* Dead On Arrival— Butcher & The Burger
* Dead On Arrival–Butcher & the Burger
Back on April 19, 2013 Jeff Eats “ran” a story on a new fast food joint—Butcher & The Burger which had just opened in Boca Raton’s Town Center’s food-court…suffice it to say—the rather blunt call was- that the concept would fail. To you-guys’ credit, tons of comments came in, with most of you agreeing–that the owner had created/designed a disaster. Before I chat further about Butcher & The Burger you guys do know, that Jeff Eats would match its readers’ “smarts” and “taste” against any food-blog/review site currently out there. No bs here—some of you guys are absolutely brilliant in the way you see business/food etc…
Last week, Butcher & The Burger closed.
Since Jeff Eats has no “skin” in the game…I could care-less if a restaurant makes it or doesn’t make it. On a personal level, I only wish new restaurant ventures the best of luck… That said, I do know as a general rule- two things about restaurants…You want to eat in them not own them–but that’s just me.
The point of this “story”—in the case of Butcher & the Burger, a guy from Chicago with a very-very successful restaurant–opened a fast food outlet in Boca Raton without doing his “homework” and as a result lost a ton of cash…when, all he had to do before spending even one thin dime—was ask you local guys-what you thought.
