So You Want to Run a Restaurant (SYWTRAR) is a podcast exploring the trials, triumphs, and technical difficulties of running a successful restaurant in the always changing, ever-more-competitive North American food and beverage landscape. Powered by Back Of House, the leading independent platform for independent restaurant operators to find, filter, and save on the technology they need to succeed, SYWTRAR is dedicated to celebrating the work, wisdom, and innovation changing the way we’re eating and drinking— today, tomorrow, and beyond.
In this episode, we interview entrepreneur Joelle Parenteau, Founder and Owner of Wolf Down. With locations in both the USA and Canada, Wolf Down is known for its hyper-focused, Berlin inspired street food menu—especially their mouthwatering German Döner that can be made for meat-lovers or vegans.
Joelle shares how she’s managed to nimbly run her business like a tech startup, the technology she can’t live without and her love for third party delivery. She also dives into Wolf Down’s hiring practices (no resumes allowed) and the team-building culture she’s created at her restaurants.
You’ll also get to hear hosts Zach and Claudia chat about the enormous impact of street food on eating culture and how it’s breaking down social and economic barriers for the food industry.
