Episode 207: Weathering the Storm with the Robert Spencer Hospitality Group

Featuring Paul Shufelt of Robert Spencer Hospitality Group

Listen as a podcast:

For Episode 207 of Amplify Your Business, we’re joined by Paul Shufelt, the founder and Head Chef at the Robert Spencer Hospitality Group. The Robert Spencer Hospitality Group runs six restaurants throughout Edmonton: Workshop Eatery, Hayloft, Woodshed Burgers, The Greenhouse Restaurants at Victoria, Riverside, and Rundle.


During his interview, Paul discusses what success has looked like for him, how he’s managed to open and operate six full-service restaurants and a catering business, and the things that he learned about hospitality through the Pandemic. Unlike many businesses, Paul was able to keep roughly 90% of his employees on staff during the pandemic, through a combination of ingenuity and pivoting the way his restaurants sold food.
