Economic Freedom: Restaurant Bans Kids 5 & Under 

True freedom in society means some stances maybe tough to swallow for some. It also means when a business decides to limit types of customers, the consumers decide with their money if it’s the right one or not.

Here’s a prime example out of North Carolina:

Pasquale Caruso said that his recent decision to not allow children under age 5 into his upscale Italian restaurant in Mooresville had nothing to do with disliking children, and everything to do with the atmosphere he’s trying to create for the establishment.

Recently, the Brawley School Road restaurant has come under fire on social media for its policy, which was actually put into place before Christmas. Caruso said he was surprised that it was receiving so much attention now, since it’s not new.

He said that he was “starting to lose money and customers, because I had very young children coming in, throwing food, running around and screaming.”

“I had several customers complain, get up and leave because children were bothering them, and the parents were doing nothing,” he said.

“People don’t want to come in and spend money on a nice meal and an evening out, when there’s constantly food on the floor, loud electronic devices keeping kids entertained, and small children screaming,” he said. “It was just the right decision for my business.
