“When we added the seating area to our restaurant we didn’t really have any choice. We put it on our credit card. It was about $6500 at 18% interest. We knew we could at least pay off the interest every month, and just hoped that making good, home-made food from scratch, using meat and produce from local farmers would bring us enough business to actually stay in business.” ANGELINA KOULIZAKIS-BATTISTE, owner, Angelina's Kitchen in Pittsboro, NC.
