The past two years have been tough on the restaurant industry. It's no surprise that the unique set of challenges restaurant owners have faced made some reevaluate if they'd like to stay in the industry.

However, owning a restaurant in Boise comes with increased challenges because of how overvalued our real estate market is. Some local restaurants that were doing well suddenly found themselves wondering how they could afford inflated prices of supplies and continue to pay their employees after being hit with BIG rent increases when it came time to renew the lease. A handful of them folded because they realized there was absolutely no way to make it work.
