Kornfeld interview

I don’t know how many people saw the Kornfeld interview last night on WVIA, if you didn’t  you missed quite a show. Very funny, insightful, looked back 50 + years in the hospitality business. I’m sure it will be re-broadcast again, you don’t want to miss it.

Original Broadcast Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Rick, Ross, and Mitch Kornfeld are second-generation owners of the Woodlands Inn and Resort in Wilkes Barre. In an industry where the days are long and the work is hard, hear how the Kornfelds have melded three very different personalities with a great sense of humor to grow a very competitive business.
