    Why did the McD's fold? If I were opening a new place in an old location that's prob the first thing I would want to know.. since McD's is in a similar type of market (granted not the same, but there is some overlap).

    That's the first thing I did ask about. It had to do with things that don't apply to me or the prospect of doing business there as a coffee house.

    Would you mind taking a moment and rating the following names on a 1 to 5 scale ? 1 being hate it, 5 being love it. Free coffee for all who participate. See below for details.*

    Keep in mind that the atmosphere of this place will be contemporary in look. The exterior will be an anodized aluminum/bronze color with a warm and comfortable interior.

    1) Joe Coffee (Company)
    2) The Bean Bar (Coffee Co.)
    3) Coffee Werks
    4) The Bean Scene (Coffee Co.)
    5) Javalish Coffee

    *If you stop by our place after we open in January 2004 and mention the TreoCentral poll, all who have participated by posting will get a free coffee drink on me. We'll be at 3111 Hancock St. in San Diego, CA, right off the 8 freeway at the corner of Rosecrans and Hancock.

    Thanks VERY MUCH. I really appreciate the input.

    Rick in San Diego
    I wonder how Rick's business is doing today? Anybody live nearby?

    And good luck too. Here in the cold twin-cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul drive-through coffees have been planted all over, but within the last 5 years many of them lost their shirts.

    I'm guessing if we show our Treos at the window, we get a discount?

    If its a small place, why not call it Java the Hut?

    Hey All,

    Thanks for the interest in how we're doing. We've been open for 8 months now as........ The Bean Bar Coffee House & Drive-Thru. We came in 2nd to Starbucks on our local newspaper's website, www.signonsandiego.com, so that was a nice accomplishment.

    It's been a lot of fun so far, but I've never worked so hard in my life! It's satisfying and exciting to see things grow. I hope we'll make it!

    Check us out at http://www.thebeanbar.com and see what we're all about.

    When you're in the Sports Arena area of San Diego, stop by and say hi! I haven't had anyone take me up on the free drink yet. You have to mention the Treo Central Poll to get it. Thanks!

    rickdeet - just don't tell that Chick-Dance-Noodles from NY, NY about it or she'll be hanging on your doorsteps all the time. She loves coffee and scones and BBQ chicken.... (Just teasing...)
    Good luck with your business, man!

    The Bean Bar is terrible

    Worst coffee I had ever had, and I'm not one to complain. I found a small worm floating around and what's worse is that my other friend had the same experience but with a moth.

    When I asked for a refund, I was told to "deal with it".

    I know Starbucks may be a tad more expensive, but there's a reason they are number 1, so stick with proven coffee.

    Maybe they should start a "Fear Factor Coffee House" Eat 10 worms and get a coffee free. Seriously, people should know about places like this, all it takes is one really sick customer.

    Yeah, I know...promise to post on other threads, but I just had a bad experience and wanted to vent so I googled the coffee place and came across this forum.

    I know, I know...I've heard that a lot. I can't seem to find one that fits.

    Besides, Insertion used my pic in his avatar, so people already know I'm not blonde.

    "Yeah, I know I'm hot?" or "Yeah, it's weird that I post only to slam an entrepreneur?"

    Sounds like your a jaded ex-girlfriend. I mean all the years I've drank coffee & all the years I've been around, I've never heard of a worm or a moth in a cup of coffee. How would it get there? There is a metal filter that if God forbid there was one, it would stop it before it went into the coffee.

    Seriously, did your boyfriend/coffee shop owner cut you off your makeup allowance?
