Do you think copy-cat competitors can help your businses or not?
I was just reading an article about how they think it can help.
This got me to thinking about my parents and their business. Over 30 years ago they started an Asian/International grocery with a dining restaurant next door. There was no other businesses like this (Grocery/Restaurant). Over the past several years I see MANY Grocery/Restaurant among ethnic stores. If you see a Mexican, African, or Asian grocery store you’ll bet there will be a restaurant next to it now.
My parents claim that they were the ones that started that “trend”. My mom says with a little negativity “Now there’s so many other places to go and we don’t have as much customers as we used to”
I mean, we still do good but in the past it was REALLY good.
