A local cattle rancher owned his own restaurant. Raised his own beef for the restaurant. Done extremely well. He was a very hard worker and each day he meets with customers at restaurant during lunch. He also tends to his cattle.
He got ready to retire and sold his restaurant business for a tidy sum. The people that bought it didn’t run it as well the cattle man did. It’s been going downhill last three years and it’s about to fold.
The restaurants that I know the owners that run it themselves are the most successful. Takes hard work and good management to make it successful.
That sounds much the same as stories I’ve been told. A former employee of one barbecue place mentioned how the owner did so well that he built a second restaurant in or near a big city. He, the owner, was a cattleman too. The employee said the guy’s first location was such a hit that he eventually got an offer that couldn’t be refused for both restaurants under the same name. He retired and even sold the cattle business & ranch too.
