Work On Your Restaurant, Not In It: Snoop Dillard of Escobar

I always dreamed of being a successful restaurateur.

In those grand visions from my youth, I must have missed rubber apron hanging in front of my 3 piece suit as I washed dishes in the scullery, and yet, there it was.

Over the last 20 years of being an owner and operator, I’ve felt like a prince and, at times, like a prisoner.

Snoop Dillard has managed to escape, creating a veritable empire of businesses while maintaining a balance at home. Her path required as much strength as it did strategy and today she shares what it took to break free of day to day operations.
