Take­away of­fence

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

I AM writ­ing in re­sponse to last week’s ar­ti­cle in the Town & Coun­try about Hunger Busters go­ing bust. It is sad to see some­one’s busi­ness strug­gling. The restau­rant/cafe busi­ness is a very hard gig and, yes, it is long hours, long days and a lot of time away from fam­ily and friends and some­times very lit­tle re­ward. It is also sad to see Drunk Bean dragged into this sit­u­a­tion, which, re­ally, they have noth­ing to do with. As far as I can tell when Drunk Bean set up their busi­ness all those years ago and spent God knows how much money, they put a clause in their lease say­ing an­other cafe can’t move into that com­plex and sell cof­fee and cakes. It’s a very good busi­ness de­ci­sion, thus se­cur­ing their own busi­ness fu­ture. At the end of the day a con­tract is a con­tract and to Maria, who ap­proached the Town & Coun­try (if it is your real name), to say that Childers “has long been with­out a de­cent ham­burger/fish and chip shop” is an in­sult. Take some time and check out Childers restau­rant re­views about the fish and chips and ham­burg­ers in my restau­rant or go to lot­burger.com and check out my ham­burger with the lot. We were the only shop to make it in this na­tional com­pe­ti­tion within a 300km ra­dius. This was our for­mer busi­ness Hun­gry Hippo and we still sell that burger to­day. Take a walk down Churchill St and sam­ple some of the restau­rants and other cafes’ burg­ers and fish and chips, which I have and think they are a very good prod­uct. So Maria, just be­cause a busi­ness in town is strug­gling and you like them doesn’t mean you have to drag down ev­ery other food busi­ness in town. If you do, please have the de­cency to put your full name so peo­ple may have the chance to chal­lenge your state­ments in­stead of hid­ing be­hind some fic­ti­tious name. Jef­frey Be­han Childers
