Firewurst, a local restaurant startup is shutting down after 3 years: http://www.wral.com/local-franchise-firewurst-closing-its-doors/15199363/
While some restaurant (and other businesses) are poorly conceived….planned and operated…..Firewurst was not. It seemed they were well managed….and had good reviews. Perhaps they left their original location too soon….or focused too quickly on franchising. Or as they said maybe it was not the right product.
Either way….not every business concept is successful….markets change….or the market is simply not there.
