VSAG Client News: Founding Farmers Featured in Bloomberg Businessweek


2014 marked the sixth year since the opening of Founding Farmers and it was the biggest and best year yet for this VSAG client.

When a major news publication writes about one of our clients, we are more than excited to shout about it!

We’re pleased to share the Bloomberg Businessweek feature article, The Farm to Table Restaurant Chain,” recently published in their special year-end ”Good Business Issue.”

Businessweek reporter Bob Parks went in-depth for the story, spending two full days with Farmers Restaurant Group Partners and Concept Developers Dan Simons and Mike Vucurevich to learn more about how the restaurants got started, and have since maintained top-of-the-list standing in the greater DC region and on other notable lists. Parks also chatted with VSAG client and NDFU President Mark Watne to learn more about how the restaurants successfully provide fresh, authentic, true American farmhouse-inspired food & drink to guests day after day, year after year – yielding astounding revenues and results. A full photo essay accompanies the article. We’re also pleased to share that the feature article has been covered by other sources like The National, further spreading the word about VSAG and Founding Farmers.

As the flagship Founding Farmers restaurant enters year seven, 2015 will also mark: the fourth year for MoCo’s Founding Farmers, the third year for sister restaurant Farmers Fishers Bakers, and the opening of Founding Farmers Tysons (VA), all overseen by the management and operations team established by the restaurant consultants at VSAG.
