Jim Crane: Fortune Favors the Brave!
The Houston Astros won the 2017 World Series, making their owner, Jim Crane, a very proud man.
Jim Crane is busy with real estate and restaurant ventures, in addition to running the main companies that made him one of the richest men in America. The future looks very bright for this daring entrepreneur from Houston, Texas.
Crane’s Restaurant Businesses
In 2011, he purchased the Houston Astros for a reported $680.0 million. This paid off big-time when the team won the 2017 World Series by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7.
In January 2017, Jim Crane’s restaurants, Osso & Kristalla, opened in downtown Houston. Along with Potente, they are the Italian translation of his children’s names. Osso & Kristalla is a soft, rustic space. The restaurant has neutral aesthetics with a casual outdoor patio.
Meanwhile, Potente brings back memories of a luxurious Italian villa. It features a roomy bar, elegant main dining space, and a special chef’s table in the wine room.
Crane plans to keep a sharp eye on the two restaurants and said, “Hey, I’m right here and I’ll walk over there for lunch. If something’s not right, I’ll see it.”
