Episode 60: Family Business & Doing It Your Way

In this episode of the Family Business Show, host Michael Palumbos chats with Danielle McCurry, the entrepreneurial force behind Rise N Shine Diner and Loaded in Syracuse, New York. Danielle shares her compelling journey from a teenage mother to a successful restaurateur, emphasizing the importance of family in her business endeavors.

Danielle's story begins with her early experiences in the restaurant industry, influenced by her family's background in food service. She recounts the challenges she faced as a young mother and her transition from working in various restaurants to taking a leap into the office world, which didn't quite suit her dynamic personality.

The turning point in Danielle's career came when Peter Hatzis, the original owner of Rise N Shine Diner, recognized her potential and, facing a terminal illness, decided to pass on his diner to her. This unexpected opportunity propelled Danielle into the world of business ownership, where she learned to navigate the complexities of running a restaurant.

Despite the hurdles, including the pandemic, Danielle successfully transformed Rise N Shine Diner and later created Loaded, a fast-casual eatery specializing in gourmet burgers, fries, and mac 'n' cheese. She emphasizes the importance of innovation and adapting to customer preferences, which has been key to her success.

Family plays a crucial role in Danielle's business, with various family members contributing to the growth and operation of her restaurants. However, she acknowledges the challenges that come with working closely with relatives, emphasizing the need for clear roles and communication.

Looking ahead, Danielle has ambitious plans for expansion and diversification within the hospitality industry, aiming to establish a presence across the United States while maintaining the unique character and high standards of her establishments.

This episode highlights the resilience, creativity, and family-centric approach that have defined Danielle McCurry's journey in the restaurant business, offering valuable insights for aspiring entrepreneurs and family business owners.

00:21:28.080 --> 00:21:45.270

Michael Palumbos: I just think this is just a fantastic you know idea that you put together at loaded and rise and shine you know when we went in there, you could just it is it doesn't feel like any place else there's nothing that i've ever seen like it is very cool.

00:22:44.940 --> 00:22:56.580

Rise N Shine Danielle : Our you know our good times I absolutely wholeheartedly trust my family, I mean I would not, you know the the easiest thing for me is to put my sister, and I put her in my financial.

Michael Palumbos: Oh it's true we talked about it all the time that's you know I worked with them.



00:23:59.040 --> 00:24:03.960

Michael Palumbos: And then, when I want to do something outside of work, who am I calling i'm probably doing a lot with them.



00:24:04.080 --> 00:24:08.910

Rise N Shine Danielle : yeah they're just you know they're up your butt all day but um.



00:24:10.140 --> 00:24:15.750

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know a lot a lot is you know we they tell you the truth, sometimes you don't want to hear.



00:24:16.710 --> 00:24:18.480

Rise N Shine Danielle : Sometimes they tell you too much.



00:24:18.840 --> 00:24:22.050

Rise N Shine Danielle : And sometimes they should just you know quiet.



00:24:23.040 --> 00:24:25.410

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know, so we might get into some times, where.



00:24:26.430 --> 00:24:38.790

Rise N Shine Danielle : we've probably said too much or Rebecca in front of employees, like things like that shouldn't happen and then like my fiance who I all the world to to as well um he has done 101%.



00:24:39.270 --> 00:24:46.230

Rise N Shine Danielle : of things, recently, you know when since we've been together to help me grow this business and he ended up partnering with me for rise and shine.



00:24:46.920 --> 00:24:54.030

Rise N Shine Danielle : To help me grow, but he always says like we even tried like his kids came in and portcullis little bit um.



00:24:55.020 --> 00:25:09.900

Rise N Shine Danielle : I mean, he caused enough criticism which we should have just a harsh word, but you do see from that one side, like you, shouldn't have you know family, sometimes it looks like they get better things, and you know and the employees think they can you know.



00:25:11.010 --> 00:25:22.110

Rise N Shine Danielle : They should to and all in, and I mean it's it's hard so hard so I tried to make sure for my absolute point of view of my my team not my family, you know, and I say.



00:25:22.560 --> 00:25:34.680

Rise N Shine Danielle : What do you want, what are you seeing what's your perception and then I go from there, so if my daughter looks like she's getting any kind of you know, special you know privileges, I never want she doesn't.



