Using all of their available food and even seemingly simplistic cooking methods is all about the bottom line. "That revenue stream is important to The Proper Pig," Sawyer said. "And I can teach them how to use it."
But what he didn't teach them was how to set up an actual restaurant. Instead of trying to impress with a well-thought-out eatery, they opted for a few tables covered with black cloth and some chairs.
"We want to let the food do all the talking for us," Vidovic said.
Breakfast was a hit. And they even used inspiration from Sawyer to create a new BBQ sandwich using doughnuts from a local shop.
But the "Cleveland Hustles" team was far less impressed with what The Proper Pig founders did inside the shop.
The show's host, Bonin Bough, said: "They were supposed to create a restaurant feeling here, and all they did was put up some picnic tables."
In the end, The Proper Pig also fell short of its goals. Instead of 200 customers, 185 showed up, and the $1,300 in sales was $200 short of the target.
Futey ultimately decided not to invest in The Proper Pig, opting instead to invest in a yoga studio.
Futey explained her decision: "They didn't properly prepare for the day. Their dining area lacked ambiance. Ultimately, I just think they need more time."
