Spin-A-Yarn

Spin-A-Yarn Steakhouse is a restaurant that has been in business for over 60 years in Northern California.  Saki took it over from the original owners fulfilling his dreams of owning a restaurant even though his only experience had been as a server.  Jennifer, who works as a bartender in the restaurant, is Saki’s so-called ‘Trophy Wife’ and has a 14-year-old daughter named Mikayla.

The restaurant has always been a popular place, but has experienced a decline in the last few years. They spent close to $900,000 on a reinvention that did not do the restaurant justice, spending $80,000 on the bathrooms along and not a penny on the kitchen.  Saki has lost his passion in running the restaurant and often has his friends over to eat for free and play poker.  Jennifer, on the other hand, has no restaurant management experience and is at a loss on how to cope which has put their relationship into its own decline over the last few months.

With the two of them always fighting at work and never being on the same page, it’s obvious that this restaurant needs its passion and leadership back. Is this landmark restaurant on its way out?
