Well, the one I was wanting we could not agree on a price.
I think apathy is his biggest problem. The owner is an older guy who retired from Boeing. He has a pension and does not rely on the pizza business for paying his bills. He treats it as some place to go to get out of the house.
As they say, when one door closes another opens. I was having lunch at our favorite BBQ place when a really good offer was made. The owner of the BBQ place is an old friend. His place is an old meat packing place and the kitchen is huge. He does a very robust catering business. Anyway, he offered me a space in his kitchen to setup a delivery operation. Natural gas, 3-phase power and 2,000 sq ft of walk in refer make it tempting. It is also a prime location for delivery.
Now just need to put together a business plan.
