Not sure where I posted it but I'm sure I did...

A food truck up in Midland had been a regular downtown for a few years and then they decided to go to a full bricks and mortar 'sit down' business plan and they chose downtown Midland to sit up in. 

I'm afraid the Monroe 'mindset' is just unbreakable :( :( :(

The difference is that it was going to be located on a bricks and mortar property that pays a substantial amount of property taxes too. They weren't proposing being on the sidewalk or in the road right of way.

No other place to put this

Whiskey Jack's barbecue trailer wanted to park out in front of Budshydro on Telegraph on Thursdays and Fridays and the Monroe Charter Township board voted NO !!
They said 2 days a week for 4 hours at a time was too permanent to be considered without a site plan and a rezoning.

Why didn't they just say" We don't want you in our community " " because its such a fantastic community now that a food trailer would be a disgrace "






Doesn't look like they'd be much competition for any of the 'locals'.

BBQ is something that I seldom get in a bricks and mortar restaurant unless it's their specialty. 

Just not something you can do justice to unless you have the equipment and the time AND the skill.

That's a plus.

Hopefully they will rebuild, but if I had to bet, I'd go with adding Nortel Lanes to the list this morning.

Like I posted on the other thread, is a bowling alley a viable business today?

Dick Sieb's comments to the paper, and the post Nortel Lanes made on Facebook sure doesn't sound like they plan to be back.

I'm guessing the Seniors Doubles Tournament is cancelled?

I was with him today -  he said it would take a year at least - and they are reviewing the cost to rebuild before they make the decision -  its a corporation he's not the sole proprietor.   

It was funny that someone called him to see when they could get in to get their ball out of their locker  :)

Paint some 'lanes' on Telegraph road and let them 'bowl' on there.  Problem is, the pot holes will alter the path of the ball....

I find bowling to be on par with golf.  2 lame past times. ;D

You'd be surprised... its one of the few things left that allowed groups of people to be entertained and socialize...

Nortel was always busy when I was there, not that it was that often.   And busy doesn't translate to profitable.

Not at all.  I used to bowl, way back when.  Church, bowling and the YMCA.  My personal experience with bowling always involved booze however and in as much as I'm a non-drinking alcoholic, the booze part don't trip my trigger any more.
