Herndon, Virginia and Stoughton, Massachusetts: In this segment of the show, we go into the trenches to meet Kevin R. Abt, the founder of Take Out Taxi and more recently (2006), he started, runs, and is growing Restaurants to you.com.

Opportunities to start and grow a business exist everywhere. It takes courage, tenacity, thoughtfulness, long hours, and just plain hard work. Those who are looking for shortcuts are destined to fail.

Kevin Abt, founderKevin R. Abt does not take shortcuts but he does make it easier for people to follow in his footsteps by creating a franchise model of his business.

Although Kevin started Take Out Taxi, he always had partners. So, with this first concept, he cashed out and followed his children as they went off to their universities in the Boston area. He advised others, served on boards, and did the lecture circuit. But he was still young, so he started up again!

During his tenure with Takeout Taxi Franchising System, Inc., the company grew to include more than 225 locations nationwide, delivering more than $250M worth of prepared food from over 3,500 restaurants. History will forever know Kevin as the founder, former chairman and CEO of the country's first multi-restaurant delivery company.
