Instead of delaying for the Coke fountain machine, could you just sell cans or bottles for a week or 2? But I guess what's another couple weeks, eh?

Are you going to hang some art on the walls? A local q place had a sleek look like that and about 2 weeks into business people started signing his walls. It wasn't a idea he had but it has became a thing for customers to sign a little message. Review the food or just sign their name all over the place.

I already thought about that. If they are true with the two week timeframe, that's fine since it will probably take that long to tie up all the loose ends with employees, training, inspections, etc. But if there is a snag and the machine won't be coming on time, I will certainly sell bottles or cans if it means getting the doors open sooner.

That's a pretty neat idea. Not sure I'd want people writing on the walls I labored on for days though. Actually, I'm a bit of a part-time photographer, so the plan was to get some local photos I've done framed and filling out some of the bare spots on the wall.

One thing we did, was use butcher paper on the tables and put a cup of colored pencils in our condiment carrier for people to draw on the paper. We did switch to newsprint paper because it was cheaper.

Looks like things are coming along. If you are using local photos, do you have the same photo in different seasons. That way you can change with the seasons and have a fresh look.

I do, but it isn't very exciting without being filled with meat.

The paper is a good idea. I haven't settled on table coverings yet, so that might be something to look into.

And I'm not sure I have many of the exact same location in different seasons, but I do have a lot of photos from around town at varying times of year.

Great journey you have taken us on. I sure do appreciate it. When do you think you will finally open the doors? It would be great to see pics of your first customers and a frame with you first $$ in it.

As long as there are no delays with inspections, I'm hoping in about roughly two weeks. As I mentioned a little earlier, if the only unfinished item is the fountain soda, I'll move forward without that to start.
