“It always seemed disingenuous to me for companies to talk about how well the animals for the food source are treated when their employees have to work two or three jobs.”
Pete Turner, Founder and President, Illegal Pete’s
I used to think that Illegal Pete’s competed with Chipotle and Qdoba. The more I explored Illegal Pete’s, the more it’s clear that Illegal Pete’s is in its own category – great food, sure. Full bar where people really want to hang out? That’s unusual. Voluntarily paying a living wage at a quick serve restaurant – wow, that’s almost unheard of. Pete talks about how and why he made these decisions. You’ll leave the episode a fan of Illegal Pete’s!
