Here’s my favorite bit on how Momofuku communicates their culture:
“How we communicated our culture in the beginning simply doesn’t work when we bring in a ton of new restaurants,” Mariscal said.

“He gives a history of the company and an overview of our values,” Mariscal said. “It’s less about telling them what to do our how to act and more of giving them enough examples of how we operate.”
