Family Dinner Speaker: David Morton, DMK Restaurants

David Morton, co-owner of DMK Restaurants, started his first business venture at the age of 19 as a student at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He now owns multiple businesses and has started businesses in a variety of industries, including hospitality, real estate, music and finance. His DMK restaurants have been widely successful, perhaps the most popular being DMK Burger Bar. He and his wife also own a residential and commercial design company, which stemmed from a personal interest in flipping houses. He spoke to residents of The Garage at Family Dinner on October 5th about his various businesses and how he came to be an entrepreneur. He also offered some advice for our aspiring entrepreneurs: “If you’re not super open to mistakes, accidents, failure, then you’re missing all of the potential you have to offer.”
