Open exactly one month, Skew skids to a close after employees allegedly steal from owner

Lori Midson
Skew, according to owner Ton Phairatphibon, was skewered -- by its own employees

Weird. Just weird. That was the overriding observation last night at Skew, the globalized food-on-a-stick restaurant that Ton Phairatphibon opened at 2070 South University Boulevard exactly one month ago.

A small crowd, assembled on the patio, puffed on smokes, shook their heads in unison and talked quietly among themselves, looking for answers. "It's just incredibly weird," mused one man. "Really weird," echoed another.

They were there for a "shut down" party; Phairatphibon closed Skew last night, and, in celebratory commiseration, was offering free food and alcohol to anyone and everyone hankering for one last skewer, one last drop of booze.

Restaurants come and go for a myriad of different reasons, but Skew's closure was not only one of the quickest shutterings in the history of Denver restaurantdom, but also one of the most bizarre.

To hear Phairatphibon, a self-described monk who's "a great admirer of Jesus Christ," tell his story is sad and bewildering. It's a made-for-movie script that President Obama and Oprah Winfrey have been privy to, in the form of a letter that Phairatphibon has sent to both, outlining, what, he says, is "a lack of moral accountability in this country."

For reasons that may or may not make sense, Phairatphibon hires staff that many of us would think twice about bringing into our workplace: alcoholics, drug addicts, parolees. But that's exactly what he did when he assembled the staff at Skew -- and then, according to him, he got skewered. So skewered, in fact, that within thirty days of opening his doors, he was forced to shut them. "It's organized crime," he insists. "I hired these people, gave them management positions, and then they worked in teams to steal from me."

His office, he claims, was broken into on a daily basis; money was stolen from the cash register; other employees were also targets of theft; and even customers, maintains, Phairatphibon, were the victims of robbery. In addition, he says, he's a victim of identify theft. "The people responsible for this stole my checking account and routing numbers to get their own checks made," he tells me. And, yet, some of the very same staff members, who Phairatphibon accuses of thievery, are still on the payroll. "If I fire them," he reasons, "they're just going to shift their tactics to another restaurant." But that begs the question: If your employees are stealing from you -- and you're holding them responsible for wiping out your restaurant -- why on earth would you continue to employ them?

This is AMAZING. I have never been more entertained by a Westword article. It wasn't the article really it was the string of comments, primarily the responses by the owner Watcharat and his INSANE responses. How any business owner can think it is a good idea to publicly insult employees in an effort to defend his name is what is so AMAZING! I own several businesses and saying anything negative about someone's performance or conduct to anyone other than directly to the person is a huge no no.

We need more on this Westword, lets get a follow up article. Let's get more Ton. This guy actually thinks he knows what he is doing here. He may or may not be a good business man but he is terrible at PR to the point where I am suspicious if this is actually him or someone trying to sabotage his image. If it truly is him, he truly is nuts and  it would be fascinating to get more random gems from him like: "I want to commend Professor Joan Wynn from the University of Denver in the Management department for equipping me with the knowledge on how to stop organized crime in the restaurant.She is the professor at DU that inspired me the most at the University of Denver and I'm not easily inspired." or "Guess who is the new appointed CEO of SKEW. They are twins and both of them are women. Hahahahhahahah. Teesa is one of the first employees to be fired at SKEW." Tessa is a 20 year old girl most 20 year old girls near DU these days don't even have jobs and have their parents paying for a nice apartment and fancy car.  Now a grown man is getting into a comment spat with her in a very public forum.

Classic, I want more Ton, let's get a reality show on this guy before he overdoses or kills himself.

It seems to me that most of you know what the problem is (that he is not totally there) but each of you are still pointing your fingers and criticizing him. Wouldn't it be better to offer some understanding or compassion for the guy? It is so easy to throw stones at others. I do feel for all the former employees and would not wish their experience upon anyone. Let's be constructive. Don't just enjoy the free food and drinks and then turn around and say hurtful things.

