If you’re a basketball Great like Shaquille O’Neil or a Regular Joe expert advice is a must when starting a restaurant.

Shaq is entering a whole new game in the restaurant and franchise industry.

He needs a full-court press and a talented team to WIN!

One part of the team is brothers Fazil Malik and Frank Malik. They are known for operating a construction company specializing in retail developments, gas stations, convenience stores, quick-serve, and sit-down restaurants.

The other team partner is Noordin Jhaver, CEO of Dew Real Estate Holdings L.L.C., a real estate company and owner/operator of over 50 Sonic restaurants.

“Since we launched our first location in 2018, our goal has been to bring Big Chicken to people across the United States and beyond,” O’Neal said. “With Josh on board, we have big plans and are looking forward to sharing them soon.”

If you are a regular Joe like I was and want to open or are even thinking about opening a restaurant, you’re in the RIGHT place!

I started as a sole proprietor and eventually partnered with others to develop successful businesses.

My goal was to open a food industry business and I eventually opened four!

Not an easy feat but I took on my goal and never looked back.

That’s truly the way to become a successful entrepreneur.

Don’t look back and use your experiences good and bad to move forward.

A Forward Pass Into the Industry

That is the very reason I created Start Your Restaurant Business, to pay my experience forward!

My desire as an entrepreneur is to share my knowledge and experience so others can be successful!

I help others develop their restaurant ideas into a reality.
