« $76 Skool Bond is On | Main | High Cost Rail - Part 56 Empty Idiocy! »

July 29, 2011



From the San Mateo Daily Journal:

"The city also furnished a list of new businesses for the site that are planning a fall 2010 opening: Blu-White Cleaners, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, It’s A Grind Coffee Shop, Pizza My Heart, Union Bank, Which ‘Wich Sandwiches and Yogurtland."

You guys know I was joking when I said this development needs another yogurt stand? Seriously??? What is that? Five or six on and around Burlingame Ave?



I know you weren't joking- I see them all over the place, I just cannot figure out how Burlingame rents are paid with a $3-$4 yogurt--I guess we have a lot of yogurt addicts around. It's good, but not THAT good-- a fad (?). I'm not a math whiz, but I figure each shop probably gets about 50 customers a day, on average-- at $4 that makes $200, or? Please, somebody help me with this one--something doesn't add up. Baskin-Robbins has been here for decades, maybe they own the building, so can stay in-the-black on like-priced sweets.

Another mystery is how the Burger Joint stays in business. It usually seems completely empty. The loss of Towles (both versions) was a pity; that place was always packed--it will be interesting what happens when Five Guys moves down the block.
