Nicotine Nannies claim smoking bans are good for business. But if that were the case, could this list exist, and could it be so huge? (Please note, this is only a small sample of articles available on the subject.)

Fayetteville Restaurant Owners Criticize Smoking Ban

Wednesday, June 9th, 2004

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Fayetteville’s smoking ban has been in place for several months, and some restaurant owners said Tuesday that they are shutting down because of it.

Casa Taco is one restaurant that recently closed its doors. The owner told 40/29’s Melissa Kelly that the smoking ban snuffed out his sales.

“Sales dropped off dramatically,” said Alex Hunt. “We lost our late-night business … a lot of people come in after the bars close.”

Along with Hunt, the owners of the Ozark Brewing Co. and Café Santa Fe said the smoking ban was a factor in their decisions to close.

On Dickson Street, some restaurant owners say their late-night business is down by as much as 25 percent.
