Before Gordon's Arrival

Terry and Carol Gilmer, a husband and wife always wanted to buy Cafe 36, a restaurant in LaGrange, Illinois that they had frequently as far back as when they dated in high school. They spent a lot of money to buy it. Terry believes in his head chef Pinto, but the rest of the staff doesn't. The business is struggling. Terry and Carol haven't even been able to pay themselves.
