Ok, I really want to talk about it so I am going to spill the beans. Or, at least, a few of them… I posted something about my trip to Family Grounds, a coffee shop with play area for young kids in Chicago, awhile back. That stirred up some conversation from two friends in particular…both told me they had the same idea and I thought that was cool and didn’t think about it again, until I saw what I thought, was the perfect location. I immediately, at the next red light, texted my friend and from that moment on been seriously considering opening something like that in Evanston. How cool would that be, right? I have met with a commercial realtor and talked with a coffee guy. We are currently trying to put a business plan together to see if this is feasible in Evanston.
I just think this is the kind of place that you can be a stay at home mom and working mom at the same time. I might be super naïve but it would be soooo cool. Jimmy would get to know so many locals and they him. I think the community aspect of it would be beneficial to everyone in the area.
Location seems to be the toughest part of the puzzle. Where is there parking, foot traffic, square feet, and visibility for one low price? If you have any ideas please let me know!
Today it seems possible. Tomorrow it very well might not. That’s my big secret. Cross your fingers!
