It would be nice to be able to believe that we could have a successful restaurant, one that a large portion of residents would like to support – and not to mention, to take advantage of & enjoy that great floor space! We have lived in SCA since 2000, and have been through unsuccessful restaurant attempts so many times before. Unfortunately, not to mention all the subsides, we wonder if this one looks any better. It seems that there is a prolonged tendency to want something that most residents can’t relate to.
Hope I’m wrong, but I’m wondering if this one is something like one of the previous attempts several yrs ago to bring in a restaurant. Residents were invited that time to attend presentations from several restaurant groups, which talked about what they would offer. Afterwards, my wife spent at least 15 minutes with one group & discussed whether they really thought SCA residents would support a restaurant like what they proposed?” She said they responded, saying “no, we will have to advertise heavily and bring in customers.” Nothing against non-residents, and maybe many other folks here don’t agree with our question, but we wondered SCA residents should share, and subsidize, our great space with a majority of outsiders? Anyway, that group did turn out to be the one that SCA approved. There’s been so many attempts that I can’t remember how long it was before that restaurant group also was out-of-here too.