For those of you wondering: I received a letter from a Skew employee yesterday (the only one, I might add, who actually listed a name), with whom I later spoke. She told me that she and some other employees were having a meeting last night to discuss the situation. She has my number; I haven't heard back from her. My interview with Ton took place by phone, the morning after Skew had closed. By then, of course, it was an empty restaurant bereft of employees to interview.

To Lori, the author:It seems from your blog that you understand Phairatphibon is completely out of his mind but you neglected to get anyone else's point of view. I had one occassion to eat at Skew which was quite nice until Phairatphibon came up and introduced himself. He was cordial at first but then would not go away. His arrogance has no bounds. He said a lot of what you had in the article but, he also asked me if I knew who Carlos Mencia was, then he said he had a 2 hour free flow show on stage that was just like Carlos. Evidently he thought of himself as a comedian. Nothing he said was funny except that he was suing McDonalds and other fast food companies. He also said he was working on legistlation to lower the drinking age to 15. Both of which were really gaining momentum. He shared how smart he was. I have never encountered someone so full of himself and lies.I don't know about the individuals he had working at his establishment but they seemed quite nice. Your article and his words seem slanderous. It is amazing the board brush he uses to depict his employees. They are the ones who really loose out from this madman. You really should have interviewed at least one of them. Or some of the many that have encountered his absolute nonsense.

Hey all you former employees of Skew. This is Kendra. I'm so sorry all of this had to happen to all of you. I should have said something to everyone sooner. Well as much as I knew before Ton fired me. Ton is an alcoholic. And even worse he can't admit it to himself. I myself am a recovering alcoholic. I have been sober over one year. I know first hand what alcohol can do to lives. I never tried to run a restaurant while actively drinking but I guess Ton demonstrated what would happen. I love all you ladies. Whatever he has said to all of you just let it slide off your back. You are beautiful, powerful women. Don't listen to what that sexist, crazy has to say. By the way I got a new job at Japoix. I am the sushi chef there. I cant hire you all. But I know we might need a few servers and a bar tender as well as some kitchen staff. Come in and drop of your resume. The manegment is great and the food is upscale. We're getting busier by the day. Love you all so much

TON. GET HELP. GO TO ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS. ADMIT YOU HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM. PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH. THEY WILL HELP YOU THERE. JUST STOP DRINKING. IT ALL STARTS THERE. THINGS WILL ONLY GET WORSE IF YOU KEEP DRINKING, I PROMISE. YOU HAVE TO GET HELP. GOOD LUCK. GET YOURSELF A BIG BOOK

I was one of Watcharat former employees. This article is a bunch of BS. We were not convicted felons or addicts. The entire staff was incredibly educated and wonderful people. Ton is an actively drinking alcoholic and is crazy and deranged. Nobody was stealing from his restaurant or his bank account. He makes up lies because that's what alcoholics do. That restaurant wasn't even his to begin with. His father was funding the project. He was the one throwing his fathers money down the toilet and that is why it got shut down.

I have been to Skew a number of times, have met the owners/managers and many employees, and spent time with employees outside of Skew. I can personally attest to Ton's completely warped view of Skew, Skew employees, managerial practices, and obscure self-righteous view on life.

First of all, this restaurant was doomed from the start and this would be obvious within a few minutes of entering the restaurant to anybody with a business sense. Unfortunately for Marcus, who actually put in lots of time and effort, Ton's actions were extremely crippling to the restaurant. Ton would drink hundreds of dollars worth of red wine while inviting all of his frat brothers in to enjoy free drinks. He would annoy customers about his "vision" and bother them while they were trying to enjoy their lunch. In the strict context of restaurant management, everything Ton did was crippling to the long term success of the restaurant.

Aside from business, Ton is a delusional and inappropriate sexist that should not even be allowed to speak to any female. Ton awkwardly follows his female employees around the restaurant smelling strongly of marijuana with his red wine in hand asking them if they have ever used certain adult sex toys and talking of his sexual escapades. Basically, if he weren't the manager of the restaurant someone would quickly call the police on him and he would be escorted out and likely arrested for drug use, sexual harassment, etc.

