Why doesn't Rita's spray/kill/get rid of their weeds out front? It looks awful!

Probably the same reason the boro doesn't spray the weeds or pick them out of the new triangle downtown. That looks awful too.

Look at the weeds in the median right in front of Rita's. How about the weeds at 309 and 663 in front of the mattress place. Or better yet, Vision Optics right in front of Rita's. You know why the places look so bad, because there is no pride of ownership. Don't spend money at these businesses.

Check out the promenade, gorgeous outdoor mall and weedless.

Another reason I got the hell out of Quakertown!!!

totally agree with the original poster. they went through all the trouble to fix up the place and put in their own landscaping, but the weeds by the road are 3-feet high.

especially for an eating establishment, it justs makes me cringe. like someone else said, it speaks to pride of ownership. if you don't care enough about your business to make it as attractive as possible to customers, i do not plan to eat there.

that's one main reason why i won't buy anything edible at the q-mart. if the plastic hoses with black mold coming from every point in the ceiling to trash barrels in the aisles are any indication of the cleanliness of the place, no thanks. that along with the tumbleweeds of dust and dirt, make me cringe.

if that's what i can see, what can't i see behind the counter or in your cooler?

If you actually read the topic about the pizza shop it wasn't at all about waiting a minute.

Your obvious a troll looking to start fights. I'm on lunch break and you posted at 3am in my pizza topic.

Talk about needing to get a life!

Oh and I totally agree about the weeds. Seems like Quakertown business owners don't care about anything but money but don't want to work for it.

That's a legitimate complaint. The 1-800 Mattress property looks completely unkempt too - is that place open? The Rita's location doesn't seem to be working out that well for them either, never seems busy.

Oh I see someone else commented on 1-800 mattress. Can't the Borough enforce that somehow?

Well, I agree--not getting my business with a nasty appearance doesn't matter what type of business it is but definitely not a food service place...makes me wonder what's inside. A bit judgemental....YES, sorry if it offends, it's my money. It's a reflection of the owner's character just as important as the appearance of his/her staff and quality of service.
It's the same with a lot of properties in Q-town. Disgusting..no pride. It doesn't take much to mow the lawn once a week and just your sweat to weed.

Lots of "businesses" in the Quakertown/Richland area are not kept up or cared about.

Lee's, Patio Court Motel, the junk yard across the street from Hess on the corner and the place next to it, the pet shop on 309 that always has tires and crap for sale chained to a pole in front of the store, the property next to the adult store, the property across my Redners where the geese hang out...

The area is disgusting.

Don't forget the old carpet store on 309 across the street from the junk yard lot. The place has weeds growing everywhere and is for sale. It has rusty falling apart awnings and paint peeling everywhere...

Or you could just post on TOPIX and hope that the business owners go there for valuable, unbiased, input on how to run their business.

I will make it a point to drive to Rita's in the next week or so as opposed to going to Maggie Moos or The inside Scoop. Just this once though to show my appreciation.

Save your gas and stay in Lehigh County. Rita's survived without you before. Nno need to come and show your appreciation now.

I don't think weeds growing out of control is attractive either. Especially if you're a business. I know I'm inclined to go into a place that has a pleasant appearance.

I have to say, though, that Quakertown really isn't any dirtier or cleaner than most places I've traveled. If you drive through any town with businesses in America, you are going to find unkempt properties, trash in the streets, closed businesses, scruffy-looking people, and an assortment of other unpleasant things.

Really, even in the mountains of Wyoming, we stopped at a little convenience store in the middle of nowhere. It was surround by shrubs and growing undergrowth and was somewhat cluttered and unkempt, but you know what? We weren't there to judge the environment. When you're thirsty and hungry you're happy to find a place in the middle of nowhere.
Same with traveling through the Mojave desert.

Hey, you'd probably complain about the tumbleweeds and prairie dogs too!

It's funny McDonalds takes really good care of their property and they sell garbage for a buck. Anyone notice the amazingly beautiful flowers at the speakers in the drive thru? So beautiful to look at it makes you feel like your not even in that hell hole called Quakertown.
