A true expert in the restaurant industry, Founder & CEO Alan L. Gaylin’s passion for restaurants started in Texas at a young age and continued to grow through his college years and early career. In addition to holding positions as Owner/Operator, Director of Operations and Managing Partner for various restaurant companies, he was an important part of the conceptual rebranding of the Houlihan’s restaurant concept, where he served as COO, Sr VP of Operations, and Divisional VP. Gaylin’s passion and experience for restaurateur-ship inspired him to create his version of the ideal restaurant group, and Bread & Butter Concepts was born. Being a restaurateur, creating new concepts that are new to the markets, with ambience and establishing culinary trends is what he loves, and what he gets to do every day.
