This type of news is absolutely devastating to Tyler, Texas business owners who are just trying to make their dreams come true. I was shocked when I saw the video online from the restaurant in Tyler called Lemon Yellow Latin Bites. While I have never visited their business myself I was always intrigued by their name and the pictures of their food and treats always looked so good. But there was a problem with their Quickbooks accounting program which means they never collected payment from customers for a full month. 

According to the business owners the issue took place from August 4th to September 4th. Something went wrong at their point-of-sale system went to inactive mode, so they never actually took payment for those transactions. For a business that has been open for less than one year at this point dealing with something like this is heartbreaking.
