Todd Semrau: Owner of Urban Eats Consulting Group
Todd’s career in the hospitality industry took off in 1995 when, on a whim, he opened a restaurant in East Atlanta Village. The Heaping Bowl and Brew helped spur the revitalization of East Atlanta which has now become one of the nation’s most popular urban indie hangouts.
Ten years of operations and four additional restaurants led to the development of Urban Eats Consulting Group. With a vision for generating community in every project, Todd has worked in many capacities with a wide range of clients across the hospitality industry.
