Many viewers also have questioned whether one day is actually enough for Gordon and his team to renovate a restaurant.
Gordon addressed those concerns from fans and told Touch Bistro: “You’ll be surprised what you can do after three decades in this business in 24 hours. We do our due diligence, we do our homework constantly and then we come up with a plan, a conceptualized plan before we get here.
“So the good news is that we’re sorta rigging these businesses, for two to three weeks, with CCTV cameras. We get all the footage, condensed. I know where all the bodies are buried and then I can get straight to work. So, yeah, it’s twenty-four hours, but it’s almost like a week’s work.”
