Restaurant Impossible - The Main Dish - CLOSED

The Main Dish Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits The Main Dish in Meridianville, Alabama, where he meets Lynn and Ken who bought the restaurant 5 years ago despite them both having no experience in running a restaurant. When he arrives Lynn is out the front in a hot dog suit, despite the fact that they don't sell hot dogs... 

They are $50,000 in debt and working 80+ hours a week to keep the restaurant afloat. Robert discovers that most of the food is frozen and that they have completely got the costings wrong on the catering side of the business. Robert changes the decor and the menu to help bring in customers to the restaurant. 

What Happened Next?

Robert revisits a few months later and sales are up, most customers are happy with the new changes. They are cutting back the catering until they can control the costs, using only fresh produce and most of Robert's menu remains. The reviews after Robert visited appear to be average. They sold the restaurant in February 2013 after receiving an offer that was too good to turn down and it became Jojo's Restaurant and catering with average reviews.
