For other businesses that do pretty well throughout the year, they are just glad to be a place people choose to treat their mothers.
“We have certainly seen more people come out today. I think that people are so excited in Wichita falls about eating local and coming downtown and seeing what happens down here. So we really saw that reflected in Mother’s Day. We were full, and all the reservations were sold out. It was really cool to give these wonderful Mothers that work so hard all year round an opportunity to relax and let us make breakfast,”said Amber Schacter, owner of Karat Bar and Bistro.
