The Summer So Far
August 4th, 2021 - The Summer So Far by Colin
Busy, busy, busy!
Wow! We never expected the restaurant to be so busy, certainly not so quickly. So thank-you to everyone who has been supporting us, especially those who can't stop coming back!
We've been getting a lot of positive and constructive feedback, and have made many changes based on that. We're always happy to hear what our customers think, good or bad; we can't fix a problem if don't know about it. So if you are unhappy with something here please tell us about it; even if it's not something that can be easily changed, we can at least add it to the plan.
We still haven't been able to open more hours, we just cannot get our staff numbers up enough. The staff we have are fantastic and are putting in a lot of hard work, but we cannot find more of them. It seems to be a general issue; a lot of business owners we talk to are also struggling to find people to work.
In a way Mandi and I are kind of glad about not being able to open more than we currently are. Sure, we could make more revenue, and could have made happy all the people who've complained about us not being open when they came here to eat on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but we're already so busy keeping everything together that the idea of opening more hours doesn't sound appealling right now. We're trying to figure out ways to make the restaurant and RV park run more smoothly and, if we can achieve that, more hours will hopefully be easy.
The Lake House got painted, it looks much better now. The shower block and sheds also got painted, the grounds look a lot better for it.
We're currently looking at ideas to improve the front lawn area. The far side is largely weeds, rather than grass, and the whole area would benefit from the addition of some shrubs and flowers. Fingers crossed we can get something worked out for next summer.
