About the Host

Josh Kopel

I walked the path for over 20 years. I started as a Busser, worked my way to Barback, then to Bartender to Bar manager to General manager to Owner/Operator. I’ve run everything from dive bars to fine dining restaurants and everything in between. I’m one of the lucky restaurateurs that’s made it. Not only do I have a successful, profitable and award winning restaurant but I also have the most luxurious possession a restaurateur can have: time. Time to spend with my family, time to focus on my health and time to help folks just like myself.

I love this industry and I love the people in it. The joy as I experienced by serving my community as a restaurateur has been completely eclipsed by the satisfaction I get from helping fellow restaurateurs build better businesses and lives for themselves. Whether you need bailing out or building up, I’m here to help
