Restaurant Profitability: Josh Kopel’s Blueprint for Success

I’d say my life is divided into two parts. Here on the show, my job is to ask the questions that I believe you want to know the answers to and then listen to the answers. But there’s another side to my life. As a coach, folks just like you ask me questions and it’s up to me to provide the answers. I wanted the opportunity to share the other part of my life with you and, recently, the opportunity presented itself. In today’s episode you’ll hear me being interviewed by my close friend and colleague, David Scott Peters for his show. In our conversation, I unpack the frameworks and mental models I’ve developed to help restaurant owners and operators scale profitability in any season.
