The United States is a scary economic place. We have unemployment hovering around 10 percent, government deficit spending at all time highs, and a U.S. dollar that is a struggling currency.
Even in spite of all of this economic turmoil, small business owner Paul Emmett of Duffy’s Sports Grill has managed to take a small Florida restaurant chain with only 4 locations to a 22 location $75 million a year business. During this interview Emmett discusses with Dan Mangru what mistakes he’s made in the business, what industries he’s modelled his business after, and whether it is time to start acquiring distressed assets.
