Michaelson and Bohn currently work in Pilotworks, a commercial kitchen co-working space. And being fairly new to the food industry, it's there where they get some of their best help and advice.

"They've been able to offer learned advice in terms of staffing, best practices for labor in the kitchen and just how to manage a team," says Bohn in the video. "I don't have the long history of knowing that everything I'm doing is best."
