So, where is the $15,000 being spent? Is the village going to get it back?

John Winter the owner of Burrito Jonz failed to make his first mandated repayment of the $15,000 loan he received from the village ($270 due on April 1).
Of course, that’s not his fault – he blames the village for not informing him where to mail the check.
LOL what a TOOL! Worse, a scammer.
The village offices are a half-block from the alleged Burrito Jonz location and we guess he can’t walk over and make his payment. Or pick up the phone if he feels a specific agency/address. Or use common sense and mail a check and letter to “Village of Herkimer” with the village offices address.
Check out his nutty post on the Burrito Facebook page in which he claims Herkimer officials are “pathetic” and Main St.“looks like crap.”

How’s Herkimer location coming along you ask? Good but the village is no help once again.
See attached official jpeg of Nick Macri's letter to us, the owners of BURRITO JONZ. First our names are spelled wrong and second there is no so-called "table" enclosed.
Instead of picking up the phone to call us or our business advisors at SUNYIT, which would not have cost the tax payer a dime, Macri has chosen to spread his peacock feathers once again, and billed the taxpayers of Herkimer an unnecessary charge for this draft of a letter.
Way to go Macri. You’re a class act. You really know how to get business to Herkimer and then support them for a WIN/WIN for the people of Herkimer.
Maybe this is why Main Street looks like crap. Macri and the Herkimer leadership are pathetic.
Even in Macri's legal letter he sent us today, he refuses to provide a village department phone number or any other helpful information on how to pay the loan. Instead he uses his time to threaten a BRAND NEW business in town.
He spends more time, which equates to the taxpayers of Herkimer's money, to write threatening letters instead of providing helpful information to pay the loan. Macri is an embarrassment to the people of Herkimer. So, someone needs to let us know where to send check.
In the months leading up to this letter Macri has spoken with Burrito Jonz ZERO times.
He had us, on his instruction, doing his work for him trying to file paperwork with the wrong departments, agencies, counties until we found out on our own that it was a state issue.
Everyday people walk into the Utica Jonz and when Macri is mentioned they simply "give that look"; you know the one, the one that shows that everyone in Herkimer knows how clueless he is. He has such a great reputation.
We are asking nicely to have Macri or any village official provides us with, what to write on the check as payee, an address, a department, or simply a person’s name at the village offices, so that we can pay the loan that THE PEOPLE OF HERKIMER have graciously let us borrowed.
I have sent a copy of this email & Macri's letter to the local paper like always because I don't trust the local government of Herkimer. They are capable of doing anything. First the village clerk harassed us using official email on official village time and now Macri’s letter. Who knows what they are capable of doing next. Feel free to use this email in the opinion page anywhere in your paper or the Observer Dispatch.
Jonz will be open soon. We are sorry for the delay. If the village had come through with the loan on time back in early fall, Jonz & our landlord, would have been able to open on time. The landlord and I have worked hard to get this second location of Burrito Jonz open despite of the non-existent help from the Village of Herkimer's ruling class. The village officials & the village attorney Macri actually think it is their money that is being lent, but we know it is the taxpayers money, and for that we thank you for providing some funds so we can bring the Burrito Jonz experience to you.
very interesting has he made any loan repayments yet?

Certainly makes you wonder what in god's name our brilliant village officials were thinking when they funded this joke. If they can't make decisions regarding 15k, how good are they at making larger financial decisions.

So why would he even want to open in Herkimer with all the negative posts? Maybe he is seeing how the folks would rather bash him than support him. Herkimer has a history of trying to destroy businesses instead of trying to help them. We all know the citizens of this great community would rather support that dive Ponderosa or Applebee's.

They speaks the truth. People of Herkimer will never be happy with ANY business that comes to the area. You're all a bunch of assholes who want shit to stay the same forever....guess what? LIFE DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!!!! Things come and go in that town because nobody wants to support what's local. You all really would rather go to Pondo, or Applebees. Nothing can survive in that town. He's better off thinking of a new location, paying back the loan, and going elsewhere. Herkimer is full of people who are full of themselves, and NOTHING is EVER good enough for you!

Something coming down the line. Wonder if they will arrest and charge him during his busy lunch hour. This guy has an excuse for EVERYTHING. People like him irritate me so much. Ever hear his bs excuse for using BONG in his phone number?

Maybe they will arrest him and his wife in front of their kids. She's apparently the owner. Wonder why Burrito jones is in her name? Oh cuz he doesnt pay his billz....

It's not Burrito Jonz's fault they can't open on Main St. Now National Grid is getting in the way and causing problems! How can a burrito shack open for business if the utility won't cooperate?

There's a conspiracy at work to prevent Burrito Jonz from opening with culprits including:

Nick Macri

Herkimer Village gov't -- didn't even tell Winter where to mail his loan repayment check !!!!!!!

Al Dorantes -- didn't get the flooring installed

And now National Grid!

Believe it, none of this delay is John Winter's fault! He will be open by 2017!

as of last week Burrito Jonz has cut back its Utica operations from 7 days a week to 3 days a week (Thu Fri Sat).

does that mean that Herkimer too will be open only 3 days a week? the owner says no, Herkimer will be open at least 5 days a week. he also claims that scaling back Utica operations will enable him to focus more on opening Herkimer.

still there have been no signs of recent activity at the Herkimer location. chairs and equipment remain scattered about the main floor unopened as they have been for weeks.

if all goes well, Burrito Jonz will be open before Christmas.
