Which one do you think is appropriately stated? Or which one sounds better?

  1. Speed up customer service, while you grow your restaurant.

  2. Speed up customer service, while growing your restaurant.

  • Neither is a complete grammatical sentence; they both appear to use the semi-grammatical language often used by English speakers (rather than English writers). Spoken English is often sloppier and more casual than written English. – Mark Ripley Mar 11 '17 at 10:32
  • @MarkRipley - I dunno, I think they're acceptable imperatives, no? I agree that they are very informal-sounding, but I think they're grammatically correct. – stangdon Mar 11 '17 at 12:13

Both examples sound more like fragments, rather than full sentences.

Regarding meaning, it is mostly the same.

Example 2 sounds slightly better and accents "growing", while example 1 accents "you". So depending on what you want to say, you can use either of them.
