On this week’s episode of the Atlanta Small Business Profile, our host, Ted Jenkin, sits down with Ryan and Daniel Pernice, co-owners of Coalition Food and Beverage in downtown Alpharetta, GA. Metro Atlanta is an area full of foodies, and people who like to eat. As a part of RO Hospitality, Coalition Food and Beverage offers a place for families and friends to gather together and enjoy expressive, modern American cuisine, carefully crafted drinks, warm hospitality, and lively ambiance.
Ryan and Daniel grew up working in kitchens and Ryan, in particular, was cooking as early as 14 years old. Spending so much time in that environment, he says you either end up loving or hating the industry. In Ryan’s case, he loved it and really saw no other career path than the one he is on now. As for going into business with his brother, Daniel says there have been lots of arguments, but also lots of resolutions, and that wouldn’t be possible without a history of trust and commitment between them.
Ryan and Daniel also have their separate spheres of influence in the restaurant; areas where they individually shine. Those complimentary skill sets and open lines of communication make business life more efficient for the brothers. At the end of the day, they are running a business and have to make tough decisions.
As for customers, patrons of the restaurant want a customizable experience regardless of the concept. The restaurants that will continue to win will offer tailored experiences, according to Ryan, and that is executed daily at Coalition Food and Beverage.
