Interview with Reese Gardner (@reeseagardner)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Always loved business and creating concepts

Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?

Having the experience of seeing a couple go on their first date at one of my restaurants and follow their relationship to then see him propose two years later at the same table they had their first date.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Stay involved with every aspect of the business. Change your roles and work with your team members at every level.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

I’ve always surrounded myself with great people who motivated me to achieve more.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

I’m a single dad with 7 restaurants, he is the good thing I’ve brought into this world.

Do you have a favorite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Never give up, you’ll have some failures. My third restaurant closed and I felt at a complete sense of failure and embarrassment. You have to put it behind you and move on.
