    Looking good, Mike.

    I can't wait to see pics on the opening!

    Best of Luck - the restaurant biz can be a tough.

    Thanks Kent, you will not believe what I have planned for my Grand Opening as far as decor and set up.
    And I am. Hope you make it up my way.
    Thx again.

    Grand opening pics will be off the wall, you have no idea what I have planned for decor. It will ROCK!.
    I know it will be tough, I went in with no debt, low rent ;) , hired a former manager from Oklahoma Joes, and am committed. Or might soon be. :laugh:

  • Looks great Mike - bringing samples to Oklahoma? B)

    I know you don't need luck but I'll say it anyways - good luck.

    Thanks for keeping us posted Mike......looks as if you've got everything in order and under control.

    The only constructive criticism I have is that your delivery radius falls woefully short of acceptable. I didn't even see Dayton on the map. What are us Daytonians supposed to do????

    It is all looking great Mike!! Wish I could be there to help. love jumping into the things like this :)

    Coming together, Mike, and looking good.

    That doesn't look like an FEC...or am I all wet?
  • Car Wash MikeCar Wash Mike Posts: 11,244
    Nope, that would be a Southern Pride. I have known the local distributor for 30 years. He has been a huge help.
    Thx,
