Our Pro Business Colorado feature brings us two new perspectives on business, from founding and operating a successful group of auto repair stores, to running casinos in a small mountain town. Each business has it's own challenges as well as opportunities to shine. Our guest host, Dave Tabor of the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry, introduces us to Dean Pisciotta, President of Brakes Plus. Brakes Plus is a family owned, Colorado enterprise which has grown to 67 stores in six states. Our second guest is John East, of Lodge Casino in Blackhawk, Colorado. These two businessmen share insight from their perspective in business.
Be sure to listen to hear Dean Piscotta's take on creating longevity among the managers of their many stores, and his company's reliance on customer feedback to build improvement.
John East explains how even during this decade's most significant economic downturn, Jacobs Entertainment, owner of both Lodge and Gilpin casinos focused on retaining their employees, even if it meant cutting salaries. It's one reason they have nearly 100 employees who have been with the company for 15-20 years.
