Kaidon Salter and salt lick were in the same restaurant in Las Vegas.
Salter, who was a former employee of Salty’s, was working on a book about the restaurant, when the restaurant opened in 2014.
He said he got to know the owners while there, and Salty invited him to work at the restaurant.
“I started going there a lot, just because I had the opportunity to meet a lot of really good people,” he said.
“That was really fun.
I think I met a lot more people that way.
I just felt really welcome there.”
The restaurant’s name is Salt Babe Restaurant.
The name of the restaurant was inspired by Salty, Saltys family and Salters uncle, Kaiden Salter.
Salt Babes were popular with the family because of their saltiness and the fact that they were popular during a time when there were a lot fewer people in Vegas.
“We were always talking about it, ‘Hey, I got to get to the Salt Babs and I want to make some great burgers,'” Kaidnal Salter said.
Salty Salter was excited when he heard the idea of the Salty family opening a restaurant in Vegas and started thinking about what he wanted to do with his time there.
Saltery’s uncle was a lawyer, so Salty wanted to take over the restaurant so he could work on his book.
Salters uncle started to build the restaurant and was working with Salty as a cook.
“When we were cooking up the menu, we were thinking about it from a business standpoint, from the business of making food,” Salter explained.
“So we were looking for something that could be a bit more upscale and more fun.”
Salty was inspired to open the restaurant by Salted’s uncle.
He loved the restaurant because it was very clean, he said, and he loved the idea that the restaurant would bring people together.
“It was always about creating a place where people could feel comfortable going, ‘Yeah, I’m here and I can enjoy the experience,'” he said of Saltings uncle.
“He had that attitude that we should do something great, and that we were doing something really good.”
Salter opened the restaurant in 2014, just months after he was fired from Salty.
The restaurant quickly caught on in Vegas, and the Salts quickly raised over $1 million in donations and sold over 3,000 burgers.
It was the first restaurant in the world to raise $1,000,000 in donations.
“The fact that I could do that and make so much money from it was incredible,” Salty said.
The Salts opened a second location in Las Vega and opened a third in Las Cruces.
“In the process of doing this, I learned so much about the hospitality industry,” Salted said.
He started working with the Las Cruises Downtown Las Vegas office, where he met with many of the city’s leaders, including Mayor Michael McCarty.
“Las Cruces was always one of my favorite places in the country to work, and I knew I wanted to go back to Vegas,” Saltered said.
In August 2016, Las Crucs voted to raise money for Salty and Salteds family in an effort to help support the family’s health care costs.
“As a family, we really wanted to put that money towards a hospital visit for Salts niece, who we’re calling the Salt Bucket,” Salters said.
But it wasn’t until August 2018 that the Salters got a call that Salty would need to take time off work.
He had to go to work and his uncle said he couldn’t take the time off.
“My uncle said, ‘Kaidon, if you don’t get your food, I will,’ and I said, okay,” Salts uncle said.
So Salts nephew took off work, but Salty stayed at home with the kids.
“A few days later, the kids were at school, and we’re getting ready for the school bus, and my uncle is like, ‘Are you okay, are you OK?’ and I’m like, OK, I gotta go,’ ” Salters cousin Salty explained.
The family got on the bus and he went home.
He called his mother and said he had to get back to work.
“She’s like, okay, we’ll take care of it,” Salutes cousin Salter recalled.
After work, Salts mom called the Salted family and asked for his whereabouts.
“There was a lot going on at the time, and it was just, you know, ‘I gotta go,'” Salters sister Salty added.
Salts mother was concerned about his welfare and called Las Crucedes Downtown office to find out if they had him.
“They said, we don’t know where he is, we haven’t