Also, his portrayal of Skew employees as ex-cons, alcoholics, and drug addicts is completely false. Every Skew employee I have spoken to is personable, kind, and pleasant. Many of them hold college degrees and none that I have met are alcoholics, drug abusers, or ex-convicts. In fact, Ton himself is more of drug abuser and alcoholic than all of his employees. In short, the Skew employees are simply a great group of people.

In summary, Ton is not a moral individual. Not only are his restaurant management skills completely inadequate, but also he is a social disgrace. His 16 hour work day consists of nothing more than smoking marijuana, drinking red wine with his frat brothers, and following his female employees around the restaurant while making sexually inappropriate comments.

Mantonat, if you truly believe that this man is remotely close to being normal then you're just as crazy as him!!! Yes, I believe in equal opportunity and giving people a chance when no one else will but this is crossing a completely different line. Not everyone in that company is a fuck up and I'm sure they don't appreciate being portrayed as one. You should really do your research before you side with the devil.

I was also at the 'shutdown" party for Skew. My wife and I live close by and recieved an invitation via Facebook so we decided to check it out. I have never been so offended in my entire life; I can't imagine how anyone could tolerate working with or for him. This guy is incredibly disrespectful and sexist to say the least and unless you were there, you cannot possibly grasp his level of insanity. My friends and I have been to Skew several times and the food was always good and the employees were fun to be around. My wife and I had the opportunity to visit with several employees after the "meeting" and it was very bittersweet. These guys seem to be somewhat of a family, one employee was "kicked out" for defending herself and 3 others got up without hesitating and followed her. Doesn't that say something? We felt horrible that these guys walked into what they thought was their usual Sunday night meeting, only to be treated like shit and find out that they were all unemployed... But hey, Mr. Crazy offered free food and alochol so that makes it all better. I like having a cool place to hang out close by with good food and drinks and I think others would agree with me, but how can a business be successful with someone like that running it? I saw him walking around drinking wine out of the bottle and he smelled like marijuana so my guess is that his business failed simply because of his own habits. I never realized the Westword was there but in my opinion, if you really wanted to know what's going on in this company you would've spoken with customers and employees! I highly doubt anything this man said was true. Do you really believe everyone is a criminal of some sort? And I agree with whoever said that the video should be released, I'd pay out of my own pocket just so other people could see this guy in action. What a joke.

i was there that night for the closing down party. This guy is a victim of nothing except insanity. He was calling all of us(yes, even us customers) "motherfuckers." He threatened to have any "motherfucker" that interrupts his speech forcibly removed. Then he got up in front of all the staff and customers and blamed the failure of the company on the "female" employees, saying that in thailand females are considered inferior to men, and the females that work here "are not ready to be employed by the company." He mentioned nothing about theft, or any missing money. He was carrying around a full gallon of milk with him the whole time. He got into it with his brother and the cops were called. I am not making this up. He hired a film crew who got the whole thing on tape. PLEASE someone release this video, because watching someone go nuts in a public forum is pretty amazing. He kept saying he was going to check himself into the hospital the next morning, which apparently did not happen. After the cops came, it all settled down and we all ate and drank for free, making sure to stay out of crazy's way. This guy has COMPLETELY lost his shit and needs mental health help as soon as possible. I brought a group of 5 people to this event and we are still talking about it. Our minds were pretty well blown.

Funny, but I was really expecting the readership of Westword to be behind this guy 100%. Just because someone doesn't conform to your midwest, conservative, suburban ideal of a businessman doesn't mean he's crazy or wrong. There are very few people in the world with the courage to back their beliefs with their own money and actions. There are very few people with faith that their fellow humans will actually do what is right and good. It's easy to mock someone when their plan backfires, but I'm pretty sure this guy leads a life that is more fulfilling to him than yours is to you, despite a temporary setback. I think I'm with him on this one: I'd rather give an opportunity to someone the rest of society has its their back on than to hire a bunch of witless slackers with no work ethic, no appreciation for passion, and no clue what it means to succeed or fail by putting everything on the line. I hope we read about your future successes before too long, Watcharat Phairatphiboon.

