Owner Selling 6,000-Square-Foot Texas Restaurant to Pay Server’s Medical Bills
After almost two decades in business, Montgomery, Texas, restaurant owner Michael De Beyer has decided to sell Kaiserhof Restaurant and Wunderbar so he can help offset the medical bills of employee Brittany Mathis. The 19-year-old, who works alongside her mother and sister at the German restaurant, was diagnosed with a brain tumor but has no health insurance. (She's not yet signed up for medical insurance through the Affordable Care Act, she explains.) De Beyer hopes to give Mathis $2 million, and in addition to the prospect of getting more time with his family, he says he just can't stand by and watch his employee get sicker. "I have to try something because it's not right," he tells KHOU News.
