food and beverage management discussion 3

This week we will continue along with where the food comes from and focus on the farmers and their seasons. Seth Gross has been in the restaurant business for 27 years. He currently owns Bull City Burgers & Brewery as well as Pompieri Pizza, both in Durham, NC. One thing that’s clear when you speak to Seth: he believes in standing for something. For instance, he only uses grass-fed beef for his burgers, and has vowed that if he ever has to resort to corn-fed beef, he will close his restaurant. He also won’t use tomatoes on his burgers or pizzas during the winter months, because he can’t get fresh, local tomatoes then. More examples abound in this really fun, inspiring conversation. And you’ll also learn how he’s been able to get customers to tattoo themselves with his logo. Enjoy….
