a "new" business owner and working for ourselves. His assessment also was an integral part of our business plan, which our lenders were thrilled to read and use as part of our evaluation. We cannot thank Ray enough for his service and commitment to us, and look forward to working with him again on future assessments to grow our already wonderful business. Thanks, Ray! - Angie & Doug

    Blue Orbit is AWESOME. We still refer to "what would Ray do?" in our leadership meetings (5 years later)! He is a pro in the industry with a very broad knowledge in both sides of the house as well as an attuned marketing mind. He helped us refine our processes and gave a wise outside view into our business and brand. I highly recommend Ray and his team!

    Dick C.
    We got fantastic work from the whole blue orbit team! Ray led the effort to do an evaluation of a high end restaurant venture that failed and then was involved in litigation over that failure. Timely, insightful, and responsive to the needs of the client. After the evaluation, Ray did a super job testifying as an expert witness in a federal DC jury trial. His vcredentials in his field were impeccable. And his work was a major factor in getting the positive jury verdict. Hire Ray and BO!
