Bahama Buck's is opening!

The day has finally come. It's scary, exciting, scary, and more scary. I'm scared because I didn't know how everything would pan out-like the employees making product, getting product out to customers, managing it, making money (I'm so sick of writing checks and swiping our credit card), but now that's we've had our VIP night and our grand opening day is about to end in 45 minutes, I'm feeling confident, hopeful, and excited, only a little scared now.
 A few weeks ago we had all our employees over for dinner and get to know you games. They all seem very nice and excited. Last week corporate trainers came to set up the store and train the employees. With each passing day, I could see how things were gonna work out and knew everything would be okay. Last night we had our VIP night. We gave employees to family and friends. We opened from 5-9 and served about 550 products for free. The mayor even showed up. The line was out the door and down the street. I know one woman waited 1 hour and 5 min. in line. There were a ton of people and everyone was nice considering the long wait. It was great practice for our "Avalanche Crew."
 I'm excited for the building to be done, I'm excited for the bank to pay off construction people and other people off, I'm excited to focus on just sales, customers, and employees without all that other stuff to worry about. Jeff has slept very little and has been extremely stressed OUT! He's worked so hard to achieve this, and I'm happy for him and for us.

 See I did help out a little bit.
I'll post more pictures of our outside patio and signs. We've had a lot of good and positive feedback. My personal goal is that this can be an establishment that the community can count on for good product and getting together in a fun, family, and friendly environment and a hangout place for teens.
