Your Almond Joy pancakes are in danger! Despite its booming business, The Friendly Toast is facing serious financial trouble, reports The Tech. Due to $83,000 in necessary renovations to the Portsmouth location and $50,000 spent on training unnecessary staff for the Cambridge opening, owner Melissa Jasper and her husband Robert are in over $150,000 in debt. Jasper estimates that the stream of customers can keep the Toast afloat through winter, so if you love the andama bread, get out there now.
