Portiillo’s….a Chicago-based Hot Dog and Italian Beef restaurant is opening its first 1950’s themed diner in Wisconsin.

There are key elements in any successful business….Dick Portillo said he focused on three things he had learned in the Marines to grow the business:

  • the value of teamwork
  • the value of organization
  • the value of training

Another key element that creates success: “legendary food and legendary service….not surprisingly created a very large and loyal customer base”.

The icing on the cake for Portillo’s was that it was sold to Berkshire Partners….certainly an astute investor in strong businesses.
