"The first two years of being a small business owner was extremely taxing. We didn't have a budget for a prep/line cook. That's how I ended up in the kitchen. I had to wear so many hats that owning a restaurant turned out to be an absolute nightmare for me. We were just starting to do really well as of late 2019 and things were beginning to look up for us, however, like so many others, we've had to pivot." - Rona Davis
