TASTY CAFE Case written by Katherine Ploeger You own and work the Tasty Cafe, at the corner of Main and Second Streets, serving lunch and dinner to the downtown community. You have been in business for three years and have established a loyal following, but most customers drive to your Café, parking on the street. You are open from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Your busy hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 5 to 9 p.m. You close at 11 p.m. You employ a total of 25 employees; most are students working part time around school schedules. You have just received a letter from the city advising you that for the next six months, the city is installing new sewer and drainage pipes along Main Street, with a new branch line along Second Street. With the work schedule as it is, the city estimates your parking will disappear for most, if not all, of the six months of construction. You rely on street parking for your customers along with a small lot behind your café. The large lot next door is reserved for city employees, but it is never full, even during normal work hours. You’ve noticed that even at 2 p.m., the lot is only about half full.
