Our Story

Matt learned the hard way how to run restaurants.  Mistake by mistake, slowly honing in on how to manage the chaos.  After years of sleepless nights, fear, and anxiety he finally figured things out.

Passing that institutional knowledge along wasn't so easy.  Like those before, he worked to build excel based solutions to help systemize some of the learnings.  However, it was meeting Osa that sparked the inspiration of what could be possible.

Our Mission is to empower your team with the information they need to proactively manage their operation most efficiently.  We harness the latest technology and take the time to understand the needs of operators on the ground. 

Our goal isn't to be another vendor.  It's to be your demand forecasting partner.

Matt Wampler
Co-Founder & CEO

He started his journey in restaurants early, taking over a failing Jimmy Johns franchise right out of college. After turning it around he spent the next 7 years opening additional units before exiting the business in 2018.  After learning to code over the pandemic, Matt became consumed by the disparity between today's technology and the tools currently available to operators.  Possessed with the mission to close that gap, ClearCOGS was born.
