Restaurant Revisited — Golf: Impossible at Pomona Golf and Country Club

by in Shows, August 13th, 2014

Robert Irvine on Restaurant: ImpossibleAt Pomona Golf and Country Club in Egg Harbor City, N.J., Robert Irvine had to contend not only with a 45-year-old joint golf course and clubhouse but also family friction amongst the owners, sisters Andy Truitt and Pam Grenda, and their cousin, Bruce Ritchie. The trio was facing losses after having failed to attract a fresher audience, and it was up to Robert to reimagine the establishment’s futures. Read on below to hear from Andy and find out how Pomona Golf and Country Club is doing today, a few months after its Restaurant: Impossible transformation.

“Business is slowly picking up,” says Andy. “We’ve had three dinners averaging 25 people.” She adds that they “using the patio” and customers have taken well to the golf carts.

Pam is still cooking at the clubhouse, and she says she’s particularly fond of the “Jumbo Dogs, Black Bean Burger [and] Chicken Salad.”

Pomona Golf and Country Club has begun advertising on Facebook, according to Andy, who says they have instituted “family memberships” and have also “hosted a couple private events.” Andy adds: “Shane does the Facebook advertising. He has filled in for part-timers and is doing odd jobs around the place.”

As far as her relationship with Pam, Andy notes that the two are “talking more, listening more [and] collaborating on some projects.”

Looking ahead to the future, Andy says, “The plan is to continue to grow the business with innovative ideas.” She adds, “We also plan to keep moving forward with improvements.”

    I am a new mobile vendor and I’m learning so much watching Robert. This episode moved me beyond words. I plan to include my family as my business grows and this episode reminded me how important family love is..
    My 14 yr old granddaughter helps me alot during the summer. I hope I am teaching her responsibility and finance with this adventure. She is shy and it’s helping her come out of her shell a little.
    Robert, you ROCK!!!

    The transformation of this restaurant was amazing! So happy to have been a part of it! The cast and crew was great!

    I hope Shane sees this. He is the reason the business will grow. He took an initiative to make a change. Hopefully he can take the proper college courses to make this business thrive. As an avid golfer in the pacific northwest, I would travel to NJ to spend my money at this course, just for pride in what Shane did for his FAMILY. He forced them in to the new age with the help of Robert and his crew. One of my more favorite episodes.

  5. Vickie says:

    This is an amazing inspiration to watch he transformation of a restaurant,food but most important the people that come together as a team to make it work. God bless Robert and its team.

  6. You mean that restaurant in the golf ground?? If it is so it would be very very innovative ideas and golfers will surely like it.