00:25:35.190 --> 00:25:50.940

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know use your there as an employee as well you know you should get the same response yeah she's been in the business a little longer, but you know it's not fair, you know everyone wants to grow as well in the company and I just want to make sure they all grow equally you know.



00:25:52.080 --> 00:25:59.250

Michael Palumbos: I always refer that to are you a business run by a family or a family that happens to run a business.



00:25:59.640 --> 00:26:03.900

Michael Palumbos: Right so it's you know, or is it is it family decisions.



00:26:04.140 --> 00:26:05.700

Michael Palumbos: being made inside the business.



00:26:05.730 --> 00:26:14.070

Michael Palumbos: Or is it a business decisions made by the family and what you're saying is do your best to make sure that their business decisions.



00:26:14.250 --> 00:26:22.080

Rise N Shine Danielle : Yes, my family would tell you on they only give me their opinions and they're very few and far between now because.



00:26:23.460 --> 00:26:32.730

Rise N Shine Danielle : I think we've grown so so big and so fast that they saw a lot of it came from you know what came from me originally so.



00:26:34.560 --> 00:26:45.990

Rise N Shine Danielle : They don't want to interfere with what's going on, I think I think they're just like Okay, but if i'm doing something bad they're gonna obviously but I try not to make too many decisions with me, you know so it's fair it's fair.



00:26:47.520 --> 00:26:56.040

Michael Palumbos: When you're looking at what you're trying to accomplish today, so now you're running two restaurants talking about a third one on its way.



00:26:56.400 --> 00:26:56.670




00:26:58.050 --> 00:27:05.280

Michael Palumbos: franchising or new locations and all kinds of things that are in your head, what are your top three.



00:27:06.480 --> 00:27:09.360

Michael Palumbos: biggest frustrations pains obstacles what's.



00:27:10.890 --> 00:27:13.770

Michael Palumbos: What are the things that you know right now you're struggling with.



00:27:14.340 --> 00:27:21.060

Rise N Shine Danielle : Right now, I think everybody's struggling with everything the inflation, you know everything going up pricing.



00:27:21.810 --> 00:27:27.120

Rise N Shine Danielle : I mean i'm not just talking about in the restaurants i'm talking about building the restaurants, I mean the Labor.



00:27:27.690 --> 00:27:34.500

Rise N Shine Danielle : deliver for us in the restaurants and I gotta say maybe it's just us and move the popularity of the restaurants, but we did very well you know knock on wood.



00:27:35.340 --> 00:27:42.840

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know, once one was out for anybody didn't want to say that we had another one came in, it was just fun very good, but construction oh.



00:27:44.010 --> 00:27:53.130

Rise N Shine Danielle : i'm not i'm not in construction, I read, I was want to say, thank God, but it's crazy there, the problem is is they don't have enough people.



00:27:53.520 --> 00:28:06.930

Rise N Shine Danielle : And they have so much work now because everyone had a little cash another on overflow and I can't get a plumber or electrician if you paid me to you know it's just like that hard.



00:28:07.500 --> 00:28:22.530

Rise N Shine Danielle : And then the material material the stuff that sitting out on a boat somewhere i'm not even sure like a six months to eight months for stuff to come in it's crazy, so this rush hour ability right now honestly took.



00:28:23.070 --> 00:28:35.670

Rise N Shine Danielle : We started it in June, or at least started the ball rolling, and it is now April we've probably looking at July, you know yeah.



00:28:36.030 --> 00:28:37.020

Michael Palumbos: So you're.



00:28:37.050 --> 00:28:38.340

Michael Palumbos: 30 months.



00:28:38.460 --> 00:28:39.990

Michael Palumbos: back up and running.



00:28:40.140 --> 00:28:46.230

Rise N Shine Danielle : yeah and and we're talking about just sitting around twiddling our thumbs for for our plate, you know.



00:28:47.400 --> 00:28:49.440

Rise N Shine Danielle : A big chunk of that you know waiting.



00:28:49.830 --> 00:28:50.010




00:28:51.960 --> 00:28:53.250

Michael Palumbos: What else, are you juggling.



