Rubicon, The Epilogue

2008_08_rubiconsm.jpgYesterday, Rubicon overlord Drew Nieporent alluded to high business costs unique to San Francisco, and today he shares hard figures: "'The rent was $60,000 more than any of our places in New York,' said Nieporent. 'The payroll in San Francisco was $100,000 more than New York. And San Francisco's health insurance requirements were killing us. The restaurant was doing well, but we just couldn't make money.'"
