In this episode, Leo and Jamie talk about the small business facts. You may be surprised to hear that in the first year 30 out of 100 restaurants will fail and that the national average of profit a restaurant will make is 6.2%. They talk about some more interesting facts about restaurants but most importantly some tips on how you become a business that survives. One of the keys to being a successful restaurant is creating and cultivating great relationships with vendors, staff, the community, and guests.
They also have a fun time chatting about their annual Halloween event, Gialloween! This will be their 5th year doing it and every year they say it gets better! Last year, 95% of the people that came, came dressed up! It’s a lot of fun. Be sure to go if you are local in Atlanta.
