Jarone Ashkenazi: Avoid New Restaurant Mistakes

Jarone Ashkenazi is a native to Los Angeles with years of experience and a positive reputation in the restaurant industry.

Among the many things that a businessperson like Jarone Ashkenazi helps restaurant operators with is avoiding mistakes. Points like those below are just an example of the valuable advice you might receive from such an advisor:

  • Don’t Get Sidetracked

Restaurant owners wear many hats. This can pull you away from your primary focus on the food and customers, causing quality to drop. Make a to-do list and handle random tasks at a set time each day or week, and devote the rest of your free time to the quality of food and service at your establishment.

  • Don’t Cater to Everyone

Decide what your restaurant does and stick with it. If you cater to everyone, your menu and theme might seem convoluted to customers. Stick to your guns and don’t change what your restaurant is at the first signs of failure.

If you don’t have anyone like Jarone Ashkenazi helping you grow your restaurant, it might be time to find someone.

    BG&A – ONE World Sports KHL alert




    Game 1 of Metallurg Magnitogorsk vs. Lev Prague Set for Friday, April 18 at 9 a.m. EDT; Game 2 Sunday, April 20 at 7 a.m. EDT


    Metallurg Magnitogorsk, the top-ranked team in KHL’s Eastern Conference, and Lev Prague, the third-place team in KHL’s Western Conference, both won their respective Conference Finals by 4 games-to-1 margins and now will meet in the final series of the Kontinental League Gagarin Cup playoffs.

    The Gagarin Cup is the KHL’s post-season tournament, named for famed Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.

    The Gagarin Cup finals start in Magnitogorsk, with Games 1 and 2 set for Friday, April 18 and Sunday, April 20. Then the series—and ONE World Sports’ live and exclusive coverage—shifts to Prague for Games 3 and 4 on April 22 and 24.

    This is the first appearance in the Gagarin Cup Finals for both Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Lev Prague. ONE World Sports commentators for coverage of the series will include Tom Laidlaw, a former defenseman with National Hockey League teams including the New York Rangers.

    “The KHL has emerged as one of the best professional hockey leagues in the world thanks to the high quality of play and superior skill level,” Laidlaw said. “The average NHL fan is aware of Ilya Kovalchuk’s departure to the KHL, but the league has attracted many other stars.”


    ONE World Sports is available via DISH Network, Cablevision’s Optimum TV, Mediacom Communications, Google Fiber and Hawaiian Telcom.

    Our Watch ONE World Sports app is available for download at the iTunes Store and through Google Play.
