A perspective of a former restaurant owner

Recently I have been seeing posts come across social media both positive and negative about local businesses. I think these posts hit me especially hard because my wife and I owned a restaurant in Kansas and experienced personal struggles in, and throughout the time we owned it. I thought maybe I could give a fresh perspective from a former restaurant owner to those who have never owned a restaurant.

There are times when we just need to be quiet! I’ve recently discovered YouTube and ear plugs. I will admit that I’m not always “tuned into” what I’m working on. You know we women like to multi-task, but is efficiency what it’s cranked up to be? Let’s forget being the SUPER woman! Recently my friends and I had a FUN morning picking up trash. And I was quiet so I could hear cars approaching, as is recommended. Let me tell you that despite the warning signs of “work ahead” some of those vehicles are really speeding by! But I digress… The trash that accumulate in front of Atlanta High is amazing. Doesn’t anyone know to bag it and take it home? There are often deer feed bags that were “carefully” put in the back of the truck that just happened to blow out on the merry way down the road.
