Having stopped by DQ a few weeks ago and making it over to Steak and Shake and reading about Sonic on here I have thought of a few spots maybe with more room. Costco, (Zaxby and Bennigans close by), Sonic @ Moores Mill/Winchester (Kroger parking lot beside it), maybe a school (Have some school group sponser a concession stand), Monte Sano Park, just to name a few.

The big thing is to make sure you have concent from every company that is nearby cause like at the cruise-in at Hardee's it disrupted the Subway business next door and that lady was pissed-off.

Well do we want it to be near a busy street to draw a bigger crowd or off the busy streets? That is probably the biggest question causr that will dictate where it can be done.

The big parkinglot right down from Popeye's on Jordan Lane and University might be a good place I think it is Trees and Trends.

I like the idea about Costco. Even the Sam's club on University has potential.

The main thing is finding some benefit for the businesses at these locations to give up over a hundred parking spots. I could see Sams benefitting just from the amount of gas that would be purchased.

You got to be a member to buy their gas.

True, but I bet they'll sell a membership or two, and those that are members will probably fill up.

The only thing about that is that its been told to me that they don't make any money off the gas sales. The gas is just a "lure" of sorts to get people in...you know its the "I need gas...oh wait I need to go get (insert item here), I think I will go in as long as I'm here" type of thing. Why do you think Sam's and Costco have the cheapest gas in town...

How much parking does he have? Can he support 150+ cars? Are there restaurants and stuff within walking distance?

That is true. But I was just generalizing that they'll get some more business.
