I can't think of anyone that embodies the term "hustle", more than Chef Zach Meloy.
After working alongside chefs Kevin Taylor and Sean Yontz in Denver, and Gerry Klaskala and Jay Swift in Atlanta, Zach and wife Christina, decided to started PushStart Kitchen, an underground supper club, in a rented art studio at the Goat Farm in Atlanta. PushStart Kitchen garnered local, regional and national recognition, a membership list of over 5,200 members and had been featured on several television programs including TBS’ program Trends With Benefits and Food Network’s Chopped. After feeding 100+ guests per week through the supper club, they decided to bring their passion to a new brick and mortar space, and the restaurant Better Half was born. To start Better Half, Zach used a kickstarter campaign to help crowd fund the opening of the restaurant, which met its goal in under one week. As the team called it, Better Half was “the restaurant Atlanta built.”
If you've ever thought about opening your own restaurant, or had a dream that you just couldn't let go of, come hear Zach's story and get motivated to make the impossible, possible!
