Roble reflects on a tumultuous Season 2.

on Jul 29, 20130

I'm so proud of what my team was able to accomplish this season. We put up some great food and had some great events, except for that one which we were able to fix in the end. We had some difficulties -- me, my sister, Artie, Kiku, and Dan specifically. I'm happy that we were able to navigate our way through these problems and to all come to agreements regarding all of our problems. There will always be problems, but as long as you can work through them while doing a great job for your customers, you are headed in the right direction. We're getting stronger and smarter and learning how to work better as a team. I'd like to thank John Legend and Chrissy Teigen for being amazing clients and having an amazing event with us, which also made for great television. What a perfect season finale!!! I'd like to thank you all for supporting us and watching our show. We love you!

There is a real problem with chef Robles approach to business and that is he is not defining each employees area of expertise to each other, and that he is not holding them accountable for their failures. He needs to hold a meeting before he lands the client, a meeting after he gets the client, a meeting to prep his team on their responsibilities before he starts to cook and plan for the catering, and a meeting after to go over what went wrong and what went well without point fingers. If he approached his business in this way and he would have far fewer problems and mishaps in his catering affair. I have successfully planned many events and I do know that ego's can get in the way, but your ego should not be the only way so therefore you as the business owner need to step back occassionally and reassess all issues headon everytime they occur. Trust me you will be happier and your staff will respect you.

Roble, I get that every party is different, but there are certain systems which should always be in place, so there's less problems goin g in. Every party should have an after meeting, not ohhh the client was happy, so we don't have to talk about what didn't work...was that all for TV or your ego or do know know this already...if this is how you really are, I would NEVER work for you!
