Located a half block from the Gulf and highway 90, in the middle of downtown Pass Christian. There is decent parking beside the building as well as street parking.
Last business in location: pizzeria for several years
My suggestion: Breakfast & Bakery
We need a breakfast place in this town! And this location is perfect!
My branding concept is inspired by the colors of the building itself (no need to repaint that lovely outside). French Toast Breakfast & Bakery. Open 7am to 2pm. Keep the menu limited. If you’re from the area think The Buttercup in Bay St. Louis. Make a killer french toast (perhaps offer three types of breads but keep the sauce the secret) and a good breakfast sandwich. The bakery can also keep it simple with maybe 2-3 selections of cookies, cupcakes, etc. and rotate those every two days. Have fun with social media by sharing the “the cake of the day” in the morning. If this truly was my place, my gluten-free, organic granola and Mama’s cornbread would be available to take home.
For uniforms, I love the idea of staff wearing crisp white shirts of their choosing and either retro aprons for the ladies and bow ties for the gents. Pants can be khaki or black. Retro tablecloths and curtains of cutter cloth would also be sweet.
That’s my idea for this space. What’s yours? Please share in the comments.
Do you have a location or business idea you’d like to consult with me on? I’d love to help!
