“That’s what I truly love about the restaurant industry. We’re working with every restaurant as if it’s their story…we’re starting with what is the essence of their idea, what is the essence of their menu.” [9:50]

“I didn’t think this was going to lead me somewhere, it was just a means of eating.” [21:50]
