The Ins and Outs of Running the Bars for a Big Hotel Group

In my latest post on SevenFifty Daily, I interviewed Shel Bourdon, director of bars for the Two Roads Hospitality group that runs Joie de Vivre and Thompson hotels, among others. 

In particular I was curious about how one person can do all that, and how one keeps concepts of different hotel bars separate, and do hotel groups own the hotels or just run them, and if it's easier to run 90 bars than just one, and any efficiencies and difficulties in the whole process. I had to learn a ton about both hotel groups and hotel bar operations in order to do the story. 

In any case, give it a read and I hope you find it interesting.
