At the most recent Family Business Legacy Series event, Canlis Restaurant co-owner Mark Canlis sat down with partner Joe Weinstein. Mark and his business partner and brother Brian are third-generation owners of the iconic Seattle restaurant.
Much of the discussion focused on the mission of the business during the COVID pandemic. Canlis has been extraordinary in its creative and out-of-the-box approaches to keeping its employees engaged and employed. He observed that the pandemic served as an opportunity for the business to change. Mark also shared his and Brian's work in management and ownership succession, observing that it remains ongoing.
In all, Mark's comments show an open, thoughtful, and curious approach to viewing the business, the communities it serves, and the family that supports it. You can view a complimentary recording of the program below.
