Ep.65- Don Thomas, Platz Realty Group

Who says competitors can’t make great podcast guests? Don Thomas of Platz Realty Group swung by the studio to chat over some Penguin City. But the focus of this conversation wasn’t real estate – it’s his Combine Brothers Italian Restaurant in Hermitage. With fresh bready daily, fresh pasta dinners on Sundays and an upcoming opening Boardman, Don spills the T on how Combine’s got started, where the restaurant industry is headed, and how they plan to take advantage of it.
