Jon Taffer took to Twitter last night to answer questions during a brand new episode of Bar Rescue. This was the first time Taffer returned to a bar that he’d previously rescued, so most of the questions centered around that. We also get a taste of what he does on the side and what, if any, books he plans to release. Enjoy!
1: Reckless ownership is why Second Base failed after the first rescue, and why it will continue to fail until Terry changes his ways.
2: If you have good intentions and a formidable work ethic, Taffer will try to save your bar (in spite of your incompetent boss).
3: See what Taffer did here?
4: Rescuing a bar is one thing, rescuing owners from self-destructive habits can prove to be much more difficult.
5: O-Face: still the worst. Ever. #walkout
6: Do NOT mess with a member of Taffer’s crew.
7: Owner Terry was beyond rescue, and wasted everybody’s time right from the beginning. This explains why he wouldn’t front his own money.
8: Jon is a tremendously talented public speaker. A quick internet search will prove that he’s been using words to motivate and empower for years.
9: Terry isn’t even the majority owner of his second bar.
10: Boom Roasted, Terry
11: Taffer said that he would advocate for the staff at Second Base to get new employment elsewhere. Let’s hope they can get out of that place!
12: Look forward to getting your copy the Bar Rescue cocktail book!
