A Change in Events

Sometimes we stumble upon things unexpected. My wife and I gave a good run at trying to open our restaurant. With everything set up, the only thing left was getting a location. We teamed up with the very best retail brokers but unfortunately luck was not on our side. We failed to sign a lease in time before our one year deadline that we had given ourselves. So are we giving up? For now, we have decided to place it on hold and will try again in the future.

Last week, I received a call from the CEO of one of the fastest growing quick-service concepts in the city. Surprised, I was offered an opportunity that boggled my mind for days, asking myself, should I or should I not, that was the question. I consulted with my wife, family and friends and at the end I knew I had to accept. The position is the Director of Operations, a role that involves more work than anything that I have taken in the past. Is it something I really wanted? Of course, I wanted to operate my own, but I felt this job had immense learning opportunities and most importantly it was something I believe I would enjoy. Who knows where this will lead.

What Happens to The Restaurant Blogger?

First off, I like to thank everyone who have visited and shown interest in this blog. I have decided to keep The Restaurant Blogger going to allow me to share stories when I have the urge and time to do so. Not only will I continue to visit your blogs and drop cards, I plan to post an article every 2-3 weeks or when time permits. Thanks again and stay tuned for my future posts and follow my journey.

    Hey. I’m glad you’ll keep posting on here! Good luck with everything! I hope the franchise world is good to you (you mentioned that you will be working with one of the fastest growing quick service restaurants…I assume that means they are a franchise…) If you and your wife do decide to later start a franchise of your own, you can use franchise gator or francorp connect. GOOD LUCK! -J.