00:28:56.220 --> 00:29:00.570

Rise N Shine Danielle : We are again to get another concept from i'm going to talk about it.



00:29:03.030 --> 00:29:12.660

Rise N Shine Danielle : Sarah has got to stop stop and and then duplicate, so we are you know building this corporate office, so that we have the.



00:29:13.380 --> 00:29:18.900

Rise N Shine Danielle : resources to continue to run all the restaurants and make more so.



00:29:19.260 --> 00:29:31.800

Rise N Shine Danielle : On the you know so that fourth one once I get I gotta get this one, open and then I think I want to hit that next one, and I will real fast, because I have all the most amazing people on our team right now that's going to.



00:29:32.400 --> 00:29:37.890

Rise N Shine Danielle : How run that you know that show so it's that this one's gonna be fun, this is the Italian.



00:29:37.950 --> 00:29:45.150

Rise N Shine Danielle : So okay now one of the things that people talk about right now was you know it's hard to get people.



00:29:45.180 --> 00:29:46.800

Michael Palumbos: it's hard to get employees.



00:29:47.100 --> 00:29:48.450

Michael Palumbos: How are you combating.



00:29:48.480 --> 00:29:50.940

Michael Palumbos: That, in your industry.



00:29:51.450 --> 00:30:00.090

Rise N Shine Danielle : it's it's not it's like I said I um I think we're super blessed i'm not going to complain about it um.



00:30:00.960 --> 00:30:10.470

Rise N Shine Danielle : I think we know enough people and have enough people in our in our group, that if we don't have one someone knows someone and they're looking for someone and they want to come over here, and the other thing is is.



00:30:11.370 --> 00:30:20.490

Rise N Shine Danielle : I did try this new saying since obviously we have the resources to do this, we are starting a lot more and team building so.



00:30:21.090 --> 00:30:30.300

Rise N Shine Danielle : When I say that out mean like high picking you up and singing kumbaya I mean like we're going to put a package together so when you come here as an employee you feel.



00:30:30.780 --> 00:30:41.760

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know you feel part of the team one year you grow as a company, we have for having 401k and like crypto my you know buying into this, we have health insurance, we have.



00:30:42.270 --> 00:30:51.960

Rise N Shine Danielle : um you know we pay more than the average Joe and most of the local restaurants and we give you paid time off within a year.



00:30:52.470 --> 00:31:03.330

Rise N Shine Danielle : And I mean every day, I went down to the dishwasher where that's not you know usual for restaurants, I think, giving back to your team who helps you.



00:31:03.900 --> 00:31:11.370

Rise N Shine Danielle : Obviously they make these restaurants run as huge and that's I think they see that you know I think people see.



00:31:12.270 --> 00:31:26.790

Rise N Shine Danielle : They have more opportunities here, and you know and a bigger, I know that you know more things that they can they can achieve here and then just coming in and washing dishes are us and tables and moving on you know yep.



00:31:27.330 --> 00:31:41.760

Michael Palumbos: But so basically you took a whole new concept for some for the restaurant itself and maybe add an experience, but you have done the same thing and that same culture you're doing with your employees and making it a different experience for them.



00:31:42.150 --> 00:31:47.430

Rise N Shine Danielle : Absolutely yeah I mean we wouldn't be here, without them, you know it's it's the same it goes the same I and.



00:31:47.820 --> 00:32:00.480

Rise N Shine Danielle : that's just coming from me because i've dishwasher and I was the server and you know and i've done everything in the industry, for years, but I come from that place first, before I come from up here, you know.

Michael Palumbos: let's see.



00:36:15.540 --> 00:36:18.720

Michael Palumbos: So you go to that point thinking about.



00:36:20.160 --> 00:36:20.760

Michael Palumbos: what's that.



00:36:22.860 --> 00:36:24.450

Rise N Shine Danielle : I guess is and you lose your spot.



00:36:26.190 --> 00:36:42.300

Michael Palumbos: I had three ideas that wants to just popped into my head and I was like burning through which one that you know we're going to go with but let's talk about your your potential transition and potential retirement yes you're never going to retire.



