Hospitality Industry Expert Maria Struik Hits Amazon Best Seller List With “Women Who Mean Business”

Maria Struik, entrepreneur and hospitality industry expert, recently hit four best-seller lists with the new business and marketing book “Women Who Mean Business.

Orlando, Fla. – July 19, 2012 – Maria Struik, Owner of international food franchise Roosters Diner, recently joined a select group of leading businesswomen from around the world to co-write the best-selling book titled, Women Who Mean Business. The book was released by CelebrityPress® – a leading business and marketing book publisher.

Women Who Mean Business, will feature top women in the business world revealing strategies that can help women grow their business, profits and lifestyle.  On the day of the release, Women Who Mean Business reached best-seller status in four Business and Marketing categories.

With more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Maria is a natural in this very demanding and always changing business. Maria was educated in the Netherlands; upon immigrating to Canada, she went back to school to obtain her Real Estate and Business Brokers License. After meeting her late husband John, who was an Area Franchisee for an international food franchise, they worked as a husband and wife team. Their employment as Area Franchisees was a job which they both enjoyed tremendously, as it was a combination of hospitality and real estate; meeting and helping people of all walks of life. John’s sudden passing, 3 years ago and ongoing legal confrontations with the new corporate ownership led to a settlement, which left Maria with no other alternative than to re-think the hospitality industry as a whole.

Maria understands all to well how busy everyone’s life is these days; how we all long to think back of the time, when Mom made delicious home cooked meals. (Remember the stack of pancakes with real Log Cabin Syrup; or the delicious bowl of fresh made soup?)

This is what inspired Maria to (re-)develop a concept which provides the old familiar foods in a more contemporary setting, “smothered” with hospitality, second to none. The old familiar and proven diner concept was re-named Roosters Diner. Maria is responsible for overseeing the existing units, as well as site selection and recruitment of new operators.
