    Well, I have been thinking about it and both Jason and Shalmanese are correct. I AM going to be different. I figured out the potatoe thing, I figure I have to see this thing through and have fresh french fries. I figure two 5 gallon buckets of fries wont be a majore issue. Instead of me storing them. I'll have to keep a small stock of potatoes (a couple of days supply) and have my supplier hold the rest. No one in my area has "fresh cut fries" so that alone will make me different. As far as the platanos...GREAT IDEA!! Fresh cut fries, onion rings and platanos... Prep work should be about th

    Well I can do platanos, That is a staple in my home already, and NOBODY does platanos here. Great Idea Jason. I also make a great mustardbase garlic sauce to go with them. Thoes things are like crack.

    I feel that I am at a conundrum at this point. Instead of thinking only in the hear and now, I started thinking about the future. I know what I “want” to do...as far as the business is concerned...now the feasibility of what I want to do sets in. Burgers...no problem...They will be of great quality, fresh and never frozen. That is something I can do now and sustain in the future. Condiments: total quality, now and in the future. Buns....well I would like to make my own buns. I like the way they taste, I like the appearance, the weight...the whole nine...(no pun intended) . But...and there is

    Drink issues. I am trying to decide which is best...Styrofoam or "$tarbucks" like clear plastic cup. I know where to get each one from but here is the issue. Milkshakes and other softdrinks will keep colder longer in Styrofoam cups. They will be cheaper than the clear plastic cups. The marketing (logo) will stay consistant no matter what I put in it. Clear cups... A milkshake will look great in a clear cup, especialy when using whipped cream and cherries on top. Hand squeezed lemonade looks better. Soda Looks better. Plastic allows the hand to get cold when holding it, but it also has a be

    I am sorry to keep bothering everyone with this but I need to get it right I crunched the crown a bit and switched some colors. Brought back the "throw back" font.

    I amost forgot to inform all of the new break through...Number 9 will be serving Fresh FRIED APPLE PIE! I made some in the test kitchen this past weekend and I only have one word. FLAVORGASM It takes 5-7 min and will only be cooked when ordered I had to let them cool because the filling holds alot of heat. I am still trying to determine if it is worth making my own hamburger buns. I have tested some buns that I have made but it requieres work. I also have to think about the future when I get bigger...the Idea of having someone come in early just to make the buns $$$$$. I'll have to toast tha

    New image, old color What do you think I happen to like the new logo with the new color. It just seems that the new logo with the old color has too much red.

    Well, I have been working on another logo to use. I will have to decide which one. I had to copywrite the logo before I put it out there. Please tell me what you think I want the look to be classic. I want to convey the idea of that kind of "throwback" quality. No gimicks...just damn good burgers! I have to admit...finding a tag line that will stick is a very daunting task to say the least. The only thing I can think of that is kind of edgy is "Putt'in Hunger pains in a headlock" "A taste like no other" "classic urban flavor"

    Well, I have been thinking about the No.9 for some time now. I like it, It has some importance to me. But I was thinking about using my last name "McGirt" and calling it McGirt's Hamburgers. or paying homage to my home Bklyn NY. and calling it Brooklyn Burger Co. What do you all think. After all...there is bit-a- brooklyn in everyone...

    Hello all and Happy New Year. Well things are still rolling along. I am in the middle of perfecting making my own hamburger buns. I am experimenting with different types of buns ie MY regular, garlic, sundried tomato. potato etc. I am also experimenting with milkshakes. Getting the right consistancy. I am also developing a fried apple pie. The apple pie will be coated with butter, cinnamon and confection sugar.

    O.K Little reality check Good news first. I think I have a following that is getting bigger. I have had about a couple of dozen cusomers tell me this past weekend that I need to be out more. The went on to say that they have waited 3 weeks for my burgers. these people also brought more people with them. I am very happy. I also keep selling out which on one hand is great but on the other hand it is fustrating. While in my "test kitchen" I tried hand grinding some meats. ...O.K My thoghts the entire time is THIS IS A BUNCH OF BULL SHHH. Not only was it ALOT of work. The time it took me to g

    Thoughts. What do you think of when you hear the word "Burger Bar" The Original No.9....Burger Bar Also, Since I have the space already. I was thinking of doing the following: I have a "hot dog cart" that I converted into a Burger cart. I was thinking of starting with this cart and selling burgers from there. This will help me get my taste out to more people. The only dawback woudl be that it will be a very limited menu. Burgers, chips and soda. Or, should I wait until I have the food trailer.

    Give it a name. I have been thinking about the name. If I call it No.9 Hamburgers, this sort of locks me in to just serving burgers. I want to keep No.9 because it is special to me. Someday, this will move to a brick and mortar. I just dont think it will be wise to box myself in buy putting "hamburgers" in the name. It's not really a diner. dining car, and I dont plan to operate out of a trailer in the future. If I put in the name "restaurant" then am not limited. What are your thoughts. Any name suggestions?

    I am in the thinking process of opening. I think a website will be a good tool for the following. 1. When people see any new place opening, they may wonder..."hows the food" I was thinking about having a section in the website so people could share their eating experiences with the world (good or not so good). This way, I can keep doing what the cusomers like and change some of the things they dont. Almost like an e-bay approval rate. I wont be able to please everyone but at least everyone will see that I will be far from perfect, but always trying. Also, I can have a tasting. This will cos

    Game Day Burgers : SOLD OUT!!! What a great, exhausting, knock down, drag out day! 200 burgers, This time, the people who were in the back of the line last lat game came early and brought two and three at a time. They would buy some, stand to the side and eat them, then get back in line. People came early!! ...REAL EARLY. I cant wait until I start serving fresh ground burgers!!! Now on to the stuff that threw me off. People started asking for double and tripple burgers...thoes were not on the menu. I kindly told them that doubles and tripples were not on the menu...Then the kept insisti
