Coffee Run: Chicago Forces Out Entrepreneurs

    Money talks so small businesses “walks”.  The city is penny wise and dollar foolish on the matter.  I have seen this my entire  career as a chef spaning 3+ decades and it only gets worse.

    She obviously did not pay off the alderman, inspectors, union organizers, etc, etc, etc.  
    Sad.  It will never, ever change.  Until it all implodes.

    Sorry to see her go, but it is impossible to do a small, street level business in Chicago.  Google “Chicago pedicab ordinance” or “Chicago food truck ordinance”.

    Keep voting for liberal “progressive” democraps and they will continue to ruin everything, tax and regulate you to death and then (after filling their pockets with your money) they will proceed to pull the rip cord as they bail on you leaving their mess behind and you paying, again, for what should have be done in the first place.
