While Manager is talking with attorneys, real estate agents, and CPAs, I get to have fun.
Here are some of the fun things I've come up with:
Capt. Tiny Brain posted his version of the bakery patrons to match the coffee consumers posted earlier this week in comments. I liked some of it, and modified the rest to the following:
Loafers - those who buy our breads because we make them convenient - they are most like coffee's Lazy Lattes.
Whole Grainers - those who buy quality health loaves, multigrains, organics - although they share some characteristics with the Java Snobs, they are really in a category by themselves.
Sticky Buns - These are most like the Java Beaners - looking for a light social atmosphere, easy entertainment, decent foods and beverages, a place to see and be seen, and get tasty treats while there.
Cookie Monsters - Capt. Tiny Brain listed them as carboholics, which could be so, however I think this also covers soccer moms stopping to get after school or after game treats for the kids.
Croissants - This comes closest to the Java Snobs - the people who seek out the newest and hippest treats, the fanciest goodies for their exclusive noshes. Likely we'll be referring many of these to specialty bakeries that do elaborate cake and cookie decorating.
We don't want people to think of us as a "special occassion" retreat, but a daily break place.
