The Big Leak

Starting a new business is never easy, but I feel like our story is more trying than most. When we first had the idea to open a bake shop we were so excited! We rented out a store front on Main Street, we did a search for available domain names to get our website up and running and we even started interviewing local high school kids to work the registers.

My wife was baking up a storm and we were only three weeks from opening when the first problem struck. There was a leak in the plumbing system of our building and two days of repairs later, our landlord informed us that we had to vacate. They were going to have to re-plumb the whole building! It was too late to find a new store and we were devastated.

The grand opening was already planned and there was nothing we could do but wait. It took three months but finally the store was fixed and we could move back in. What a hassle!
