Faces of Entrepreneurship: Alvin Cailan

"I feel like most people who fail think they are entitled to business. You literally have to shake people’s hands, ask them how their meal was, and take criticism and actually act on it. If someone says something is too salty, fix it. Taste it, taste it a hundred times, have your employees taste it a hundred times, and fix the problem. That just goes with concepts we incubate here - same thing. It’s like we focus on making sure we offer food that you can’t get anywhere else. Because at that point you monopolize the market." -- Alvin Cailan
