Eidref: What's happening? What's good dough? Thank you very much for tuning in to another episode of the what's good dough podcast. This is part two of a conversation I had with Kirk, the founder of A Slice of New York. This episode is going to be talking a lot more about employee pull ups. What are they? Are they good for employees? Are they good for restaurant owners? We are going to let you the listener decide. But from what we talked about, personally, I think it's a great idea.
