Ten Years, Sixty, Houston discussed on The Michael Berry Show


So i got a email from a fellow that was in the restaurant business and they manufacture a restaurant equipment and all sorts of stuff for the restaurant industry. And i'm always interested when people actually make things in this country and so the email the the his. It's called texaco on specialty products. So i sent a memo said. Let me be very clear. You said make you actually manufacture restaurant equipment here. Or do you distribute which is okay. I just wanna be wanna be clear. And so i asked him a bunch of questions by his business because there's interesting and he sent back and he said i've copied my wife here because i think she likes you more than she likes me. It always amuses me. Because people will never say i'm the biggest fan of your show. They will women will say their husband is an husbands will say their wife is. Because i think people just don't want to say that they're that biggest fan they will say that that their spouses But i thought about that. Because i was thinking this week we were talking about having a few partners of the show who are sort of Who who can sponsor a segment or who can sponsor something in be tied to that and the goal being to take a small to mid size company and help them get to be really big. And so i thought well. I've been thinking of someone to be our partner and do an on air Restaurant review and so when i go to restaurants which i love to do Do a restaurant review from somebody. That's in the food service business either. They manufacture food service equipment or cisco which is a houston based company that supported me when iran. And i love our benny keith Because i've got a dear friend. Sue straughn over there or i know there's people who provide a Supplies products you. Name it to the Food and beverage industry. That would want to be tied to restaurants. And then i would focus more on doing more restaurant reviews because i think it's fun and i enjoy talking about where i went for restaurant and some of you may not all of you enjoy hearing about new restaurants just like you like hearing about movies and some of you Will go to the restaurant and go places. Expensive michael are why you talked about that. Place to ha- you're not required to go there you it's just how about you hear it and go.
