I'm not throwing in the towel. I believe I can be more effective by working a 50 hour week instead of a 70 hour one. For the last six weeks I have left my house at 4 AM (it takes me an hour to get there) and usually arrive home some time around 5 PM... every...single...day.
Business is improving but we have a long way to go. Yesterday was crazy busy - in a two hour period we did nearly $800 in sales. The local newspaper featured a story about us on the front page of it's Saturday edition. Hopefully those new customers who read about us and tried us for the first time will start making our restaurant a regular eating choice.
