You have been dreaming of opening your own place for years. You have a business plan. Now you need a pile of money to get the place open. Where do you start? When can you start? How many people do you need to pitch? How many no’s before you get a yes? Today’s Guest is Brandon Byrd of Square Bar a forthcoming Bar and naturally leavened pan pizza joint in Brooklyn. Brandon has worked in operations at multi unit establishments such as two boots and in culinary at several top spots including Momofuku, Best Pizza & Lenoir. Square Bar will be Brandon’s first solo venture as a restaurateur. We first chatted with Brandon on January 14th about his fundraising journey and then we will catch up live today.
