After a lot of thought and consideration we have decided to close Melvin's. We have enjoyed the past couple of years and now have proof of concept that there is demand for what we are doing. We have been overwhelmed by the response from our customers, especially in a city with so many dining options.
The decision to close the business stems from the birth of our baby girl this year. My working 12 to 14 hours per day is bad enough but my wife also has a demanding career that includes both long hours and extensive travel. The prospect of leaving our infant daughter in the hands of caregivers with such frequency has proven to be more than we are willing to sacrifice in order to keep the business going. I have decided to dedicate the next couple of years to raising our daughter and helping my wife, rather than being away from home, immersed in my career.
As of now, the plan is to re-launch the business, in one form or another, in the next few years. Continue to follow us on twitter.com at @delicomfort and on facebook.com for updates in 2017 or 2018. Until then, we would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped make Melvin's such a success, especially our customers. We look forward to seeing folks around town so don't be afraid to say hi!
Until Next Time,
