R is for “Restaurant Impossible”
Restaurant Impossible is a TV show on the Food Network. Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine rehabs struggling restaurants in two days with just $10,000. Robert goes over everything from the decor and menu to staff and operations. Although the makeovers on the show are extreme, a lot of the lessons learned are fundamental and can be applied to many other types of businesses.
Another great show is Travel Channel’s Hotel Impossible.
