Hey Dusten, thanks for the feedback. And yes, restaurants are certainly challenging enough, as-is. But, in Los Angeles, we’re also fighting the rising minimum wage. How can we continue to drive value without increasing our prices (which would subsequently increase tip averages)? Seems like a lose-lose for the consumer.
