We certainly had a busy holiday season this year! Our management team has been working nonstop to get our newest store at 2121 South State Street open in time for Christmas. Unfortunately we were not quite able to open for the public, but we did manage to have our staff Christmas party at the new store and held a soft opening for friends and family. It took a little longer to open because we needed the Fire Marshall, the Security System Provider, and the ANSII system provider (that’s the Fire Suppression System) to all meet at the same time so everything could be coordinated and make sure everything was working together. This building is our first “rented” space (we own all our other buildings), so for the first time, we realized that if a fire were to occur, it doesn’t just affect us, but all the other tenants in the building. For me, it is another reminder that we are all connected somehow, even if you think you are separate.
At any rate, Moochie’s Number Four is in fact, up and running. We will be open temporary hours, 10:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Saturday for a couple of weeks until we can get enough staff hired and trained for this store. Moochie’s is a great place to work if you know anyone interested in a position with us! In the meantime, stop by and see the new space and try some of our new items that were featured on “Triple D Nation”, the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” follow up show. Guy Fieri stopped by to see what we were up to and was very impressed! We showed him our new “Porkiyaki” sandwich, a savory blend of sliced pork loin marinated in teriyaki sauce, grilled and served with a mild wasabi mayo and slaw. It is really delicious. And, we made him several versions of our new Cheesesteak Eggrolls, your favorite steaks rolled up in eggroll wrappers and fried to a delicious crunch and served with our famous Jumpin’ Jalapeno Sauce! They make a great appetizer to share or a hearty meal for one.
Thanks to all the folks who were patient with us while we got the store up and running, and to our amazing staff who make it all happen everyday. Happy 2019!!
