How Small Businesses Can Balance Personal Beliefs And The Bottom Line
A small, independently owned Mexican restaurant near Tucson received some surprising publicity last week when President Donald Trump tweeted his endorsement for Sammy’s Mexican Grill.
The restaurant’s owners had attended the president’s most recent rally in Phoenix and were recognized in the crowd by Tucson residents who took to Facebook and Yelp to leave negative reviews for the restaurant.
The food is GREAT at Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona. Congratulations to Betty & Jorge Rivas on doing such a wonderful job. I will try hard to stop by the next time I am in Phoenix. Support Sammy’s! @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 1, 2020
