Preferred trade area demographics and business characteristics generally consist of:
We are a morning, lunchtime and weekend eatery. The optimal location is highly visible and easily accessible to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The larger the storefront and larger the signage, the better. We prefer to be located on the inbound morning commuter side. Convenient customer parking is key in suburban areas.
We prefer to locate in busy areas with a healthy concentration of community-focused, "daily use" shopping such as post offices, dry cleaners, drug stores and banks. Preferred co-tenants include high-end grocery stores (e.g. Wholefoods), upscale coffee shops (e.g. Starbucks, Caribou), popular apparel, home furnishings and bookstores. It is also beneficial to have a high concentration of white collar offices, hospitals and universities nearby.
