This week’s episode of Opening Soon is all about sourcing. You’ve chosen your partners, you’ve got a lease and your business plan is in full effect. You’ve got a budget for equipment, tableware, interior furnishings, uniforms and more. Where/When do you start? Where can you save, where can you finance? Where should you splurge?

We are joined by Morgan Tucker, director of business development at Singer Equipment where she oversees tabletop including her signature Little M Tucker line of curated products. And Josh Morgan COO of Melt Shop and an Operating Partner of Aurify brands. Both came to their current roles after years in nationally recognized restaurants including USHG and the Nomad.
