Andrew Gruel, the founder and CEO of Huntington Beach seafood franchise Slapfish, blew up on Twitter over how California’s increasingly draconian lockdown orders are crushing small businesses.
1Do as I say, not as I do
Gruel’s rant kicked off Wednesday morning when he witnessed a government brunch meeting. “Shutting down small businesses right ahead of the holidays, with no relief, while the rulers break their own mandates is not going to end well,” he tweeted.
Just drove by a California government brunch meeting. They were all hugging, eating off a large buffet inside, enjoying unpasteurized cheese, drinking with straws, and breaking styrofoam to relieve aggression. It's a tough life to lead.
