Guy Fieri, and others, on the restaurant industry

As the second largest private-sector employer in the country, America's restaurants are an economic force, but that statistic doesn't fully tell the story of the millions of individuals who are living the American Dream by working in our industry. This video captures a few poignant stories that help tell the 'Industry of Opportunity' story. - http://restaurant.org.

"I think I was about ten. And it was put to me that if I didn't like the way we ate as a family, I could do the cooking. That's what started it all.

... No matter what happens, being in this industry, I can feed my family; I can make them great food. It's the greatest thing in the world....

... I wanted to open my first restaurant before I was 30. I wanted to make my first million by the time I was 40. I wanted to retire by the time I was 50. It has been ... storybook.

... You show me somebody that comes from the restaurant business, I'll show you somebody who can do anything."
- Guy Fieri
