Yeah I've already picked out a good spot for the stripper pole too ;)




Was tryin not to go there!
 
My wife has a store, at 1st location, there was a support pole right in the middle of the showroom floor.
Painted silver.
Kind of the ongoing joke.
Used to tell people, if they wanted 10 % off they had to give us a show.

So I've been to the mall twice this week, two more times than the last 20 years combined. Long story short, two daughters, two date nights/shopping trips...
Anyways, tonight's trip involved eating in the food court. Walking through for a first look over, she sees food and I'm looking at the space, equipment, setup, etc... She chose and as we waited I'm looking things over very closely. The fellow at the flat top seemed to be in charge so I asked if this was his place, etc... turns out they pay $10k a month for a space smaller than my truck. I know malls still draw a lot of people but they're dying very very fast, nearly every third front is boarded in this fairly exclusive part of town. Some quick math tells me about how many meals these places each have to serve just to stay open and it's no wonder they change as often as the calendar. I think I may have found a place to recruit used equipment ;)

10 k /mo barely gets you a kiosk in a mall around here.
That guy also has cost of goods, related supplies, utilities, staffing, possibly franchise fees.
Wouldn't be surprised if gross overhead is 20 k / month.

That's about where my mental math took it... That's a lot of sandwiches to serve... If I could push those numbers through a truck I'll retire and give the whole thing to a beginner just for kicks after 18-24 months.
Back a few years ago 10k was chump change but malls are seriously struggling. They'll all be abandoned in 5-10 years.

Around here it seems many truck owners think of the truck as a stepping stone to a bricks n mortar place
No thanks

Up here they are reviving the malls
Filling the parking lots with stand alone stores and resturants
As the big anchor stores close down they revamp the space for smaller clients
Access from the outside instead of inside
Life is change

They've been trying that for about 10-15 years here and are losing the battle. It's fine with me, I'd love to see them go. I would have loved to see them go before they ran all the mom and pops shops out of business in the 80s and 90s.

And yet mom n pop shops continue to exist
They are just different kinds
Electricians
Drywallers
Food trucks
Bakery
Compiter consultant
Yoga studio
Print shop
On and on
Yes it all changes
Now it is much more diverse
And thanks to the web, competion isn't even local
