    Which means modding will have to slow down alot and house upgrading will have to be put on hold.

    all for expansion if built on a good foundation. good food is not enough. IDK enough but from your posts here, my initial thought would be that you are not ready to handle another one. systems not in place to run themselves....

    I have made alot of development in the last 6 weeks. Hiring and firings for the good. I have a core team and its always the little guys that come and go. I run a very good food cost, labor cost, and have got good deals with most of my vendors. I am starting to cut back to 3 shifts a week and work with my staff to make them better and better every day so that when i am not there it rans as if i am. I am very confident in myself and skills in the restaurant. I have pulled off alot by myself and with little staff. Building more staff to take on more is a challenge of course but I am ready for it.

    It is time to turn this into something bigger.

    And that is all great, but you know that can change as quickly for the worse as it did for the better. Again, I don't know all the details and you know yourself better than anyone. Please don't take this as my doubting your abilities but....as you point out it has only been 6 weeks. How about waiting til 6 months, building a good cash reserve and evaluating at that point? Slow and steady wins the race in this arena.

    I hear ya. We will be opening a second store no matter what I will be in charge of both stores. Weather I own a percentage or not the one owner is not waiting any longer. We have been open for 2 1/2 years. Don't get me wrong it is a bit scary but if we can make it now in this economy then it can only get better when it turns.

    I as well have pushed him back from opening for quite some time but this is the best I have felt in a long time about this place and it just keeps better. New menu items, better staffing, improving sales, more marketing. If it flops I am young and can start over. If we dont take a shot now we will never know.

    Bought two damn 30 inch dell monitors and the guy harassed me for payment when I was out this weekend and when I paid on Monday he hasn't responded for days after multiple e-mails now. I $#@!ing hate these kinds of people.
