The central theme of this discussion revolves around the notion that food shows — think FOOD Network shows — give up-and-coming chefs (and other potential future members of the hospitality industry) the wrong idea about how the industry works. Did these chefs just get these shows, or did they have to work for them? Young people seem to be confused.
There’s also a lot in this discussion about the education and training models for new hospitality managers, as well as what it’s like to manage a resort, and why Starbucks is actually a really good company, and not some omnipresent evil corporation (as some may think).
Hopefully you enjoy this interview; we’ll be back on Thursday with former Louisville QB Stefan LeFors, who is now coaching HS football in the Louisville area.
