Dude, I'm so sorry. Did he give you any idea how long he thinks he needs to research it?

I talked to him yesterday and asked if we could get this wrapped up today, but he said he probably won't be able to get it until Monday.

The worst is that he keeps telling me that he's not trying to be difficult and is doing everything he can to get us open ASAP. But what a load of crap, don't tell me that and drag your feet and keep giving excuses.

True, it is Friday, but is there anyone you can call to check if this is true for you?

Hang in there, it will be over soon enough and you will be slinging food. In an hour or two, I will be telling another budding restauranteur the exact same thing. This is the phase that sucks. Interestingly, most of the projects I do now, that involve multiple approvals, we now automatically roll an attorney to the front of the team. That is what is has come to out here.

Keep plugging away and in a couple of months when you are busy as F, you will start to forget about all the problems and delays. Your employees can see you are doing everything you can.
Sorry, going to rant here. Feel free to ignore.

True. However, the government does not need to be making it any harder than it needs to be. Sure, there is legitimate reasons for some regulation. As long as he is not serving up a side of salmonella, why does it make a difference whether or not he mops from a bucket or a sink? Most regulations now days are just barriers of entry to keep uppity entrepreneurs from upsetting the apple cart.

If this was yet another McDonalds, you can bet money they would have been opened by now. "Oh... everything looks ok Mr. Franchise Owner" *wink* *wink*

As a former inspector, there is another side.

Suppose the mechanical inspector signs off on the smoker, and he has no experience with them. Then, down the road, the thing catches fire and the kitchen workers can't get out. Someone dies. And the owner of said hypothetical business says 'well, the inspector approved it'. If he did, and there is a proven flaw that he missed, the City is now on the hook. No inspector should ever sign off on work that he either knows is defective, or does not know enough to properly inspect. The person who screwed this up is the original general contractor, who should have known what needed to be done, and done it. Had that happened, then the restaurant would be open.

It isn't always the governments fault.

Kind of interesting story about bucket or sink. A local Asian restaurant was discovered to be thawing chicken and fish in the mop sink.

Mention "Mop-Sink Chicken" for supper and everyone knew where to meet. Still do.

I've got a friend that has owned or been part owner in BBQ-Mexican and Italian restaurants. A couple tears (years) ago he got out. He now travels the SW consulting and teaching managers how to interact with customers, vendors government officials and employees for a large chain.

If you stay with it, you too will have that skill set

I agree with Landarc. I could not blame the guy for not signing off on something he is not 100% certain about

If he is just dragging his feet because he would rather go to a Christmas party or something thats another matter...

Now not to start a problem here, but this is a commercially produced smoker.
So if there were any "mishaps" that would be on the producer of the product. Not the city.
Does he go into this much for a gas oven that's commercially produced?
does any inspector?

yeah...but there is still the installation.

I just had a wood stove installed in my cabin.

It still had to be permitted and inspected by the county. It was a commercially produced stove, but the install can be balled up by the person putting it in very easily.
