LEONARDO: Old School Patriarch
I’ve been in this business since… forever! One restaurant served our family well and three locations was perfect, but NOOOO, more is better! My sons keep opening restaurants because they say they’re trying to achieve “economy of scale” which apparently means “borrow, spend and build!” No wonder they love me!
Hey, I’m a proud depression baby who’s taken plenty of risks, and I’m too old for this roller coaster! Now my daughter Jacquie, with a Doctorate in Nursing, has joined Leona’s part time; at least her staff will know the Heimlich maneuver! For the record, I desperately discouraged my kids from going into this business…
Madone! Guess I’ll just have to watch while they exhaust their egos!
