Initially, Tom owned and operated several well-known restaurants in Colorado and then took his restaurants national. He co-owned two franchise companies, and consulted on the opening of over 80 restaurants across the country. Additionally, Tom founded a company that later became known as Einstein Bros. Bagels.
Tom's career has spanned the development of concepts in the major segment of the restaurant industry---- fast food, fast casual and fine dining.
While there are many "how to" books devoted to the restaurant industry, there are few, if any, on the step-by-step specifics of how to open a restaurant. So You Want to Open a Restaurant! begins with the necessary first step of writing a Business Plan, and covers the essential critical steps in detail that most novices might never consider. Included are humorous, personal anecdotes related to Tom's 50 years in the industry.
