    Hi, I'm new here, and happy to find a forum where I can learn from other people. I live in S.E. Minnesota in a town along the Mississippi river. I have worked in the food industry for more years than I care to admit to. I'm currently looking for work as I have just come away from a horrible experience as (supposed) part owner of a new restaurant. I did all the work of getting it ready, created the menu, got it up and running then had the majority partner force me out. Now I'm watching him destroy what I worked so hard for. Has anyone else been this stupid? You know misery loves company. I'd love to hear anyone else's hard-luck story. May we all win the lottery!

    Nice to meet you, greyeaglem. You might want to read the thread about the closing of a restaurant, "The Final Chapter of the Fourth Story Restaurant". I'll bet you'll find it interesting. I've not been in the professional side of the business, but friends of mine had an experience similar to yours. They now have a place of their own and are doing very well after being open 10 months.

    There's so much here to enjoy! I hope you take full advantage of this site and this community.

    Regards,
    Mezzaluna
