Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels

A conversation with Chief Executive Officer, Dennis Quaintance

After nearly 30 years of operating one of the top-rated hotel and restaurant companies in the South, the founders of Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels (QW) announced in November 2016 that it became 100% owned by its 600+ staff members. This makes QW one of only a few employee-owned restaurant and hotel companies in the entire country.

We sat down with Dennis Quaintance, CEO to get his outlook on employee ownership and why more business owners should consider ESOPs as a viable exit strategy.
