Ate there many times, very good food, it's alot more healthier then McDonalds, etc. The food is better, and nothing is frozen. The Oreo's be da shit. Really cheap also, you should try and eat there :).

Yes, we did close the doors. Unfortunately there was not enough business to keep the blls paid.

We want to thank each and every one of our customers for their patronage and support.

Your food was great and so were your prices. These things puzzle me. Since McDonalds and all the rest are always busy why is it that the people did not come to a place with better food? Branding? Marketing? Atmosphere? Herd mentality? I am honestly stumped...

I loved the food too. I think location! With the other fast food places they have bigger parking lots, drive thrus, etc.

We honestly do not know. We tried everything we could think of, marketing (paper, radio, flyers), facebook...etc. With the old location, parking was an issue, but the new place had plenty of parking, BIG road sign.
The one thing that seemed really strange was that we never had regular sales.
I have managed for a lot of years and every place I worked at had sales that would start out the first of the week and build up to the weekend with the highest sales on Fri,Sat and then back down on Sunday. From day one we never knew what one day held to the next concerning sales. Very erratc. Sales for one day might have a great lunch and then no dinner sales or the other way around. One week a Fridays sales would be great, the next Friday would be worse than a Mondays sales. For the year and a half that we were open, there were not two weeks in a row with consistant sales.

I'm really sorry to hear you closed. Again I liked the food, think it's just hard for a small business to make it.
Nice

Again, I thought your food was awesome and the friendliness of staff. I appreciate your candor. This is truly a study in people's behavior. I would appreciate further discussion of why pepl will wait in line for crappy food and then complain there is nowhere to eat..

I still think it was location that killed you. Even in the new place you either parked out back or in the few up front. Every business there has failed. Hard to get out of front lot when traffic coming.

Where would be a good vacant location for a restaurant along the main drag?
