Do you love success stories? Are you navigating how to fulfill your own professional goals and reach your dream career?

Luckily for you, Julia Stewart is an expert on the subject — and also a member of Fortune magazine’s list of the Top 50 Most Powerful Women in the U.S. She worked as a server for IHOP at age 16, and after college, through dedication and hard work, made it up the corporate ladder to become the President of Applebee’s. When Applebee’s passed her over for the job of CEO, after leading the company turnaround, IHOP scooped her up to be their CEO instead. She then bought Applebee’s…and that was just the beginning.

Come hear her authentic story of parlaying pancakes into poise, power, and purpose as a female entrepreneur. Of course, we’d love it if you invited a friend!

We can’t wait to see you there.

Julia Stewart, Founder & CEO of Alurx is on a mission to enable health-conscious consumers to achieve what is most valuable to them–their wellness. As a member of Fortune magazine’s list of Top 50 Most Powerful Women in the US, Julia’s successful career spans over 40 years at some of America’s most iconic and beloved brands. Her leadership accounts for the rejuvenation and continued success of companies such as IHOP, Applebee’s, and Taco Bell. While CEO of IHOP, she orchestrated the strategic acquisition of the much larger Applebee’s brand. The combined entity became Dine Brands Global, and she became Chair and CEO of the world’s largest sit-down restaurant chain.

Throughout Julia’s career, she led companies known as “everyday indulgent brands.” Recently she had an epiphany to pivot 180 degrees and focus on consumer health and wellness versus everyday indulgence. In 2020, Julia founded Alurx to create an App-based platform to deliver the solutions consumers want but cannot find today. Alurx offers a personalized guide from physicians and wellness experts via educational materials, trusted advice, customized recommendations, behavior modification, and much more. Best of all, it’s all in one place. Alurx will launch the subscription App in the US in 2023. Until then, consumers can visit for expert advice and vetted products and services.
