Restaurant Ideas: Adrianne Calvo’s Chef to Restaurateur Evolution

Share with:

Adrianne Calvo

We all wear many different hats but the hat we seem to wear the least is that of a business owner. Chef Adrianne Calvo launched her restaurant at 22 year old and miraculously has managed to overcome the odds, surviving the great recession and a global pandemic. How did she do it? She may have started as the chef of her own restaurant but over time evolved into a restaurateur, running her business instead of allowing her business to run her. Today we discuss how that evolution took place and the obstacles she had to overcome to transform into the owner her business needed.
