Re: “Mangia Mangia for sale?

On many occasions the main reason for owners to have their restaurants rescued is so that they can get the publicity, new ideas and menus, and most importantly, the makeovers with new equipment. Then, once the turnaround has occurred, they sell it for every nickel that they can get. In many cases, they already have their minds made up for selling the place as soon as they can. Many of these owners are burnt out from the struggle, their debt is overwhelming, and they know that they are waaaaay out of their depth for successfully operating a restaurant in the long run. So, whether it's honest or dishonest to get Gordon Ramsey to come in with the idea of setting up the restaurant for success, getting out of the business is really the ultimate goal from the beginning. Besides, it's human nature to save oneself when the handwriting is so clearly on the wall, and the show gets what they came for, and everybody wins. Sort of.
