Just yesterday while checking out the web site for Pane Bianco (that neat sandwich shop next to Lux) I noticed that Pane Bianco is taking a “summer break” beginning August 24th and ending on September 15th. My first thought is it’s an interesting idea. Just schedule a break every year. Everybody needs a break from their work to relax. It could also be a business move: Take 1 week to rethink business goals, plan any menu changes, and pump up morale by having team meetings away from the ordinary. Well, that’s enough philosophizing for today. Then last night I received an email from Charlie at Elixer Coffee Solutions (they have a cool web site at www.elixercoffee.com) saying “the Manager of the Fry’s store that elixer is set-up at gave us a 24 hour notice.” This means that Charlie and Renee will be looking for a new home. If you have any suggestions just let them know (right now they are based in Oro Valley, AZ). They’ve decided at the same time they are looking to take a short break, travel a bit, and reevaluate business goals. We wish them a great summer and hope they find a new home soon.
