Watch: Celebrity chef goes into explicit detail why he'll NEVER open another business in crime-ridden California
Yes, Die Hard is a Christmas Movie! Dare your friends to change your mind with our new Christmas long sleeve!
Chef Andrew Gruel, CEO and founder of American Gravy Restaurant Group, owns a number of restaurants in California. Don't expect any more, though. The state's pro-crime, anti-business policies have made the state impossible to operate in. Chef Gruel pledges never to open another business in the state again.
You know the stories. Family-owned businesses have seen their livelihood destroyed. Ice cream needs to be protected under lock and chain. Business owners get assaulted for asking homeless people to please stop peeing on their storefronts. This September in San Francisco, only 3% of small businesses WEREN'T vandalized.
California's answer? Laws that make it illegal for owners and employees to do anything. These stories are from 2023. As FOX News reports, the state has been circling down the sh*tter ever since a proposition passed in 2014 that turned crimes like commercial burglary and grand theft into misdemeanors. As we keep saying, voters have no one to blame but themselves.
Gruel says the increase in crime has affected both the owners and employees, as well as the consumers. "From the business owner’s perspective, now we need to prepare for the inevitable crime that's about to hit, whether it's burglaries, whether it's smash-and-grabs, or even if it's scammers, right? So that's not covered as much because the smash-and-grab stuff makes the headlines, but it's the scammers, it's all these little scams, everybody's trying to rip you off because under $900, you're not going to get busted for it."
The customers are afraid to even go out at night. And if they do, they don't bring cash, which affects both the servers trying to collect tips and an increase in credit card fees for the businesses.
Not that there aren't pockets of sanity in the state. Like New York, there are areas in California where laws are enforced, and it is safe to leave your home. But it's the whims of a handful of urban areas and the politicians who manipulate elections there that dictate to the rest of the state.
Local towns and villages do the best they can. State capitols keep making it more difficult to do so.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