OK, am I really the only one here that thinks this guy is a total and complete loon? I mean really, you hire convicts and addicts and are surprised when they steal from you (if in fact they really did) and then the surefire way you come up with to deal with the problem is keep paying them????? Great concept with a mad scientist at the helm. Well at least he set records in Denver for the fastest closure.....congrats for that.

Did you even read all of my posts? I suggested that if what he is saying is true(the weight loss, the anxiety, the 16 hour work days) then he should get some help. Also, I should point out that many of the customers(myself included) had no idea there was a mental health issue. We were berated with insults, and only realized after it went on some time that this dude is nuts. We thought we were coming to a party, as was posted on the facebook page, not coming to witness a melt down.

Hey Teesa. Men and Women are equal in this country. Grow a brain already. If you think you are so right, why don't you bring a class lawsuit on me with the rest of the females that are no longer working there. Guess who is the new appointed CEO of SKEW. They are twins and both of them are women. Hahahahhahahah. Teesa is one of the first employees to be fired at SKEW. I think she is the worse out of everyone who was hired. She spends more money that she has, spends all of her money on a car and clothes she cannot afford, and lives with her parents and grandmother. Even when she was fired, she continues to come to SKEW and I allow it because I am mature enough. I know it is her because I told her she is no longer allowed in the restaurant when she said I had the mentality of a 12 year old. Well if I have a mentality of a 12 year old and I am successful, what does that make you?

I help people who others won't give chances to. If you would like a 2nd chance in life yourself, you got to give it to other first. Give before you ask. That is the serious problem in this country. People like to ask, not earn. I don't care your past as long as you have the right intentions and determination. That is called character. I will train them as long as it takes. The ones without character are the ones fired from SKEW. Yes, Melina & Teesa. Get a life. You want to know about Melina. I told all of my employees that I was fired from CEO. The truth is I wasn't. I wanted to know who the backstabbers were. That person was Melina. I have customers who are spies for me. Brandon Gumbiner a student from DU will verify this story. That is why Melina is fired. Melina has 0 character and the only thing she wants is money. She always asks why I don't spend money at my own bar and I tip so much at neighboring businesses. You are asking the wrong question. Why don't you ask yourself why? You just answered your own question. Use your brain. Not your skimpy outfits. Our General Manager, Marcus will verify how slutty Melina is. She likes to get drunk and rub her ass on people. Sorry, it is digusting to me because I encourage my girls to show intelligence. The person Melina rubbed on was a General Manager. Why would a person who is a bartender rub off on a general manager? You all know the answer.

I like to test my employees and I am starting to realize that the more nice you are to someone, they will simply just take advantage of you. I have been working at least 16 hours a day and I have lost 19 lbs since I opened the restaurant. My insanity is the passion I have for my business. The cops that were at the restaurant were there to shake my hand and was called to come down by Lori Midson. Lori Midson was so touched by my story that is why she called the cops. Why don't you ask her. This is the last post I am going to post here. Too many ignorant people with ego and confidence that is just dumbfounded to place judgement on a person they don't even know. You guys should all hang out with the people who were fired from SKEW. You guys will all get along.

Hi my name is Watcharat Phairatphiboon. I am the Founder & Director of Skew. If you read the article closely, I don't just hire any people from AA, NA, or parolees. I look at special situations. Actually, Kim Neidig is a perfect example on how my philosophy in life works. She is one of the few that I actually helped. Kim Neidig was involved in a car accident where everyone that was riding with her passed away except her. She lost her two parents and two of her friends. She is a parolee. And I don't care how long it takes to make her kitchen manager. I will make her into one. Here at Skew people are hired based on character. Before you judge me I would find out more about what Skew is about. The people who nobody pays attention to, I pay attention to. These are my target customers starting with priority. 1. Children 2. Celiacs 3. Women 4. The middle class. Our philosophy of our company is intelligent and efficient eating. Minimal intake and maximum nutrients. We are the opposite of McDonald's and Taco Bell. Eventually I will restructure SKEW to be a non profit restaurant. I will be able to do that when I can buy my investors out when the economy recovers. Please find out more about me before you call me a loon. I took an oath of self-sacrifice and wanted to give back to the community that has shaped my life and who I am, which is the DU community. I will blog on our website what has been going on. You can find out more about us at www.skewrestaurant.com. Tripioneers means 3 pioneers. I started that company with 3 DU students. Pioneers represent DU. If you want to own something and hide it from the government, you just replace your ownership with a holding company. There are ways to manage the information the government has on you. You are right I am a loon. I am a loon on a mission to give hope to businesses that are moral. It is expensive in this country to be moral. Jesus Christ makes it simple for us. Anything that is difficult in life is rewarding. Apply that with everything. If my businesses run smoothly, I will create problems in the company to teach my employees how to deal with them. I welcome problems. That is how I continuously develop myself on a daily basis.

