Hello & Welcome

Posted: May 21, 2014 in Uncategorized

An empty business is a lonely business, but this is never more true than in the service industry. An empty restaurant or bar pretty much just sits and waits for customers. The usual cleaning can be done, but consider the bar, a place where people socialize or lose inhibitions, where loud music or comedy or big sports events are witnessed and responded to in the typical performer-audience fashion, and without an audience, there is just emptiness. No need to take the stage, no need to do a sound check, no need to turn up the TV volume save to stave off the boredom of the employees. If a bar opened and closed without taking in any clientele, the end result is that absolutely nothing was done, and what was done today probably will have no need to be done the next day. Picture yourself as a bartender with no customers for two days. The overwhelming sadness and loneliness of it all might make you want to simply quit despite the ease of work. It could even drive a man to drink.
