Barstools: The current ones are larger than the ones he is thinking about, He thinks he can get 4 more bodies at the bar. As we all know, bars are cash cows, so thats where this money is coming from.Originally Posted by John
as for the silverware.... dunno.
What I saw in the whole thing was a real lack of quality communication. On one side you have Jefferey trying to bring the place into profitability, which, no offense to anyone, is his perogative as the 'financial' guy.
Rocco does have a tendancy to put "Rocco Inc." ahead of "Rocco's 22". It made me laugh when he whined to his g/f about how he is so busy trying to make the restaurant successful. But lets look at where his energy is going.
C.I.A. for a lecture/Jury/Award: Mostly for "Rocco Inc." (except for the chef he grabbed for U.P., and maybe roccos)
Book Signings: "Rocco Inc." (could it lead to people in the Restaurant? Who knows)
TV Shows: Rocco Inc.
Soaps: Rocco Inc.
Jefferey talked about making a go at being together in this project, and the very next day he's upstate, for two days. No contact with Jefferey, no nothing.
What is Jefferey to think? Jefferey said 'lets make an announcement together'. In my business mind, my first thought is: 'when? I need to schedule this'.
Although I tend to blame Rocco for his flakeyness, There is some blame to go to Jefferey as well. He knows the Rocco he is dealing with. Jefferey should be on Rocco's butt like white on rice.
