Salad paid the bills. At least, it was supposed to. If it wasn’t going to, Hailey
Sharp needed copious amounts of chocolate. In all fairness to her very quiet,
newly opened salad shop, By the Cup, she would use any excuse to feed her
Which was why she hadn’t gone the bakery or chocolate shop route—
she’d eat herself out of profits.
Looking around, desperate for something to do—or eat—that would take
her mind off the lack of customers, she debated going next door to Baked, the
coffee-shop-slash-bakery that served the most delicious brownie lava cakes.
Her Kindle was in her purse, just a few steps away, but if she went back to
the book she’d been reading, she wouldn’t come up for air. She was right at
that moment when everything was about to get so good, she wouldn’t be able
to tear herself away.
Her stomach growled, distracting her from the temptation of her latest
rom-com read. Whip up a salad. Her end-of-summer special was a dessert
salad, which she topped with dark chocolate shavings. She wasn’t in the
mood though. Had she made a mistake opening this store?
Why don’t I have customers? This is California for God’s sake. People
love their greens and mine come in handy little to-go cups, perfect for the
A few people walked past the shop window. They didn’t even glance in.
Maybe she should change the special. With that in mind, she grabbed a chalk
marker and a cloth, heading toward the door of her supposed-to-be-thriving
store. It’s been two weeks. Give it some time.
The heat hit her like a giant blanket when she stepped out onto the
sidewalk. She’d lived in California for years now, though she’d only moved
to San Verde recently, but some days the steady sunshine still surprised her.
Deciding to put her San Verde Sunshine Cup—a mixture of lettuces, assorted
yummy seeds, yellow tomatoes, and avocado with a homemade dressing—on
sale, she added it to the board.
Then, because she was only human, she tucked the marker and cloth into
the back pocket of her jeans and went into Baked.
Similar to her own store in layout, size, and the gorgeous picture window
with seating, it set itself apart with the number of customers. Plus, the smell.
Salad doesn’t smell. Hmm. Something to think about. Nothing lures people to
buy like the scent of something freshly made or appetizing. Like coffee.
She joined the line, thinking maybe that was the draw. Maybe she should
add some specialty iced teas or something.
Almost every table was full. She scanned the room, once again wondering
if she’d gone too far out of the box with her take-out, dine-in salad shop.
The line moved forward as people chatted and laughed over the sound of
coffee machines and music. I’ll bring my Bluetooth speaker. At least then it
won’t be so quiet.
