    Wasn’t Blaine, MN a fictional town made up for the movie “Waiting for Guffman”?

  2. Wow, Mr Walker doesn’t mess around!

    Mark Walker is a big talker! He has been evicted from his Chaska location and Chanhassen location due to non-payment of rent!

  4. Bill

    The location at Raintree and the 101 also closed down. Word has it from non payment of rent on the location as well. Havent seen any of the other locations here in town even open yet.

  5. Interesting stuff. It’s too bad. I think the focus was on money, and not quality. I’ve had better coffee.

  6. Ed Thomas

    Mark Walker is a dishonest person with no integrity. He has judgments against him in California and Arizona; the Mall of America is after him; and he personally owes me over $14,ooo. He is a smooth talker and will lure you in. Be careful of anything you do with this man. He is not the real deal.

    I wish I had seen this site before I dealt with Mark Walker. Now my lawyer is attempting to get hold of him. Anyway I agree that Marks intentions are not nobel so be very careful before dealing with this person. Feel free to email me if I can help you in any way.

    An update for my comments from Dec 21, my issues with Mark has been resolved. Mark did contacted me himself and was kind enough to bring papers to my work. Apparantely few unplanned issues delayed this transaction on Mark’s part but I have to say he did come through as promissed.
