I posted here a while ago about wanting to open up my brewpub etc etc.
Well... took a big step towards actually doing it... in a really strange way. I'm about to open up a couple of (secret food style until we open) franchises in the Dade County area...it's been about a year in the making. This was going on even as I was posting about my desire to chuck all the TV stuff (been in television for over 20 years...no glamour...behind the scenes) and open my own brewpub.
Well, the brewpub thing is a 7 figure proposition in Florida... so many hoops and special interests to jump though and for... so I am trying this other idea... and that's to sell my brew alongside the Corona and the Budwieser that's going to be sold in the stores... it's much cheaper to open up two or three (undisclosed franchises) believe it or not...than to open one brewpub (when you add up the fees, licensing and equipment expenses plus real estate...geez, the real estate!
SO.... it's not the brewpub, but it's something...
