Last month was Zach's birthday. He is my baby brother, and also my business partner. You may have seen him in the Pig early in the mornings, ambling about nonchalantly, his hair standing straight up and with that shy grin on his face...but you may not understand that he is half of what makes this place tick. I am serious. The other half, my chef, Ray and me...yeah, we do work hard (very very hard) to make sure we feed you well. We work very hard to make sure the bills get paid, staff are happy, and the business thrives.
We do that because Zach believes in us. Because he encourages us, expects the best from us, pep talks us to keep us motivated, fights for us, fights with us to ensure we don't take the easy way out because we are so damn tired.
Zach is the coach that keeps this team together. Our winning streak has nothing to do with luck. It is because Zach still gives a damn.
Next time you order a coffee or enjoy lunch at the Pig, if you see Zach, with his flip flops on, say "hey"...
Thanks, dude, for everything.
