“I was just there to eat,” Schneider joked. “Todd really cares about people, you know, and he cares about food most…these people are struggling in their restaurant.”
The Hollywood actor went on to say the business owners featured on “Restaurant Recovery” have put their “heart and soul” for years into their work and expressed the “emotional” project was great to be a part of.
“To give them a chance just to get back to just breaking even and to make some money, it just brought tears to their eyes,” Schneider told the co-hosts. “You cannot help but be emotionally involved with these people and Todd really was able to make a difference for each of these restaurants…I was amazed.”
Graves added he helped “great restaurant owners” launch new concepts and ideas that assisted them through the pandemic.
“Support small businesses, family-owned in your neighborhood,” Graves and Schneider strongly encouraged.
