With the Delta Variant spreading and restaurateurs picking up the pieces from 2020, what will the post-COVID world look like for restaurants?
In this episode of The Main Course, host Barbara Castiglia speaks with Micha Magid, co-CEO of Mighty Quinn’s BBQ, a NY-based Authentic barbeque experience in a fast-casual setting. They discuss how his business survived the pandemic, helped others–including other restaurants–push through the challenging year, and what’s next for New York restaurants in a post-pandemic world.
Along with his brother-in-law, Chris Gourmos, and pitmaster Hugh Magnums, Magid launched Mighty Quinn’s in December of 2012. They opened their first brick-and-mortar Mighty Quinn’s restaurant in the East Village.
Since the brand’s inception, the three partners have opened nine corporate-owned locations, a restaurant at Yankee Stadium, two locations in Madison SquareGarden, and one international franchised restaurant. Now, with solid operations and a growing fan base, the brand is excited to push growth forward through franchising.
A new episode of The Main Course, our podcast series with MarketScale, is served up every Tuesday and Thursday.
