Study Hall Research Senior Consultant Josh Tahan featured in Business Observer’s ‘Out of the Office’ profile series

Josh Tahan, one of Study Hall’s Senior Research Consultants, is featured in the current Business Observer FL and its ‘Out of the Office’ profile series.

The Business Observer’s occasional series highlights business executives and professionals and their range of avocations, diversions and other ‘when not at work’ passions.  Josh is profiled for his expertise and renown within the Big Green Egg community in Tampa Bay, Florida, and outside the state.

Tahan has mastered the art and science of cooking on the Big Green Egg—the domed, ceramic grill and smoker first introduced in 1974 that has since developed a huge following around the world.  The Business Observer highlights this expertise, but also covers Tahan’s ongoing role as an in-demand cooking instructor at The Rolling Pin kitchen emporium in Brandon, as well as his role as an equally in-demand demonstration chef at Egg Fests across the Southeastern US.

The full-page feature story underscores a few important things about the Study Hall Research team:  first, as an employer, we actively encourage our staff to pursue passions and be involved in the community; second, a significant part of our custom marketing research consulting is in the area of food (QSR, casual dining, food & menu development, culinary strategy and more); and third, as a research consulting partner for numerous Fortune 100, 500, and 1000 firms, we believe that we should be incredibly smart, tremendously valuable—and also fun to work with!
