Empire Example 1
Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes
Since my patna Tony wanted to know how a empire gets started. I have a example that I use for my own blueprint to understand how long things take and what moves I will probably have to make myself. The empire takes more than a day because it’s truly a in depth plan of accumulation. Accumulating smaller things that lead to bigger things and then those bigger things turn into the Empire. But, we are all capable of following the blueprint if we truly want to.
So in the first Empire Example I present to you Darden Restaurants! If you click on the name you’ll go right to their history of how the first guy just had a 25 seat restaurant in Georgia. He didn’t do anything special but have in mind that he could build more. But, instead of having small town thinking this guy went on to acquire other people’s restaurants which became the Empire it is today.
I know some of you are shocked because you didn’t know all these restaurants that you’ll probably be going to tonight were all under the same umbrella. When you dig around a bit you start noticing that Kats are not into just one line of business as they are trying to dominate a whole sector. Althought Darden seems focused on restaurants you can best believe they have ideas on taking over areas that might be a good connection into what they have now.
Now I found out about Darden because they have a Brother named Clarence Otis as the CEO and usually he is on CNBC. Now I’m sure some of you want to know how he got to be CEO and ME I wanted to know who owned Darden Restaurants. Now I’m glad for the Brother but in the end my intent is to start my own Empire and probably lean on him in the future for some great operational information.
Either way Enjoy! Check out the timeline and check out the whole site. You’ll find that from humble beginnings and the willingness to think big this kat turned his business into a Empire! It’s what we all should be thinking as that will allow you to make it through the time no one thought your idea could be the seed to so much more!
