Good Luck...
It's funny you should mention that, Vinny.

Mrs tx and I had the "Family Time" discussion long before my hare-brained idea of starting a BBQ Catering Company. In one way or another, each one of our family members has a place in our company, a specific job. We probably spend more time together when we cook and cater than we did before starting this endeavor. Hence the name "Family Tradition BBQ".

We have also hired some help to simply allow us to have time off away from the business. They run my trailer every other weekend. They are very trustworthy, and are almost part of our family, so they have an interest in expansion as well.

Your last two posts convinced me you should do it.

Opening a Brick and Mortar is always a gamble. However, given your shoes, I'd hit that!

By the way is the rent so cheap, because you are using your briskets as the bricks and your sauce as the mortar?

Love ya, brother!

Not sure why the rent is so cheap...yet. I'll have an update for you farkers on the building condition on Fri afternoon. Could be a letdown for all I know.

Okay, I was waiting for Grail...but since he is not here, if Mrs. Tex does the books, and the boys do all the cooking, what exactly is your roll?

Is anyone willing to give up some insider tips to a tenant lease space contract? I want to know about SOP's for terms, conditions and backout clauses.

WHAT?

Do I have some kind of reputation when it comes to Shane? I've never had a bad thing to say about him! Have I?
