Have you been to Bisco's? Why would you want another one of those?

For those of you that haven't heard, Deja Vu in Port Huron closed the doors because of slow business. Instead of brining a topless bar or Hooters to town, how about a business that would have a more diverse client base? Not sure if we could get Applebee's or Red Lobster, but even National Coney Island would draw more business and present a better image for the community.

I don't think there are enough people who stay in town during the day to support a business like that, unfortunately. Maybe once Keihin gets going or if another larger business like them comes in as well.

Then everyone can complain about tax and water breaks all over again!!

I would just be happy to see someone either open up something at Kincaids or even where the old Becky's was. A nice small town restaurant or bakery/deli would be nice. Just something other than pizza.

Something is going on at Becky's (Uncle Bills). The windows have been filled in and an addition added.

Anyone know what is happening?

I think I read a while ago, the Pharmacy bought that piece of property and will add on.
Not sure though

yep the pharmacy did buy Becky's. They are going to use it for storage and the like. I think it could've looked better when the outside was completed but hey...no real complaints. Someone at least is investing in our town. Maybe Sheldons will get a huge tax break also!! Anyone for a 12 year tax abatement....hahaaaa

I think it would be a bad idea to have a topless bar. Now a Hooters?....I can see that. "A family environment"

OK...so lets say that a merchant does purchase the AJ Kincaid property and it becomes a topless bar or a hooters...just have to wonder what will then become of our already established merchants such ad Good Time Charlies or Timmy D's...not to say (being a small community) that we DO NOT need this kind of example for our children imagine the curiosity for them raisings teens in todays times is hard enough...just my thoughts

A topless bar? No way. Bisco's was a thorn in the Village of Emmett's side for years, and it took alot of legal pressure and pressure from it's citizens to get rid of it.

Hooter's? Not likely. Too many closing, and local economy wouldn't support it.

"Founding Fathers" and Capac Council (and most likely most Capac citizens) wouldn't support either one.

How about something like the DQ "Grill & Chill" like Sandusky?

With Keihin starting up soon, Capac has no real fast food or quick sit-down places to support lunch hour for factory workers. McDonald's and Subway wouldn't be able to handle the rush.

Have a hunch we're going to see a BK or Wendy's or Taco Bell pop up out at the intersection.

With Paisano's and Kincaid's and Becky's gone, Capac needs a couple GOOD restaurants. Good Time Charlies has good food for lunch, but isn't my or my family's cup of tea later in the evening. Timmy D's? Surely you jest.

Of course, why would Capac want to entice anyone to come and build in town? Especially when you can just hop in your car and get on I-69 and head on over to Imlay City, get just about whatever you want to eat, and spend your money there?:|

You have alot of good points LabattsMan...one diff I have is that YES Capac should entice a good business to invest in our town whether it be wendys or BK or even taco bell it will be a hit here...well anyway you seem to know what you are talking about...so we ingrates will just have to wait and see

Dogwood:

Sir or Madame, I believe you have misunderstood my last point and parting shot in my post. Capac, as a whole, either through it's citizens, Council, or the infamous "good-ole-boy" network, has resisted change in the form of business development for YEARS.

I was in fact suprised that Keihin was allowed in... particularly after previous suitors for the same property were thwarted. Other suitors for property in the immediate vicinity of I-69 and Koehn Road face the same obstacles.

I would welcome more restaurants in Capac. MUCH MUCH MUCH more convenient than running into Imlay City... but therin lies the problem... Imlay City welcomed those restaurants with open arms... and now it will be difficult to get another franchise established within 6 miles.

Hmmmm... a little foresight goes a long way.:|

BRING ON THE FOOD...yeah the more fast (FAT) food we get in Capac the more money that Curves gets in their pockets...anyhow...why don't the merchant that is (so-called) perchasing Kincaids give the option to a pool hall...a good family environment with a snack bar...ran very well just like the Gathering.
Sounds good

Something like that sounds great. Let's just hope the council doesn't tax them per table.

The thought of a pool hall would be a great idea, but like (Sounds Good) comment about the Village tax, it would be impossible. Not only would they tax every table ,they would tax every ball ,every cue stick and have surplus tax just to use the rack. The proposal would end up being snookered.Why don't we go all out and try for a casino.Lots of revenue ample tax money and the Village won't break the bank

Loui's has already gotten the place and word is they are going for a alcohol permit. Perhaps they will provide us with something quaint and a little upscale. It could possibly be more attractive than your average chain restaurant. Who knows, I suppose it will depend on the quality of the food but if it is good they have a chance, but I believe it is a done deal. Besides anything is better than crap Kincaids was dishing out.
