So George Shinn the super rich businessman is now going to be a restaurant owner in Jonesborough? Wonder what the real deal is with this guy??? Why here, and why a little hole in the wall restaurant. He is already on his second manager and hasn't even opened the doors yet! Just seems fishy to me...

Well... If you read the entire post you will see I never said one negative word about he or the business, so no I do not have a personal problem with him. I am however curious, as I stated. I am somewhat confused as to why it would upset you though? I believe you are misunderstanding the subject of my post, curiosity alone...

Most individuals involved in business have a model they follow that is comparable to their previous ventures. I am curious to see if this is a precursor to a larger venture in the Jonesborough area for him. As to the comment about having two managers, just odd that they would change management before getting to the point of opening. sorry to offend, but I am sure you were just looking for a fight anyway.

You can find information on George Shinn by Googling "Court TV". If I remember correctly, his nephew was in a rehab facility and he met a woman visitor there with whom he had some type of relationship. Anyway, his wife of many years divorced him, and the woman sued him. I am thinking he won.
