competition.
2. Lack of exposure and experience

I've seen those in some of the restaurants out there that didn't last long, Rivers. I'm a restaurant owner myself. I didn't start this business with those things as the end goal, so I do my best. I'll make sure that the money I spent for my restaurant loans and my merchant loans was for something that's fruitful.
