Green Tea (everybody wants vanilla, so let's throw 10 grand here and there at new flavors) and Grafton Furniture (let's hire someone to paint a ghastly mural on the front of the building) and Shuler's Bar-B-Q (does a part-time restaurant really need a gift shop of non-restaurant items? (The guess here is that the landlord, out of deference to the Barons' father, had been giving the brothers favorable terms and after seeing Lemonis enter the picture, decided the brothers didn't need his help anymore.) Surely, one would have to question pouring 6 digits of cash into a location that, according to what was later mentioned on the show, is subject to lease revocation at any time.
