In this podcast, Dorchak discusses how he grew up in a restaurant business started by his grandfather, which was handed down to his father and now he is a part-owner. At a very early age, he understood the principles of quality food preparation and leadership, traits that help him tremendously as a restaurateur. Listen as Dorchak offers wise advice to those dreaming of opening their own restaurant business, starting with knowing the company from the ground up.

“Ryan generously shares his knowledge of the restaurant industry, and how extremely difficult it is to operate a successful operation,” states Mike Rivera, co-founder of Top-Tier Tutoring and interviewer for Ear on Careers. He continues, “I was surprised to learn of the thin margins and long hours, and I’m sure our listeners will find Ryan’s information invaluable when deciding whether to pursue a career as a restaurateur.”

During the podcast, Dorchak discusses how his degree in marketing, with a minor in finance, from Fairleigh Dickenson University in New Jersey has helped him grow the third-generation business. Even in this economy, Cloverleaf Tavern continues to prosper, thanks to innovative leadership from Dorchak. While his hours are long and he has had to develop his management skills, Dorchak has a passion for his demanding industry that he explains is much more involved than simply being a good cook.
