Hey Shane, I was talking about this deal with a friend out here who owns 4 restaurants, one of which is a BBQ place. He couldn't believe the deal you had in front of you in terms of rent and space. His thought was that if you are already paying for a commercial kitchen, and the numbers are even close, this is too good a deal to pass up.

That's where I won't be buying most of the stuff I need to do a few upgrades to the building.

The attorney should have a copy of the lease on his desk Monday morning, so, with any luck, and legalities are ironed out....

I could be the proud tenant of my own building by the end of next week!!

I thought of hiring Bubba, but he won't take "aged" brisket for payment.

You could get Billy to come down and help you out. Maybe he's still got the pink RV you could use as a construction office. I mean it is a Beauty Parlor...

Billy doesn't love me anymore. He won't return my calls.

See what you've done, Larry??

I was just starting to heal! Then you come along and rip open the scabs on a day that is supposed to be special!!!

I think you should go for it....... as long as you can afford to fail without putting your family on the street, or in serious debt. An opportunity like this may not come around again.

Good luck!

Just my 2 cents, You want a Take Out Place for now. If you wanted a sit down in the future what did the HD say about bathrooms, Handicap Accessible ETC... I seen business's here that were not resturants being required to jump thru all sorts of hoops and spend enormous amonts of cash just to satisfy the different inspectors. Is the signage, electric and Plumbing Etc... up to code as well? Is high speed internet available?

According to the codes, take out or sit down, it would fall under the same rules for ADA. Since the building is "grandfathered", meaning it was built and had no structural modifications since being built before the ADA standards came into place, i can exclude myself from these for now. However, should I decide to change the front door, I will have to update the whole building to ADA codes.(Which, to be honest, doesn't amount to much.)

Plumbing and electrical are modern, floor sinks and triple basins are in working order. I would need to move my SS tables and fridge into it and satisfy equipment standards to get my license. The would-be dining area needs to be updated and I may actually have to spend some money on flooring and decor, maybe even the serving counter I would need to be able to present a product.

The real question will be the Fire Marshall meeting I have next week. I insisted upon this due to my want of mounting the smoker inside, to be vented outside for security reasons. If the smoker inside is a no go, I will have to figure a way to secure the smoker at night while in operation. The drawback to that is another cost of running electricity to an outside receptacle with a manual cutoff.

I haven't even seen the lease at this point, so I'm trying not to get wound up just yet. The fine print and other details could tank this altogether.
