Guy Fieri’s Advice To All Restaurant Owners!

I had the fantastic opportunity to talk to Guy Fieri at the opening of his new restaurant Downtown Flavortown in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. On top of touring the forty-three thousand square foot facility, taste-testing food, and playing arcade games, we sat down to talk all things restaurant marketing and the importance of restaurant owners telling their stories.

If you’re a loyal follower of mine you know this but Guy and myself both agree that… telling your restaurant’s story is paramount!
