Restaurant Consulting: Charles Bililies on Sensible Growth

The only thing I ever wanted was to own my own bar…until I owned that bar. Then the only thing I wanted was to own a bar and a restaurant. There’s something within so many of us that pushes us to scale, despite the overwhelm that we’re are already suffering from. Charles Bililies took a different route with Souvla. His growth has been measured and strategic and I believe there’s much we can learn from his methodical process. In today’s conversation we discuss his strategy for scaling and the benefits he’s enjoyed from taking the patient path.
