New ROU Video: Scott Maitland, part I

We continue the Restaurant Owners Uncorked (ROU) video series with Scott Maitland, owner of Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Scott started his restaurant fifteen years ago to prevent a chain restaurant from opening in one of the premier restaurant locations in Chapel Hill. He now runs a $7,000,000 per year business with over 120 employees, and will soon open North Carolina’s first from scratch micro-distillery.

In this 3-minute video, Scott discusses the business of running your business, a day in his life as a restaurant owner, and why independent restaurants are important repositories for culture in their towns.

It’s an awesome, awesome, awesome vid. Enjoy…

This is the first of seven videos we’re producing from our interview with Scott. Stay tuned…
