Original Joes coming to Brandon

Via the paste below from the Shoppers Mall, construction is to start this fall (i.e. asap) on an Original Joe's. I assume on the pad site to the South of Swiss Chalet?  
 

 
 
Their menu can be found on their site at:

Location

As suspected it’s being built on the site originally thought to be for Fionn MacCools. With part of the construction process underway I imagine that’ll make it easier to have a building put up sooner than you’d normally see

Great News

This is exactly the type of restaurants we need more of in Brandon! Would love to see Mr Mike's, and State & Main as well. Brandon people love to eat out. It's a shame it's going to be so small, but better than not having one at all.

...

from my understanding.. this building will be up in no time as far as everything falls through properly. Most likely want to beat the snow.

Because Amazon doesn’t sell meals.

problem is...

The problem is the city has nothing for people to do. Eating out is becoming the "entertainment" portion of the personal budget, which means more restaurants. Soon the city will be nothing but a Walmart, dollar stores and restaurants.

Victoria inn

Wasn’t there an original Joes in the Victoria inn or Royal oak at one time years ago? Or am I thinking of something else....

Definitely been a lot of change in the eating space in the last year, but as long as people eat there will be restaurants  
Would be a great idea for a new separate thread, to discuss businesses you'd like to see in the city within the context of market size and the current retail world.

Yes, you are right about that, going out for drinks and apps seems to be the thing to do. I still wonder how all these restaurants are going to be able to do a decent business with so much competition for our $$.

Don't forget Joe Beeverz. And maybe some day if we play our cards right and quadruple in size a Joey

the only stores dying off are department stores and malls.

exciting but another restaurant ?!?

It’s always good to see my city grow however I don’t think we need more food places. Also I’m not sure how Brandon is going to handle the no kids policy they have... might be a few upset families not knowing and wanting to try it out. I’m okay with this as some times it’s nice to not go out and see children around. Don’t get me wrong, kids can be great.. but some times it’s nice to have a good dining experience without them.

Not every location

Have eaten at the one on at Unicity in Winnipeg and had my kids with me with no issues. Looking on their website it mentions some don’t allow minors. Be interested to see what the one here does.

no kids

If it’s as small as it seems it might be okay to not let kids in.... they won’t need to work hard to fill the place. And might be a draw to have no kids.

I wish

The investors of this franchise the best of luck!  
Lots of complaints, as always from people who could and would never venture out to purchase a franchise!
