Default Our Restaurant Open Over a Year

I'm happy to say we've made it past the one year mark for our restaurant Poppa's BBQ. Another BBQ joint not far from us just closed their doors, yet we have been going stronger than ever. Just this last week we had a record breaking sales week and the biggest Friday sales ever.
Couldn't have done it without all of the Brethren support and ideas since we started doing competitions a few years back.

From what I hear, they needed a decent dinner crowd to pay for everything and the dinner crowd pretty much disappeared. Also, having bbq as good as us within 100 miles probably doesnt help.
