Restauranteur Jessie Votary is the fearless leader, mastermind, and general manager of Ramshackle Industries and all five of their worker-owned restaurants the company manages in Stratford, including their flagship, The Red Rabbit.
Votary takes us “down the rabbit hole” in this episode of Bonn Park with Sara Geidlinger and Marshall Ward as she candidly pulls back the curtain on finding investors, pivoting to survive a pandemic, kitchens, customers, and the blood, sweat, and tears that come with close-knit relationships and building community around a vision.
She also raves about her talented chefs and mixologists, Southern-style comfort foods like Colonel Collins’ fried chicken and waffles, and the joy of running farm-oriented, locally-sourced restaurants, run by workers, owned by workers, and shared with the community.
