Welcome to “All is fair in business and breakfast”

Hello! My name is Jacob and I decided to start a blog!


I’m 24 years old and own a restaurant with my beautiful fiancée, Olivia.


I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship from the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business. We’ve owned Old Town Café in the sleepy mountain town of Joseph, Oregon for a year now and I thought I’d share a little bit about some lessons learned and what it’s like to be a young business owner.

My ultimate hope is to encourage other young individuals to become entrepreneurial by providing links to resources, suggesting books to read, and present ideas in the world of business. New ideas and ways to make the world a better place fascinate me and I hope to inspire some of you to put your passions to good use!

This blog will primarily focus on anecdotes and lessons learned from my adventure in the restaurant industry. Olivia has a great blog coming soon called Pursuit of Tastiness where you can see stories, recipes, and photos of everything going on at Old Town Café. I strongly encourage you to check it out if you like fun!

There will be new posts every Friday and possibly bonus posts if I’m feeling especially inspired, so keep an eye out!
