A badass one, too, from what I saw on social media. Damn. Coulda gotten my wookiee on. But lucky for me, and you, Kevin Bednarz of Ashburn Pub makes sure they have a shit-ton of these themed shindigs (Personally, I can’t wait for the Snow Day party happening soon). So, that’s secret #1 to being awesome. Have a lot of parties that surround things people are truly into. Secret #2? Treat and pay your staff well. The Pub has an average turnover rate of 2- 5% for staff in the restaurant and bar industry. For those of you who haven’t worked in a restaurant, that rarely happens and is something to be insanely proud of. The national average is 70-80%. Kevin is on to something over there when it comes to staffing. When I arrived, he was getting his holiday on for the next seasonal round of fun, putting up lights and greenery around an epic Santa chalk mural that he drew himself. Oh, yeah…he’s an incredible artist, too (Fun Fact: Gary Vaynerchuck has Kevin’s art in his office!). Kevin gets to mix his passion for art with his passion for people at the Ashburn Pub.
