Ok so im doing this assignment for school. We have to run our own business, and i was wondering if something like this would make a profit. i know it sounds rediculous but read my first 2 paragraphs.

Remember this is an assignment!


I plan on running a business based on great sales through insulting. The restraunt will have great food, but even better it will have amazing insults such as “Welcome to Slider’s! The food is Amazing, and you suck!” or “welcome to slider’s! now leave”.

I know this sounds like a bad idea. But if you post signs about the harsh treatment and inform them at the door that they will be insulted severely when they enter, they might actually have fun. Imagine you go there, and you know what kind of atmosphere it is and just to play a prank on your friend you tell him about it, he goes there thinking its got amazing food and service and now he feels like he is in New York City.

they did it at kitty hawk north carolina and it gets lots of buisness

"Bob's Grill"
"Eat and Get the Hell Out"

I'll lay waiting, just waiting for my time to come

meh... it'd only have a chance of working in a major city where people will go to restaurants for the novelty, and for it to work there, you'd need to have ****loads of money to pay the lease... don't you have any better ideas?

It's been done. Some place in Chicago is famous for it apparently.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Theres a place in Chicago like that called Dicks Last Resort they basicly call you names, give you hats with outragous sayings on them, let you carve in the walls and have the most condom machines in a bathroom I have ever seen.

Just write "Restraunt" at the entrance and people won't even enter.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

they get great business because they're in touristy areas. living in a small town, yours would fail miserably. no banker in his right mind would give you a loan.

of course, your teacher probably won't grade on plausibility, so what the hell
#12
Welcome to Slider's! **** thread!! jk

Your teacher will probably tell you to change the theme. I like the idea, it's something different. People might go if they are aware that it's all in good fun and they are informed about it. I doubt someone having a bad day would go, so you might end up with jolly ppl coming in. The employees on the other hand can't be TOO harsh, they should respect clients patience or your business will loose it's customers real quick.

well the insulting would be done tastefully for the reason of children, and it would be done in small doses

i'd go to it, and i';m kinda picky for the places i eat in, always the same places, but i'd be willing to try the place out, if they have amazing pizza
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)

When you serve the soup, leave a note for the customer that says "Don't mind the spider, it's taking swimming lessons".

It's hit or miss. You'd have to have a grill, or bar, to go alongw with the ambience. It would have a great novelty value though.
#21
I think being outwardly rude and insulting is a bit to much. But if you made it more about spoofing places with bad service, that would work better.

I think having the wait staff wearing t-shirts that say "I'm with stupid", and saying things like "here's your food, jerk" would work quite well.

Edit: Call the place Kiss my Grits , that would be great.

I can already picture the news articles:

African-American sues racist restaurant

An man who was in for what he thought would be a pleasent evening at a restaurant was shocked when he entered the building. "They weren't happy with a black man in their place, and showed this by insulting me until I left."

I'm 15 and watch hannah montanna. and she can't act to save her ****ing life.
neway, i think it could be a good idea if u don't take it to far, just things like'you want fries with that, *generic polite insult here*'
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

theres one restaurant in Vancouver that has a reputation for hiring snotty jerkass servers. so the place plays that up, and people have fun with them.

Here are some ideas i have so far.


When Servin food say:

“you know, I just saw this huge cockroach in back”

“You want Ketchup? There’s some on the table behind you, get it yourself”

“I wish I didn’t sneeze in your food a second ago… would you happen to have a tissue?”

“That’s not chicken……”

“Do you still wonder what happened to Jimmy Hoffa (look at the food while saying that)?”

“You want toasted Buns? Go sit on a microwave”

“(While serving a bowl of chili say) remember that Wendy’s story about that finger?”

“if you find a hair, don’t complain…. Just pick it out… that’s all I’m gonna do”


When handing them their Check:

“I sure hope I never see you again”


“Wow….. you might need to do some dishes in back..”

“If you don’t tip me well, I’m gonna’ spit in your food the next time I see you”


“Sir, Your wallet is going to be a lot lighter”.

“Wow.. Christmas might not be that great this year kids”

“(if it is a small check) Cheapo”

“wow you embarrass me”

“HOHO! Big spender over here!”
