The restaurant owners I work with every week are looking for transformation. They might be tired of working so many hours in the restaurant or frustrated by not being able to move the needle on things. Or they are missing out on life and want a better balance. Whatever their reason, the best part of my job is when a restaurant owner does the work and transforms their restaurant and life using the systems I teach. In this episode of “The Restaurant Prosperity Formula” podcast, I want to introduce you to a restaurant owner who has done the work and transformed his restaurant, the lives of his employees and the lives of his family in his family business. I’m talking to Matt Jacobs, owner of Ben Franklin's Taproom and Grille in Newcastle, Penn. Matt, his dad and brothers opened a convenience store about six years ago with a small amount of food, but because of some changes to laws in their state, it resulted in a lot of competition that was created almost overnight. They decided to transition to a full-service. Neither Matt or his dad and brothers had restaurant experience, so after muddling through for a few years, Matt started on a path to make real change in his business, to take control. During our discussion he shares the incredible changes he made, how he got his life back and how every restaurant owner looking for this kind of transformation can do the same things.
