Episode 88 – Josh Kopel and how the industry looks in California and the benefit of hindsight
Josh walked the path for over 20 years. He started as a Busser, worked his way to Barback, then to Bartender to Bar manager to General manager to Owner/Operator. He has run everything from dive bars to fine dining restaurant and everything in between. He’s one of the lucky restaurateurs that’s made it.
In 2019, he founded FLO; a restaurant growth accelerator focused on helping restaurants optimize their business and dramatically grow sales. The joy as he experienced by serving my community as a restaurateur has been entirely eclipsed by the satisfaction he gets from helping fellow restaurateurs build better businesses and lives for themselves. Whether you need bailing out or building up, he is there to help.
In this podcast, we talk about what he has seen happen in the hospitality industry since the start of COVID-19 in LA, what areas of the hospitality industry do you think will be hurt the hardest from this crisis and what’s next for Josh and his brand, as he is doing so many great things. I hope you enjoy the joyful podcast at this time.
