The Hospitality Gene with Neal Lewis from Turner Hospitality Group

Turner Hospitality Group owns and operates four very well-known and successful restaurants in South Georgian Bay - Twist Cocktail + Kitchen, Magnone's Italian Kitchen, Winifred's English Pub and Mother Tongue. This week, we spoke to their VP of Hospitality, Neal Lewis, who tells us about the past, the present, and the future of the industry in the area.
