It’s real. As of this writing, I don’t know if I’ll ever own a ramen shop again. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s just that I don’t think I have the heart to do it anymore.
The evolution of Ramen Shack was such a precious thing. The magic I discovered throughout the process will never be duplicated. And not to toot my own horn, but there will never be another ramen shop like it in America.
Ramen Shack did not fail. It did not close because it was losing money. It failed because it was losing me.
Failure is sometimes inevitable. My critics will say that I was destined for it. But they will never be able to stand in my shoes.
Thank you to all my fans and followers for keeping my dream alive for so long. It’s not the end. It just feels like it is.