00:36:42.420 --> 00:36:44.310

Rise N Shine Danielle : I got that feeling yeah.



00:36:44.850 --> 00:36:55.140

Rise N Shine Danielle : But Oh well, I guess what it would be like, for me, would probably be more of just traveling you know traveling to see where we are and what we're doing, but then you know i'll take some time off.



00:36:55.560 --> 00:37:06.540

Rise N Shine Danielle : I will, I promise I will do that i'll learn to enjoy um I guess the rewards of working your ass off your whole life, you know, and I don't that's one thing I.



00:37:06.990 --> 00:37:12.570

Rise N Shine Danielle : Like I really, really wanted to do that for my parents, you know, make sure my mom says order and now having fun so.



00:37:12.810 --> 00:37:21.000

Rise N Shine Danielle : But my dad was one that was that hard worker and never stop never took the time off and now he's in retirement, I had a little bit more control of that because he did come here to work.



00:37:21.630 --> 00:37:28.560

Rise N Shine Danielle : And I know he won't stop but i'm like Okay, some of the home, you know okay go fishing hey there's a trip, I heard about.



00:37:29.160 --> 00:37:38.910

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know why don't you go there, you know so i'm pushing him and I think he's starting to feel it and i'm like that's what we all should do I should never work yourself to death or work yourself to your dad you know.



00:37:39.660 --> 00:37:47.550

Rise N Shine Danielle : You need to enjoy life, you really do you know, so I hope to get there, right now, this is, I think my time that i'm supposed to work my ass off.



00:37:48.960 --> 00:37:57.780

Rise N Shine Danielle : Sorry, I think we know you're when when the sun shines you make a now the sun is shining So it is time, though, it is time to make a.



00:37:58.650 --> 00:37:59.520

Michael Palumbos: um I.



00:38:05.550 --> 00:38:15.660

Michael Palumbos: Think I got you just somebody else's getting ready to you know work somebody else's working in a family business that.



00:38:17.640 --> 00:38:27.240

Michael Palumbos: is struggling with family in the business or just trying to you know decide on these concepts, or you know, whatever they're working through.



00:38:28.080 --> 00:38:33.480

Michael Palumbos: What is your advice, for you know how do you communicate with family members, how do.



00:38:34.590 --> 00:38:35.220

Rise N Shine Danielle : I you know.



00:38:36.900 --> 00:38:44.280

Rise N Shine Danielle : I gotta say the biggest thing it's tough, but I think each one of the family members need to know their role i'm being very.



00:38:45.360 --> 00:38:50.130

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know stick, you know something like stay in your lane kind of thing like yes you're there for.



00:38:50.790 --> 00:38:57.120

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know, mental and moral support as a family member but remember like unless it's something super bad you know, like.



00:38:57.600 --> 00:39:05.190

Rise N Shine Danielle : coming up with the concepts if that's your role cool but like coming out there, and you know, trying to give your opinions on everything, I think that.



00:39:05.580 --> 00:39:11.670

Rise N Shine Danielle : It hinders too much on family family members love your opinion and hate them all in the same breath, you know, so I feel like.



00:39:12.450 --> 00:39:19.920

Rise N Shine Danielle : Do your thing help how you're supposed to help it don't don't push don't push the limits, because, just like anyone, no one wants to be.



00:39:20.460 --> 00:39:32.100

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know, then you have invites and whatever you know I just think I think I grew my family grew on because they did they my sister she knows she's like I know when to just be quiet.



00:39:32.700 --> 00:39:37.770

Rise N Shine Danielle : You know what I mean and not that i'm like you know shut up Tara but it's more like.



00:39:38.640 --> 00:39:50.040

Rise N Shine Danielle : She knows when maybe I have an employee that's that you know, can do that, I have a team Member that's going to be able to take care of that situation I don't need your opinion about it, you know you know, but on.



00:39:51.450 --> 00:39:57.000

Rise N Shine Danielle : You just kind of work together, you know you just really got to figure out each other, just like in any relationship your family's the same.



00:39:57.810 --> 00:40:05.610

Rise N Shine Danielle : Even with like my fiance we fight all the time, but it's back and forth, and what kind of knowing where we go like okay I got this right you got this you know you just got.
