TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY VEGAN RESTAURANT FÜD SHUTS DOWN AFTER EMPLOYEE VS. OWNER DEBATE DRAMA OVER PREZ TRUMP!!!



Last month we talked about local vegan restaurant FÜD making a comeback after high drama betwixt most of the staff vs. owner Heidi VanPelt-Belle.



Sadly, the effort was short-lived . . . And it seems that political talk among restaurant staff was so divisive and unproductive that it sparked the inevitable shut down of the restaurant.



Social media chatter and a follow-up from The Pitch revealed that Heidi was willing to listen to Alex Jones & Prez Trump while a great many of her staffers found any bi-partisan talk and conspiracy talk offensive and so they staged a walkout. The operation never recovered from hard feelings and a litany of ensuing bad reviews.

And now . . .

CHECK THIS TKC EXCLUSIVE SHOT OF KANSAS CITY VEGAN RESTAURANT FÜD PACKING IT UP UNDER THE COVER OF DARKNESS!!!

Sent by one of our AWESOME TIPSTERS on her way to grab some late night junk food . . .



And while this shot might not be pretty, it's a reality check about the divisive political discourse and how it really can put places out of business when people let their ideologies ruin their work.

You decide . . .

The fight with employees might have been the last straw, but Fud was never going to make it for very long.

More of a vanity project that probably never had much of a chance.

At least they went out with a burst of glory!

And all the libs lost their jobs.

That's liberalism in action for ya.

Fascists, bereft of any response other than "You're a racist!" resort to destruction when confronted with facts or the need for intelligent discourse in the face of disagreement.

"“It is a general popular error to imagine the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare.”
― Edmund Burke

The lesson here is politics should not be discussed in the workplace, especially if one can't tolerate disagreement. Heidi seems like a fruitcake who wanted to enforce her views on her employees. That doesn't work.

Total BS. Businesses close because they can't play the rent.

^^^ Not very intellectually curious. It seems like they were managing to pay their rent before they let politics get in the way of business. Probably a good lesson for all Americans.

6:08am is right.
And you'll see lots of other similar start-up failures after the enthusiasm of the millenial "entrepreneurs" with the latest T-shirt shop or cold brew coffee place runs headlong into the realities of supply and demand and financial arithmetic.
Have you ever noticed that the great majority of new openings are taking place in the location of a "former" business.
Reality can be cruel.

No customers. End of drama.

@6:07AM. Here's another lesson. Don't open a business in KC Proper.

The area is not business friendly. The city will drain you of whatever profit you make via taxes for things like a toy train to nowhere, a arena without a NBA or NHL team and a entertainment district no one really goes too. But were told are going gangbusters by the city.

You risk your business, clientele and employees getting robbed or worst in high crime area's. Then the employees of your business will more then likely not be the best and brightest.

Would she still be in business if she stated in one of the many local burbs? Who knows. But if your a small business owner KC Proper should be the last place you open shop at.

You want to make a profit in the restaurant Business. Get a food truck. You don't have to pay the eight thousand dollar a month rent and high utility bills. That 8000.00 IS YOUR PROFITS.

And you know there are County fairs all over the state of Missouri and kansas,take the food truck and put some meat on the menu.
