  • RG: You all know this guy, Bob Farrell. Bob gave us new images for customer service. Images he’s going to refresh your memory on. You probably don’t know that Bob was given the distinction of the MUFSO operator of the year in 1972, the second year of the award!... I’ll bet you didn’t know Bob was given the Horatio Alger award by none other then Norman Vincent Peale himself… The list of those award recipients are a who’s who of Americana. If you thought his restaurant work stopped with Farrell’s, you’re way off. A few years after his big sale to Marriott, Bob co-founded Pacific Coast Restaurants in his home town of Portland, Ore. This began another 20 year chapter. That’s where we met.
