I would like to thank you for the fantastic book which covered almost 60% of my ideas and plans, the other 40% was an eye opener with great details and well researched market. I read your book straight away after downloading up to 165 pages and it has put a smile on my face for some reason
Once again, thank you for your contribution to the show and for the advice and book. Your input was one of the highlights of the week for me. Hope to speak with you again!Shannon Dobbs5 Star Saloon
I received your e-book yesterday and I’m already halfway through it. Cheers to you for putting this out. As an aspiring bar owner, I was hooked to your book in the first paragraph. Yes, my self interview begins with "My dream has always been to....".Brad PaulikChief EngineerPrism Hotels
It is to my knowledge that you are one of the person in this industry who has no comparison. You are a excellent designer, mentor and a perfect complete package in this industry. I am very much willing to get your concepts in this part of the world in order to make you renowned here as well as help me make my project a great success. I have always had a dream of providing people in this part with the best service they deserve when they are out for some entertainment. I am very new to this industry so i want a renowned and skilled person like you to help me out with this crisis. I would look forward to your positive response on this matter.
During my research of building a bar I was fortunate to come in contact with Chris Lenahan from Excellent Bars. I viewed all his youtube videos and said to myself wow this guy really knows his stuff! So I decided to contact Chris for some assistance. Chris is the best! He reviewed my prints and put together a drawing that I was able to give to the architect. Chris promptly addressed all my problems and concerns. His extensive knowledge of the bar industry gave me a great education on construction and efficiency. He went above and beyond!! I really appreciate what you did for me Chris, keep up the good work. You sincerely are a gentleman.Best of luck to you and your family and thanks again!!
I was wondering if you would have time to provide input on the layout of the bar equipment behind the bar, I have no problem paying for your expert advice. I saw you in Las Vegas at a seminar as was very impressed with your knowledge in the industry.Andy McAnallyMac's Sports Grill
