Opening a New Italian Restaurant: Growth and Expansion

Profitable Hospitality Podcast

Release Date: 03/18/2019

Ken Burgin talks with Andre Ursini about the opening of his new Italian restaurant Orso, in Adelaide. We previously interviewed Andre in Podcast #283 From Master Chef to Italian Restaurant Success, and it was great to catch up with him again to talk about his second restaurant.

We discussed the challenges of renovating and opening in a historic building, building and strengthening a team of employees, expanding the management systems and creating a competitive edge against other restaurants in the city. We also raised a question often asked in interviews with restaurateurs: ‘how do you have a business and also have a life with your family?’.
