Hungover Customer Brings Heaps Of Business To Struggling Restaurant

August 29, 2016

Up until a few days ago, business was "absolutely terrible" at John McMillan's little fish and chips shop in Lethbridge, Alberta. But that all changed after a very hungry and hungover customer walked through his doors.

"I had a few drinks the night before and I was feeling like some grease," Colin Ross told the Calgary Eyeopener.

He struck up a conversation with the friendly 69-year-old owner, who fixed him a three-piece halibut on a bed of fries.

Ross devoured his meal and his hangover began to dull. As clarity set in, he realized the shop was pretty empty.

"I just seen a really good establishment with really good food that deserved a lineup through the door."

He told McMillan he was going to help him.

"He says, 'I've got 2,000 friends on Facebook,'" said McMillan, who didn't really know what that meant because he's "not into a lot of computer stuff."

Ross's glowing review of Whitbie's Fish & Chips on his Facebook page has had more than 8,000 shares and has brought hundreds of new customers through the door.

"Our business has just gone right through the roof to the point where, you know, we've got people waiting an hour and a half to an hour and three quarters for their dinner," McMillan said.

McMillan has had to recruit family and friends to help him out, but sure isn't complaining.
