When I went to the meeting Sunday (a few weeks ago), I personally found only one person who had experience regarding both restaurant experience, and business experience. While of course all the others (sorry, Carl, bless your soul), the newbies up on stage had interesting career paths, they lacked both as mentioned.
As I have said in past times, if the (new) restaurant does not come with a TRIPLE NET LEASE, forget about it. Also, while I’m thinking and writing about it, it also DEMANDS a reasonable fee for the location to do business like EVERY OTHER COMPANY ON THE PLANET EXPECTS TO PAY FOR RENT. And that includes an IRONCLAD, LOCKED IN STONE AGREEMENT.
Believe it or not, the Bella days are gone, and we have restaurants lining the streets everywhere from Eastern Ave to Bicentennial. We have a fairly successful restaurant at Revere, so if you drive, which I’m sure 99% do, what else are the board members expecting from this new restaurant? How many more do we really need?
On a similar note what can be expected from the membership when they can’t even sign a doc for the 55% expected bi-annual update.
