Did you know…

…that Five Guys, the well know restaurant chain is predominantly a family business and was named ‘Five Guys’ because they couldn’t think of anything else at the time of registering the business?  The intention was to change it because they didn’t think it was much good but they never got round to it!  The business now turns over billions and was founded on good ethics, hard work and a focus on quality. I learned this when listening to the founder – Jerry Murrell – talking with Guy Raz on the ‘How I Built This’ podcast, it’s worth a listen…
