Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

It was once said that the restaurant industry is ripe for entrepreneurs because there's a better chance of becoming the next Ray Kroc than the next Bill Gates. But, with the obstacles facing today's chefs and restaurateurs, it's not enough to be talented in the kitchen. It's not even enough to layer on keen business skills. The market demands a new expertise… the ability to get the right quality food at the right price point to an expanded audience… and make money. It takes some pretty mad skills to navigate the obstacles to that.

This panel discussion featured Steven Goldstein, Partner, The Culinary Edge • Tom Douglas, Owner and Executive Chef, Tom Douglas Restaurants • Alan Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, Lemonade Restaurant Group • Hugo Matheson, Chef and Co-Founder, The Kitchen • Spike Gjerde, Baltimore restaurateur and proprietor of Woodbury Kitchen.
