Just when you think you know your business, something like this happens. I thought February and March were really busy months where we did a ton of business. April had a really slow week in the middle with Passover and tax time and while it picked up again, May felt like the slowest month ever. Just pure torture with some really dead nights. This is the reason you keep records, so someone who’s not in the kitchen and dining room keeps accurate score, because I just put my sales taxes together to pay the bill for April and May and it’s $2,000 higher than February or March, so I guess I was wrong and April/May were great for Dirt Candy.
