Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

Stephani Robson Restaurant Unstoppable Podcast

With excitement, allow me to introduce to you today's guest: Emeritus Faculty of The Hotel School of Cornell University, Stephani Robson. Until her recent retirement, Dr. Stephani Robson was a member of the faculty at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration for almost 30 years, where she taught literally thousands of students and executives about development and planning for hotels and restaurants. Prior to joining academia, she designed commercial kitchens for just about every kind of operation: restaurants, hotels, airports, hospitals, universities, and more.

This is part 2 of 3 of the Kitchen Design and Layout workshop. See part 1 right here.
