Kitchen Nightmare

I love being Chef Ramsey in our little version of the show, but I bet he doesn't do the actual cleaning. Yuk.

The positives outweigh the negatives here by far, but as always, God is in the details.
Janine doing some considering

We are seriously considering this place, working the numbers-if you will, to asses what's being offered. 
Businesses selling their lease, with or without equipment/stock abound here and they're not so cheap. It's surprising considering most are selling a failing business. Our guy doesn't even own most of what you see (belongs to the landlord), but he does have the right to sell a chance to be the next chump to take a shot.

Down here? The next big thing performing tonight!

cool basement

A Brooklyn style coffee shop is sure to be a hit. 
We have in mind some changes to this place; in appearance and to infuse some much needed energy. It appears to be sleeping now.

It's got some style already

We are consulting anyone we think may be able to help; assembling plenty of facts and even some projections, but we can only guess at what it's actually worth. Plus, even if we find those who know enough to really guide or dissuade us, will they say?

In the end our talent, wits and perseverance will have to carry the day.


I see good things coming. 
I can even taste them.

  1. Love the tall windows.
    Questions to (maybe) help determine value
    How long has it been on the market?
    Is it open and running or closed? If it's open and running you should become a regular customer--then you will really see what is going on.
    Very exciting, Gordon.
