JR is loyal to his employees if he likes them.

Loyalty to the fans has been missing, though, these past 40 years.  Bigly!

I certainly wouldn’t be using Big Hurt as a business consultant.

Doesn't he own a few successful restaurants?

The one in Berwyn has gone through multiple closing / rebrandings.  He also had a failed music label amongst other things.  His reputation as a business man is pretty poor.

Restaurants are tough to make successful, especially if not chain affiliated. But he probably could of picked a better town for this restaurant than Berwyn.

We went to BHB in Berwyn once. One of the more terrible restaurant experiences I’ve had.

surprised no one commented about KW's son having a "special assignment" role. There was also another Williams who had a position out in Lisle, but I dont think she's related.

I can second this. I happen to know someone who has had some dealings with one of his ventures, and they were not high on him or his abilities from a professional business level. Frank was a great ball player, but that doesn’t make you good with money or a good business man.
