John Lane

The Winking Lizard Tavern
John B. Lane
VP of Operations
The Winking Lizard

The food industry is large - and competitive. It can also be tough when circumstances beyond your control - like a losing baseball team - interfere.

But John Lane and the Winking Lizard crew have steadily grown to 12 locations and 1000 employees.

While the one-location places can throw all their focus on that restaurant and the big boys can operate hundreds of locations, growing as a middle tier player has some challenges.

John Lane has learned a lot over the years and his advice may translate to your business too.

In this interview you'll hear about the Winking Lizard's growth and plans for the future. And John will tell us how he, a former vodka and tonic drinker, was transformed into a Beermeister and is helping to turn blue-collar drinkers on to beers of the world.
