Pass The Cheese Dip

Juanita's and the Blue Mesa restaurants, run by Mark Abernathy of Little Rock, recently settled a $30,000 dispute with a vendor and started whispers that the operation was undergoing a refinancing and having trouble paying other vendors.

Not so, says Abernathy, whose operation will have a record gross of more than $3 million this year -- up from last year by 15- 20 percent. Abernathy says he isn't refinancing but has paid off some debt.

Blue Mesa, he asserts, had a rocky fall but is bouncing into the holiday season with better sales due to a new marketing slant and a good music program. Still, Abernathy admits, Blue Mesa "isn't doing as well as it could."
