Looking forward to all the updates.

One thing I've learned over the years as a facility manager... Keep your HVAC stuff clean and well maintained and it will save you money and lots of aggravation. Also, don't buy used unless the equipment is almost new. New refrigerant comes out and the old stuff just gets more expensive. Not fun paying hundreds for refrigerant when the newer stuff is like $10 a pound or less.

My son is a Sous Chef at Epcott in Florida. He says the first thing he does when he goes into any restaurant is check the bathrooms. If they're dirty dirty, they won't eat there.

Seems to me like a waste to do each time for every customer if you have a line, but a great idea if you don't.

If I was new on the block and no line, I'd be doing this or at least testing it.

Good luck with the restaurant. I too started a restaurant back in 2012. We started with a blank space and built it out. The owner had the space in the building they owned. It took us about 4 months from deciding to go forward to opening our doors. We did keep things simple and did buy used equipment. Most of the equipment was in really good shape and lasted for us. We lasted 5 years. Our problem was mostly location. If you need ideas for specials or just another set of eye to look at a problem just ask.

Default Drive Through

Good luck bro. Since you have limited dining and need to get customers in-n-out as fast as possible, I would invest in the drive through with decent signage and a good speaker system. People are rushed and want it fast. Plus, those on-line delivery types that can get in-n-out fast too are big with the millennials and the young. Late night BBQ drive through after partying? I’m all in!!! If I ever started a BBQ joint, I would insist on a drive through option. Imagine Franklin with a drive through? You have a road right in front of the business for Christ’s sake. Grab those who want it fast and not get out of the car. I’ll take a brisket Sammich, extra sauce and a Pepsi to go...
