Local Restaurants Not Stressing About Summer Business

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- With graduation wrapping up and students moving out of the city, business in East Lansing can tend to slow down over the summer months.

Slower summer months are just part of the deal with you run a business in a college town. That's what Moe's Southwest Grill General Manager Derrick Austin said.

The owner of the Peanut Barrel said the same thing. There are fewer people in town and there's nothing they can do about it.

Austin said they are expecting about a 2 percent drop in sales over the summer, but he also said the Mexican Cantina plans to do a lot of catering, which will make up for any loss in sales.

Moe's which does not serve alcohol, already caters to all kinds of customers, not just students, he said. 

"We get more families in this place than anything," Austin said. "I mean, the kids are gone but all of them are not gone. We got the basketball things and the football things. I think we're going to be fine."

Moe's might tell a different story at the end of the summer, but today, they're not worrying about it.
