22. Brian Malarkey: From Top Chef to 15-Time Restaurateur

Brian Malarkey first made a name for himself on Bravo’s Top Chef, but the boisterous TV personality, host, and soon-to-be food product innovator has delivered big on the restaurant scene as the mastermind behind 15 concepts and 35 different establishments across the US.

A master of both casual and fine dining, Brian has been at the helm of countless uniquely curated restaurant experiences, and he’s remained steadfast in his mission: Take care of people. 

The ability to open and sustain successful restaurant concepts has been tested more than ever this past year, and Brian is here to dish on the good, the bad and the wildly surprising elements of seeing an idea from conceptualization to brick-and-mortar and beyond. 

In this episode Brian and Kelly chat about:

  • How Brian got started in the restaurant industry and his three non-negotiables for opening and operating a successful restaurant
  • Brian’s zero-failure rate and how he has even successfully navigated the global health crisis
  • How Brian raised more than $100k in relief efforts for his employees through online efforts
  • Brian’s unique connection with professional skateboarder and entrepreneur, Tony Hawk
  • The true heart and simplicity behind hospitality that can be applied anytime, anywhere
