Fufilling a passion doesn't make the rent..........money does. And try telling the banker that "making money would be nice" and see how far that gets you.
Listen, I'm not saying people aren't in the restaurant business because they love it, but what I am saying is that at the end of the day, if you aren't making money, you won't be in business for long. McDonalds may not be the best food in the world, but they are successful. And back to the original point, if you use a commercial sauce and you like it and your customers like it, use it. Spend your money and time wisely and put yourself in a position to make money.
