As a downtown business revitalization consultant and speaker, Jon Schallert works with downtown development groups around the world who want to create Destination Downtowns. Jon's trademarked 14-point process for reinventing a business into a consumer destination has led to Jon consulting with hundreds of downtowns across America. Jon believes that the easiest way to create a Destination Downtown is to teach downtown business owners how to turn their businesses into consumer destinations, and to teach them how to collectively pull customers to their businesses for repeat visits.

Jon is the only downtown business revitalization consultant in the world to use this approach. Jon frequently works with cities and towns who have spent millions of dollars on downtown physical infrastructure improvements, who find that these changes alone do not attract large amounts of consumers. Jon's Destination Business principles can be applied to any size downtown and marketplace, regardless of the level of infrastructure improvements that have taken place. Jon's varied experiences include consulting with business owners on driving customers to their businesses during street construction, creating a brand marketing campaign on a limited budget, and recruiting retail businesses to downtowns to strengthen the retail mix.
Jon's workshops for downtown business owners and entrepreneurs have been seen at the International Downtown Association and the National Main Street Center's Town Meeting, conducted by the National Trust For Historic Preservation. Additionally, Jon's Destination Business strategies can be applied to any retail or service business that compete with superstores like Wal-Mart and Home Depot.
