CHICO, Calif. - One local business owner is frustrated over what he calls a lack of people following state safety measures, now he's forced to change his game again.

Scott Schulman, owner of Broadway Heights in Chico says things were going well at his restaurant when they reopened for dine-in a few weeks ago but was frustrated when they had to shut down indoors again. He believes it happened because many people weren't following the state guidelines.

"Very frustrating, I got angry, I watched people in my business doing the wrong thing and customers doing the wrong thing and not taking it seriously and we work hard trying to do it right up here and then it gets pulled out from underneath you," said Schulman.

"That’s a sentiment that the city has heard on numerous occasions, there’s a high level of frustration across the board for many reasons, I think that’s why the city council emphasized the fact that we need to be educating the public over and over and over again. And hence why the city is focusing on this right now," said Chico City Manager, Mark Orme.

But now he's working to open up an outdoor dining area to stay afloat while the county is on the watchlist.

He says it will be challenging since they will have to bring food downstairs but says he's excited because he will be able to hire a few extra people.

"We have some logistics since we are on the second floor, but I think we are going to have a beautiful patio in the alley behind us. The logistics we have to figure out hopefully by Monday we will be able to serve hopefully, 50 people at a time," said Schulman.

It's a park-like atmosphere with trees and shade. Schulman says he plans to purchase some misters and fans.

He says he turned in the paperwork for the outdoor patio today.

Right now the restaurant is offering takeout and curbside pickup daily.
