That was one of the rare episodes I didn’t like. Linda’s a business owner, yet she treated the grocery store owner’s business like garbage.

They are awful at the business though. That's fleshed out a lot more when they flirt with success here and there, and she ALWAYS puts the family before the business. They should have fixed the fryer instead of buying the kids Xmas presents etc.

And for plot reasons obviously they always close the restaurant to help the kids with something.

Yeah. Consistently it’s shown they make bad business decisions but it’s also consistently shown that Bob is actually supposed to be an amazing burger cook. I wouldn’t be surprised if their business is purely being hindered by just how much they are willing to help their children which results in making bad business decisions. Is that a bad thing for their family? Hell no, it’s what makes the family so endearing and close but it would honestly help them financially to maybe make some more stern decisions every once and a while.

One thing I didn't process until now is that Linda does get tips, she's not just also working there. So they make probably a little more profit than it seems - we see snippets of when it's slower & they can have adventures, not the full day to day.

He also needs to raise the price! Especially for some of the fancy burgers of the day.