I also believe in helping others and not throwing stones, especially when you don't know what a person is truly dealing with. I'm a very compassionate person and I take a lot of pride in that but you can only put up with so much. If Ton's family knew he was mentally unstable then they should not have allowed him to be in such a powerful position. I truly hope he gets the help he needs but all of this shouldn't have come about at our expense. If you'd had just ONE conversation with him, you'd realize there's no such thing as getting a word in, having a different opinion, or even him taking the time to listen to what you have to say, much less trying to understand it. It was always his way or no way, he was NEVER wrong, and he was the BEST at everything... that's no exaggeration. We were verbally abused and harassed, sometimes sexually, and he even tried to physically fight a couple of people. We all chose to turn the other cheek, for almost two months, simply because we loved each other and his brother Marcus. Marcus was the glue that held everything together and we all have a lot of respect for him, he's a good friend and an even better boss. My point is, I think we are all allowed some time to be hurt and feel a little bitter, afterall, you cannot possibly know the extent of what WE went through just to be a part of something that was stripped away from us without warning.

Dude, I work in law enforcement. Denver cops don't have time to come out and shake hands late at night. There is big city crime in Denver. If your story were true they would send 1 cop, not waste 2 on a PR handshake. The fact is, 2 cops took you to the back of the place to a private room where the rest of us couldn't see. You guys were back there a good 30 minutes. I find it hard to believe they would do that if they were there to shake your hand. Get real with yourself, bro. If what you say is true about losing weight and being so stressed out from work, you need to get some help. You are breaking down, and some good people are suffering for it.

Junior. I challenge you to a debate of any topic both of us don't specialize in. I will show you if I am delusional or not. I have only a highschool degree so feel free to email me personally with anything. You write before you think. Do you even know me and what I am about? Seems like you are very passionate about SKEW. I fired a lot of people because I told my employees from the beginning that if you are working here only for money, might as well quit now. I expect much more from my employees at SKEW. People in the restaurant business like to complain why they get paid $8/hour. I will tell you why. Because you are worth $8/hour. Show me you can multi task and think for yourself rather work off a piece of paper, then I will pay you more. If you can lower the company's number of employees and do the job of 2 people, than I will pay you $2 an hour. Chefs in Japan make up to $100,000 a year. But again, they can multitask and are much more intelligent. I am trying to teach my employees that. It is the GE (General Electric Six Sigma) way combined with my Buddhist principles. I'm trying to teach my employees how to think. But of course not all of us want to be develop ourselves and be smarter. For those people, they are not a fit to work at SKEW. To show how nice I am, I actually offerred to keep paying for their wages until I could find a place for them to work at one of my friend's restaurant. That offer is, however, off the table now for the disrespectful people who are not up to our standards. We are a new concept so the roots of the company is very important. We don't need weeds right now, just roots. Weeds slow everybody else down and is not fair to my other employees who are working at the level that allows them to stay at SKEW.

We will be back 5 times stronger. The permanent solution is to switch to electronic payments. Banks need to market electronic payments as a security benefit also. Anyone can steal your money with just your account number, routing number, personal information, and billing address. It is sick how easy it is. I'm switching to electronic payments from now on. It is the best solution.
