Show host Michael Bull is a respected industry expert with an affable style always knowing what the audience wants next. He hand picks respected guests who join him to share market intelligence, forecasts and strategies related to chosen weekly topics.
Topics ranged from the size of the industry ($799 billion in restaurant sales) along with the more than 1 million Restaurant locations in the United States.
Bull asked his guests to provide their insight on the growth of the industry and some of its challenges. Some of those challenges, according to the Restuarant Brokers, include regulatory hurdles and minimum wage increases which affect restaurants disproportionately. On the flip side, the duo reveals that small business optimism has never been higher and for that reason, they see continued growth in the industry.Bull asked the Broker's for one sentence to describe the outlook for 2017 sales, "With people settling into the new administration the consumer confidence is going to lag what is happening in the stock market and we are looking forward to it being huge."
