This guy's a real hero.

Seeing a lot of people post stories on their socials with lines like, "not all heroes wear capes."  It's cliche, it's shopworn, it's unoriginal, but dammit if it ain't great seeing it.  Because that means somebody must be doing something amazing for somebody else.

Bryan Morin.  He owns the Belmar restaurant Federico's, right there on Main Street.  Maybe you've been.  Great the sauce.  But if you're down in that area, please place an order soon, because Bryan just went above and beyond for his staff.  He took out a $50,000 line of credit, and made the 20 employees on Federico’s payroll a promise: No matter what happens over the next two months, they would still receive a paycheck.


Bryan's reasoning was simple, he said, “My father told us a long time ago: You’ve got to take care of your employees first, because without those employees, you don’t have a business at all"

Twelve year Federico's vet and current manager Chelsea Phillips says,  “I have a lot of friends who work as bartenders and waiters, and they have no idea what they’re going to do with themselves. When I tell them (what Morin did), they want to know why I’m so lucky to work for the greatest people.”

No shit. 

Bravo, Bryan. You are an inspiration.
