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.
