Chop Shop is a high-end butcher shop with table service. It’s also a passion project for the three couples doing it together. We’re talking to each couple separately about the journey. Dan and Courtnay have an unusual story. They knew they’d be getting married by the end of the first date. And Dan was part of a small military unit. He was often leaving home for months at a time, which created stress. But these two don’t mess around. They get down to business and call ‘em like they see ‘em. So, what’s it like plunging headlong into a new business during COVID 19? It could be a dangerous dream filled with fire and knives—but probably no live fire with automatic weapons. Life or death experience leads to perspective. It also makes complaints about the meal pale by comparison.
