Book by Scott Barnett

Scott Barnett’s journey in the restaurant industry commenced as a teenage parking attendant at a popular steakhouse in Palm Desert, California. Opting for the challenging path, he engaged in various roles within the business, including cooking, serving, and bartending, all while working his way through college. With a rebellious and irreverent approach, he entered the corporate world, fostering a belief that the restaurant business could be revolutionized. Taking charge of a struggling company, he and his team not only saved it but also sought avenues for growth, leading to the inception of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurant concept. Despite facing challenges such as economic downturns, conventional business practices, preconceived notions, skeptical Wall Street investors, and personal doubts, Scott and his team succeeded in establishing one of the world’s most prosperous restaurant companies.
