Dogs & Suds Café on Main Street
I think nothing is absolute says Dennis.
Great things, looks like a restaurant that hasn’t opened yet. It may be opening day of the Dogs & Suds Café on Main Street in Racine, WI. They have a great American variety of foods. They sell soup, coffee, cookies, smoothies, juices, hot dogs, goodies, cookies, and beer . . . all types of goodies on the menu!
The Dad’s name is Dennis and he is playing music to attract customers. He is playing any type of music but not too much with the violin. His son’s name is Steve and he’s 6-7 years old. Steve is pretending to play the violin just like his Dad! He mimics using his imagination. One is dressed for winter; one is dressed for fall or spring. It’s fall because Steve is dressed in a winter coat.
The leaves are changing colors: red, yellow, green brown. Dennis has something to do with the ownership of the café. Others are inside getting ready with materialistic things to open the café. Patrons and employees are working together, you have to have good people to train to work there.
They’re just getting started and will make 2 million dollars in their first year. First year?!?! NO WAY. Give me a break! It might work.
The VIP’s are the ones getting the first tour of the café. The people want something different. What’s so different and special about Dogs & Suds? 1) They have different attire, 2) they offer a variety of foods, 3) the restaurant is nice and clean inside.
Dennis and Steve have family, too. The mom’s name is Mary, the brother is Mike and the daughter is Laura. Mary is at home and she cooks meals for the men. She doesn’t like it though and would rather go shopping. But she might become the manager of the café.
The café currently opens at 11:30-noon every day and closes at 6 p.m. But they are rethinking their strategy and have big plans. So they might open 7:30-8 a.m. and close at midnight. The building was built in 1955 and they will entertain 4-5 days a week.
Their first day they brought in $1,000 to $100,000. The patrons will be back!! But if they have to rely on music the food must not be too good. . !? “We will be back!” Keep the good stuff rolling!
