The Stars of Restaurant Owners Uncorked: Keith Paul

Mar 1, 2011 | Schedulefly Crew
Keith Paul and his wife, Heather, opened their first restaurant in 2000. Now they own A Good Egg Dining Group, which has six extremely successful and popular restaurants (Cheever’s Cafe, Iron Starr Urban BBQ, Red PrimeSteak, Market-C, Republic Gastropub, Pops) and a catering business (Cheever’s Catering). Keith came from the food distribution business, having worked at Ben E. Keith Foods for a number of years. Six successful restaurants in 10 years? Pay attention to what Keith has to say...

- Don't advertise - just focus on what’s going on inside your four walls
- Learn from everybody on your team – you don’t know it all
- Look for good people over experienced ones
- Be second to your staff’s family
- Number two won’t balance a failing number one
- Being top heavy is O.K. if you’ve got great people
