MINI CHAT: CEO TALKS ABOUT FAMILY RESTAURANT RENOVATIONS

George: So Chris when we work with our partners 9 out of 10 of them are international or at least national here in the country, multiple locations, multiple products and just more large-scale national accounts. Last year I got to work on a personal project with the family business. Grew up at 5 years old, had a restaurant my parents bought a restaurant and since 5 years old till now have owned that restaurant, my parents working at it and last year just took it on to basically renovate it using the resources, team, products that we offer here at Ideoli and just kind of do a nice family restaurant. It was more of a pet project for myself but using our team, Chris talk about it just internally how it was treated, even with the team like it was a multinational account and the way we helped pick the materials and all that, just bringing it all together.

Chris: It's always exciting obviously to bring family into what you do, everyone here at Ideoli we all say family first we’re truly I know you're a mama's boy just like me so to be able to help our families is tremendous from the start right? The cool challenge with your family’s restaurant was just all those little pieces to do furniture and lighting and full plants and the bathroom fixtures and just all these little details tile that in, bring it all into one shipment so it's all coordinated and all shows up at the site at the same time, to be on site, help coordinate the workings go with the contractors this and that. I mean it was really sort of a case study, an initial case study of what we're doing now with our full bids that we're doing across 600 unit multi-family complexes. So it was a lot of fun, was definitely a learning experience and then obviously cool for you I'm sure just being at the family side.

George: Totally cool and just seeing my parents and patience I just said hey have patience this isn't top priority on the timeline we're going to put, it we're going to get it to you and then just seeing it done and then just all the customers after that just, it’s proud, family business just proud, but it's cool being able to tie my business our business here with the family business and just kind of bring that to life, it was just a cool experience.

Chris: Absolutely. From the team as well, being able to help each other out it's like a good morale booster everyone was into it, it was just a really fun exciting project to work on. 

George: Amen brother amen.
