This week we watched as NBC‘s America’s Next Great Restaurant chose a winner in Jamawn Woods of Soul Daddy. After the elimination, Joey Galluzzi explains why his meatball concept should have won. Keep reading to hear what Joey had to say!
America’s Next Great Restaurant crowned Jamawn Woods the winner this week while Joey Galluzzi sat and watched extremely disappointed. In his post elimination interview with NBC, Joey thinks his concept should have won as he said “I gave the investors a concept that has national appeal and can be developed on a huge scale at a low cost, allowing for higher than average profit margins in the food service industry. Unfortunately, my lack of experience in the restaurant business cost me in the end. The investors all agreed my food was awesome, so I believe they could have certainly lent their expertise and we could have all worked together to execute my concept flawlessly and successfully.”
Joey goes on to say that the show taught him to never give up on your dreams as he added “I have continued to work my financial services business, but “America’s Next Great Restaurant” made me realize more than ever how I must fulfill my life’s passion and dream, so I have been refining my concept and have enrolled in the Culinary Arts program at Le Cordon Bleu to better educate myself in food service.” My guess is we may see “Saucy Balls” aka “Brooklyn Meatball Company” in business soon! Did the investors make the right decision? Do you think Joey should have won? Comment below and share your thoughts with us!
