Undercover Boss - East Side Mario's S2 E10 (Canadian TV series)

  • Published on Jan 3, 2014
  • John Rothschild is the CEO of Prime Restaurants Inc., which has over 140 casual dining restaurants in Canada and the U.S., including East Side Mario's. He goes undercover in the restaurant in a bid to check the front lines of the business. With the explosion of family dining restaurants, East Side Mario's is fighting for customers and Rothschild is worried that his brand is starting to look dated. But his own staff and customers have surprising solutions to reviving business, and when he reunites with the people he worked alongside, he makes a big difference to both their personal and work lives.[25]

    I would hope that after experiencing the difficulty of the jobs the companies employees perform, that they would raise their workforces wages at least 50 cents an hour, or even better up to a dollar. They deserve it.

    This show is OK. What I'd really like to see, though, is the entire "executive team" do the same, a d then the division managers. A LOT of people would learn a lot more, lines of communication mighg open...who knows. I't also like to see what we xaw on some of the US episodes, where the reveal was company wide - so everyone learned something. Finally, 4 people [out of how many thousand?] got to be "Queen for a Day". [Very old tv reference] That's OK, but I'd like to see real changes in what goes on fir everyone! Too many steps, or too many dishes? Fix it! Renovations needed? Every employee should know why!
    This could be such a brilliant, business - changing show, ut they don't take it far enough. Sigh

    It is the Best thing I have ever seen from any Rothschild. If we roughly say they are given 20Gs each that would be 80Gs which is not much to give to those who are actually doing the work. But I appreciate the gesture. Massa need to be appreciative of those doing the WORK. Donlad Trump need to take not a page but the whole damn book.
    For tbose who might have employees, what would it take to just make a Call every now and then off Work time to ask, how you and Yours are doing? . Show some human Compassion. Mr. Rothschild, I want to thank you for your human heart. Peace

    When I realized this CEO was a Rothschild, I was hesitant to even watch it. I expected him to be brutal because, with a few of the mentors I listened to for several years, there wasn't much good said about that family. In my perception, through those particular mentors, the Rothschild's were nothing but trouble, psychopathic killers that wanted depopulation in full effect to kill off as many "useless eaters" as possible. As odd as this will sound, he was human, not the Terminator! I expected him to be the Terminator, in all honesty.

    Absolutely agree with the female employee "The Head office's heads are up their asses". This CEO is arrogant and totally incompetent about anything in his company and is the type of employer, who if not on tv, would have fired that young lady on the spot,no doubt about it. The company is likely failing financially and he get's a plump bonus and a huge salary...Really! Duh!

      Yeah, and when the gal was crying thanks about the $15,000~and Luke when receiving the car~and the CEO says ``you deserve it,'' he should have said, ``you're worth a whole lot more than that, but that's the best we could do for now, but I'm going to continue looking for ways to reward you.'' I'm just saying, employers somehow remain tight (bottom line necessitating,) and at the same time, try to make themselves look even more generous than they already are.

      Yeah, early in, I'm thinking this is the most unskilled person in the highest-skilled position of any of these episodes. (Putting an accountant in a cook's position?) Why doesn't he just rove around and order entrees in disguise, and taste them?

      @Melissa Gahn One of the things Sony puts out is music. That doesn't mean the CEO should be able to sing.

    To all commenting about the use of gloves in the kitchen, I can tell you that a real chef does not wear gloves, he washes his hands.

    • Debra Prince
      Debra Prince 28 days ago

      I agree. Before all this glove wearing started I worked at a Subway. There was a sink right in the front. We would make a sandwich, ring it up, wash our hands and make another sandwich etc. No one ever forgot to wash their hands and no one ever got sick. Gloves are a pain in the butt and give a false sense of security. I don't wear gloves at home when I cook and no one ever got sick from my kitchen either. Although, seeing some of the people nowadays who work in restaurants, I suppose wearing gloves might help a bit, who knows.

    • Black_Dead_Spider
      Black_Dead_Spider Month ago

      pknight212 read up on why chefs avoid gloves. As a chef I know it is more unheigenic to wear gloves because people believe because their wearing gloves their hands are clean. So they wear the gloves for a long time where as if they were not wearing gloves they would of washed their hands several times
