    July 4th

    July 4th

    The best American holiday… July 4th is great for the beach, the lake, the park and for back yard cook outs. For the restaurants you are most likely super slow or closed.  Fireworks are a big attraction for most people.  Not so much for me.  We take a look at how we spend this special holiday and we speculate how things will go this year with social distancing.

    Uniforms

    Uniforms

    Uniforms. Functional? On trend? In this week’s restaurant podcast we look back at the different uniforms we have had to wear or endure. Some fit the thread of our workplace and some were a mismatch.  Uniforms should be an aesthetic extension of the theme of the restaurant, all the while allow the staff to work optimally.

    The Pivot

    For some restaurants things may be business as usual; a few procedural quirks aside.  For others survival relies on the pivot.  How can we remain profitable without using the bar space? How can we lean into our strengths and ride the wave of change.  We hash out some ideas of how to monetize services previously untapped.

Everyone should listen to this!

I am obsessed with this podcast! I stumbled upon it when I was searching for something new to listen to and man, am I glad that I did! I have listened to all 27 episodes in the past 4 days and am now bummed that I have to wait for more to come out. I’m from Southern California and have been in the service industry for nearly 20 years. This podcast is so relatable because it goes to show that ultimately, every restaurant is the same. I love hearing each topic and what the guys have to say about it. I wish I could be a third host on the show because I’ll be listening in the car/gym/at home and want to jump in and tell my story or give my two cents on the topic. Marlon and Danny are charming, charismatic, knowledgeable, fair, funny and make me want to keep listening. Industry workers and customers alike should listen to this podcast and I am doing my best to spread the word about it. Keep up the good work, you guys! And my one suggestion is to have an email or Instagram for the show so there can be a dialogue between you and your listeners. Can’t wait for episode 28! -Linsey
