Bits and Pieces

Oro Valley-owned restaurants and catering lose $37,000 in July
The La Vista Restaurant, the Garden Café, banquet and catering activities and beverage cart operations are associated with the Oro Valley Community Center and Recreation Center. These operations lost approximately $37,000 for the month of July.

 "Total revenues were $34,002 and total expenses were $71,043 for a net loss of $37,041. While revenues exceeded budget by $1,380, or 4%, expenses were higher than budget due primarily to 4th of July holiday pay, increased overtime due to staff vacancies and cost of sales for food."
