us up all the time and we know our viewers will come to love them as we

deliveries when Heather's father Brian, who's also their delivery man,
gets stuck in traffic – again – and Kathie, Heather's mom, works to keep
the peace. In episode 2, Heather and Lori find out how hard it is to find good help when
interviewing to grow their severely understaffed workforce after a
number of employees fail to show up for work.
