COPPERAS COVE (March 1, 2013) --- The Black Meg 43 restaurant in Copperas Cove, which was unexpectedly evicted from its location on Highway 190 near East Avenue D when CVS bought the lot, is enjoying a spike in business despite the streak of bad luck that also included a break-in and robbery of one of its employees.

After Black Meg 43 moved across the street and reopened at the beginning of February, burglars broke into the restaurant and a manager was robbed while making a night deposit days later.

"It definitely hurts when you’re a small business to have those things happen to you but we're making steps to try to prevent those from happening in the future," co-owner John Vasseur said.

But despite all the negatives, business has increased almost 25 percent during the first month of being in the new location.

"You just continue to go on and you know it's not going to stop us, we're going to keep on going," co-owner Doreen Vasseur said.

On Friday the Copperas Cove Police said the break-in and robbery are still being investigated and no arrests have been made.
