Three founders on what it takes to be in the restaurant business

Plus, the NRN staff wraps up CREATE


At CREATE, Spike Mendelsohn, founder of PLNT Burger, Michael Lastoria, founder and CEO of &pizza and James Park, founder of Wing Wok, all sat down with us to gibe their takes on the restaurant industry.

Fresh off panels, the three founders discussed what they admired about each other and what takeaways they got from the event.

The three are friends and big personalities so there was plenty of chatter as well.

Plus, the NRN staff wraps up CREATE and gives listeners some behind-the-scenes information about the event.
