George is clearly passionate about environmental sustainability and acts as role model for the entire restaurant industry.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
On Tuesday, December 6th, 2011, Atlanta Business RadioX™ host Joyce Bone was joined in-studio by George McKerrow, Jr., CEO and co-founder of Ted’s Montana Grill to discuss the company’s history, mission and future plans. Mr. McKerrow also shared Ted Turner’s vision and what they were accomplishing. He discussed the challenges restaurants face in balancing profit & sustainability, what they can do to help be more environmentally accountable and offered some suggestions on how to improve these businesses as well as the communities they operate within. He shared thoughts on what the green restaurant of the future would look like.
Adam Glasgow, with Waste Pro's MRF division joined the discussion agreeing with McKerrow's assessment that if each individual did the basics of sustainability, society as a whole would benefit greatly, "It is the day to day functions that we take for granted, turning lights off, replacing washers so water doesn't drip, these types of incremental changes are a great place for each individual to start and build from."
For her part, host Joyce Bone was thrilled to have McKerrow on the show as he is a 40-year veteran of the restaurant business. She notes, “Nation’s Restaurant News called George a “dinner-house legend” and credits him with giving birth to an entire casual-dining segment. George is clearly passionate about environmental sustainability and acts as role model for the entire restaurant industry.”
