Ken Burgin is talking with restaurant profitability expert Ivan Brewer, and they’re attempting to work out what will drive restaurant success in the future: 2019 is very different to 2009, let alone 1999!

They discussed Ivan’s background in restaurants and fast-paced hospitality, and where he learned his greatest lessons. Plus the modern skills that smart operators need to manage tough conditions and ever-growing competition. They also talked about skill shortages and labour productivity, and the simpler levels of service that customers will accept, if wage costs are to be reduced.
