    Time to get out of the restaurant business, Mary Lou. It can sink you. Learn to do something else.

    Interesting how this is going. A friend of mine’s parents own a decent sized “rustic” marina on a river. It’s got docks, fuel, houseboat rentals, and a convenience store. I THINK it’s on the 3rd generation now. My friend’s Dad won’t let either him or his brother have anything to do with the business. He says that three generations of being “trapped” there fighting to make a go of it is enough. This sentiment seems pretty common in the service industry after a while.

    Selling prepared food is harder than selling hardware….

    Will the kids take another run at organic farming?

    Its ocean front real estate, its worth a couple million at least. Sell to a fat cat who will replace the restaurant with a fancy private mansion.

    Truly. The restaurant business is the most difficult business, as anyone who has been on the inside of a variety of business knows. To biglar155’s comment, that sentiment is not confined to service industries.

    Listen to your father, see what he is planning. He’s been around the block…….

    Good luck with the organic farming alternative. I tried that for 10 years. Not much to be made there either, and the hours are interminable during the spring, summer, and fall. And there is no income during the winter.

    Sounds like teaching – in reverse.

    The way to make a small fortune in the restaurant business is to start with a large fortune.

    Spoken like one who has never ever been on a farm or had friends who were farmers and never seen how a farm really works.

    Oh boy. You make one little mistake with the high end crowd, if things aren’t perfect… it’s a bad market to compete in.

    Yeah, but she made a textbook mistake. You can see it a mile away. And a lot of younger people taking over a family business do this. They don’t really understand the tastes of the high-end crowd but to cover their insecurities about their perceived social class they’ll make this blunder. She’s got a lot of problems in this regard. The father of her kid is a Harvard law grad.
