Danny Meyer’s Recipe for Success



The secret ingredient to the success of restaurateur Danny Meyer is culture. As his company has evolved from a single restaurant to an empire — including multiple restaurants, the Shake Shack chain, and a venture capital fund — the focus has been as much on how people are treated as on how the food tastes. Meyer’s career provides a case study on how companies can scale slowly while maintaining the culture that has given the company an edge. And whether culture takes the form of being the first to eliminate tipping or advocating for higher wages, it has given Meyer’s company, USHG, a platform to lead.
