This week we welcome Harvey’s Bar & Grill to Cornelius. The restaurant got its start in the Vermillion Community in Huntersville, probably the toughest location for a restaurant/bar I’ve ever seen –  over the tracks off Exit 23 and way off the beaten path.

The owners of Harvey’s are Luke and Charlie. After they took over from the four previous proprietors, who consistently lost money on the location, they turned it profitable in just a little over a month. How did they do it?
