I have to admit I was concerned going into this winter without some of my fellow restaurateurs in Naramata.
Running a small business in this town is no easy feat especially with ammeneties only 20 min away in Penticton.
Most people assume that the closing of two of our local restaurants would make those of us left here very busy. What they don't understand is how good it is to have healthy competition to keep people eating in Naramata. Choice is a good thing.
I expected and began to prepare myself for a decline in sales because people would get tired of what I have to offer. I am thankful to announce that business has been on par but what I am surprised and bewilldered by, is the appreciation customers have been expressing. I honestly didn't see that coming.
Isn't is funny how we take for granted things we have and it takes loosing them for us to be jolted out of our self centered disposition.
I'm writing this blog just simply to convey that my heart is warmed by the benevolence that you locals have shown towards me in the last few months.
I would like to say a HUGE thank you!
Your words of encouragement and your continued support in choosing my pizza has bewildered me.
I try to notice and appreciate you all.
Here's to a happy holiday season.
