AJ Hunter is the proprietor of Baseline Sports Bar. When the pub was on the market in 2005, she purchased it. To fund the bar, AJ took out a $250,000 mortgage on her home. AJ planned to revamp the pub by recruiting an all-female crew. Baseline is producing $29 less than the break-even figure of $150 per square foot.
Brandy claims that the pub lacks an appealing environment, which makes her feel uneasy. Two girls are battling in a kiddie pool loaded with spaghetti. AJ claims that they are doing this while they can. AJ understands that she and her children must take this seriously to restore the bar’s prosperity.
Xantia and Diva missed the $1,000 mark by $10, but Jon compensates them. The bartenders have a lot to work on, but Jon threatens that one of them will be fired if they don’t get it together. Many diners have their meals but no beverages. AJ and her crew are thrilled with the new design of their pub. The walk-in door is now closed, and a Heineken Brew Lock system has been installed.
Brandy has returned, and her impression of the environment has shifted; she now describes it as “warm and inviting.” Customers are pretty complimentary about the new bar. The kitchen is doing admirably, with a 5-minute ticket time. Communication has increased across the pub, and there are now many more female patrons. The entire family thanks, Jon. Jon claims that his job here is finished but that theirs is just getting started.
