‘It’s happening’: Myrtle Beach businesses that opened during the pandemic getting first taste of busy season
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – The first year is the toughest for all business owners, but the pressure was amplified for those who opened their doors for the first time during the pandemic.
Dara Sawczuk and her husband, Adrian, opened Tidal Creek Brewhouse in June after nearly three years of planning.
“While all the mayhem was going on we were still doing construction,” Dara Sawczuk said. “March comes around and everything is shutting down, so we stop, we look at each other and we say, ‘What do we do? Do we stop construction? Do we continue?’ We were already in it. We already had the financing, so we pushed on because we didn’t know. Was it going to be two weeks, was it going to be two months? Nobody had that crystal ball, and no one knew what was going to happen, so we kept pushing on.”
