  • After his wife passed 8 years ago, this restaurant and the staff are all he has left. He spends all of his time in the restaurant, as owner, manager and food runner. This is all he knows. If he loses the restaurant it will be like losing the rest of his family.
  • John has poured hundreds of thousands into the restaurant over the years and is still more than $200,000 in debt. He needs to bring the restaurant back to success or he will lose everything.
