Compadres Coda: Details Continue to Emerge After Yesterday's…

Details continue to emerge after yesterday's sudden Compadres shuttering, and only the Napa branch will survive the week: "'We just didn't have enough customers to compete with the tremendous costs we don't control,' [owner Rick] Enos said in a statement. 'Diners don't see the electric bill or the freight on avocados when they order their enchiladas. They only see the plate -- and we could only charge so much ... My only regret is that we didn't act sooner to sell or bring on a partner since the decline has not been an overnight occurrence.'" [BT, earlier]
