There are over 1.4 M businesses in the US run by married couples and I can rattle off dozens of restaurants run by couples from the top of my head. And family owned businesses account for 64% of the GDP and account for 62% of all employment opportunities. So what makes working with your family so appealing? And what are some of the challenges. As a husband and wife team we are excited to get to the bottom of some of these questions with one of our other favorite partners in biz and life- David and Anna Posey of Elske in Chicago.

David and Anna worked their way through some of the best kitchens in Chicago before partnering on Elske. Elske has won numerous awards including Bon App Hot 10 in 2016, Eater BNR and earned and retained a Michelin star since 2017.
