Back from the Brink

2008_03_colors.jpgThe AP reports that Colors, the restaurant cooperative launched by 9/11 survivors, was recently on the brink of closing with over $1 million in debt, a disorganized staff, and little incoming business, but is finally making a comeback. "The previous chef had left months earlier along with almost half the original staff of 58. The remaining employees hadn't been paid in weeks...there wasn't enough money to order food supplies.....it took the whole winter for the turnaround to show results. Now bills are paid on schedule and there's a tighter chain of command...with Mr. Faulkner at the stoves, there's a growing stream of customers." [AP via Gothamist]
