Some restaurants push growth while others struggle to survive

This week’s RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” features multi-unit restaurant attorney Dennis Monroe, discussing the industry’s divergent recovery.

It’s almost as if there are two restaurant industries, with one struggling to survive the pandemic, and the other flourishing.

This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” discusses that dichotomy. Dennis Monroe, chairman of the Minneapolis law firm of Monroe Moxness and Berg, joins the podcast to talk about these issues.

Monroe is well known in the restaurant finance community through his work at Monroe Moxness, having worked with numerous multi-unit restaurant companies over the years.

In the episode he discusses how some restaurant companies are getting aggressive in the current market as others pull back, and why. He talks about real estate issues, landlord relationships and spends time discussing the finance markets, and whether they will slow down or make a big comeback.
