Ever wonder how much a bowl of beef pho costs to make? If you’re a customer, when you pay $8 for a bowl of beef pho, what are you really getting?

This is the story of a failing pho restaurant I tried but couldn’t help. It has lots of potentials, but sadly it’s probably not going to make it. No pho restaurant fails all of a sudden. Either it didn’t start out right to begin with, or it’s a gradual slide to the abyss of no revenue.

Yet some pull through but others continue their path to closure. I hope this story helps someone.
