After 13 years, the owners of Tai Show Japanese Hibachi have closed their restaurant. A new tenant will be moving in, opening a Mexican restaurant called Cancun.

The owners of Tai Show are taking a well-deserved break after working 6 days/week for 13 years without a vacation.

Did they ever do any business? Never saw too many cars there.

Like we don't have enough Mexican restaurants already.

For someone who doesn't work that must be hard to fathom! Only 6 days a week?

Sad! Used to go there. Due to economy I haven't been there. They were awesome & customer focused. Are they hoping to open another location?

Does this mean that since so many mexicans work at the pizza places now Italians will work at the Mexican place?

Are you implying that the Mexican restaurant is being owned/operated/financed by an illegal?

As far as who puts up cash for restaurants, in the case of some that I know, it took years of savings and their own sweat equity to open them. Look at the stereotypical Korean grocers or Indian owned 7-11's, and other steretypical minority-owned businesses. Most of these are financed through family savings and hard work.

While of course there are the celebrity chefs who get financial backers or folks like Stephen Starr in Philadelphia or Cameron Mitchell in Columbus, most of the small eateries aren't in that position.

Not hard, just trying to keep your multiple personalities organized.

With all of your personas, you would think at least one would be employed.

Well Tim, Ya don't have to try so hard. You don't try much at anything else. Just relax little buddy. As for work? We didn't all have the Baptist Rite working for us. Maybe it is all about who you BloW :0)

Hah,You don't know how to send a letter. Don't you A$$holes have anything better to do? I don't even understand your purpose. What are you accomplishing other than proving to everyone what strokes you are. TOPIX, home of the braindead. I don't have time for you. Folks, this is what is running Richland Twp. Why don't you re-elect them.

I am not implying a thing.

However, I do know that regardless of how thrifty one is money only goes so far. It takes more than a few thous. to open even the smallest rest.

I also read somewhere that if they invest over 1 million theres hefty tax breaks for them.

it can take tens if not hundreds of thousands to open.

I'm familiar with Tai Show and the layout. The new tenant will need to install a new kitchen, dining room, dining room furniture, and cosmetically turn it into a Mexican theme. There will also need to be repairs to the building itself which I will not go into here.

I don't know the new tenant. I do know they are Mexican. I'm sure they are hardworking people who are risking resources to open up a restaurant. If they are lazy people expecting a hand out, the will not survive long. I don't really know too many lazy people who are willing to invest hundreds of thousands into a business just to be lazy.

Again, without knowing who the new tenant is, it's a bit premature to be pre-judging them. Maybe they are the owners of the Mexican restaurants in the area? Maybe they are first-timers. Who knows?

I will say that opening a new restaurant in the late Spring/early Summer season is a bit awkward as they are historically the slowest time (except for tourist destinations).

There's also a new Asian buffet opening up next to the Wine and Spirits Store. They will also need to install a new kitchen, dining room etc. That space is gutted, it was the old Wine and Spirits store that's next door.

I've been told that Michael"Vain HK-Self Appointed Township Spokesman"Hsu has an incredibly nastly gastrointestinal condition which prohibits him from actually going out in public. That would then mean that everything he says is based on fantasy or what he's seen on the internet or television. Now that's funny. OOps, I think I heard someone step on a Frog. Or maybe that was a Toad. Hah!
