These are challenging times for sure. Job loss has created a new awareness of and appreciation for networking, online and off.

Open for Business...Finally!

Thanks to all FohBoh members that have helped me figure all this stuff out. While I have been in the business for a while as a FOH server and 'tender, being an entrepreneur is new. My friend who is a government employee refers to entrepreneurs as "I-trip-in-manure" glory I say.

Opening your first restaurant is really special. There is a s***-load of responsibility when your ass is on the line and I guess this is exactly why my… Continue

I just have to tell all fohboh members how amazing it feels to to be able to ask a question of strangers and get excellent advice. It comes without judgement, without cost and is actually based on real world experience, and is so typical of this amazing industry...we help each other.

I have new friends, fans and advisors now that are from a dozen different countries.

Thanks so much fohboh for making this a restaurant "people" network.

Buying Used

I have successfully migrated from being a server to being an entrepreneur...a little scary. A partner and I have purchased a small 2,500 lease near the water, so seafood and tourists are a natural. The former restaurant and pub owner passed away so we were able to solve their family's problem while making it a reality for us.

The kitchen is a mess though and needs repair, new equipment, a larger hood and new flooring tile. The bar is in pretty good shape though.

Here's my… Continue

I wanted to personally invite you to join our discussions in regards to cheeses at the Cheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us. We could use someone like yourself who could give us some good, positive feedback.

Hi Surfer Girl!,

I've just launched a new website called where the idea is to try as many different types of food from around the world in your local area and I was wondering whether you'd go and have a look, see what you think and perhaps give me some feedback. And if you like it, I'd really appreciate it if you'd start adding a few restaurants that you know of in your area.

Thanks so much
