Describe a family business you know
You should say:
What the business is
How you know it
What products it sells
Who the customers are
And how you like it
The family business I am going to tell you is a small restaurant near my home. It is run by a couple and their parents. Sometimes, their 16-year-old son also comes to help. The restaurant is so popular that you have to wait for about 10 minutes to get a seat during the lunchtime.
At first, I did not know it is a family business. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. I thought the women was the owner and everybody else was just her employees. Then one day, when I was eating, I heard that she called the waiter father. I was surprised and realized that they are a family. She told me that they came from the Southwest of China and many people there migrated to other cities to start their own businesses, most of which were restaurants.
The restaurant sells various noodles. They vary in length, width and taste. But all of them are tasty. Most of its customers are inhabitants nearby, but there are also people who hear about it from others and drive a long way to give it a try. I believe they will find the food is totally worth the effort.
I admire the family, who came to a foreign city and established their own business from nothing. They must have gone through a lot of difficulties and obstacles.
