Do you want to know what it takes to startup your own restaurant? Well then, meet Bradley Sanchez, he went to school for art, worked on Broadway Street, and started his first restaurant, The Salad Shop, by the age of 25.

One thing I always find fastening about them is their character — what books do they love? Music? Influencers? So at the end of every interview I ask, “What’s a book, a song, and a quote you love?”
