totally true. If I had a dollar for everytime I heard we need sidewalks and street lights I would be rich!

Yep...I'm not sure why some people move to the country and expect city amenities....

ScranBarre- I like to see more development of PA but the pay has got to be raised. Prices for everything is going up and surviving on a $8-9hr job is not going to cut it. Young people are going to college earning degrees but the pay doesn't cut it and they wind up leaving the state for the big cities.

I've heard tell that it's the sweepings from the slaughterhouse floor, glued together with some mysterious adhesive substance...bwahahahahahaha!

oooh scrapple looks yucky, but sure is plated pretty
The first time I brought cannolis to my son's school half the people were very excited and the other half had no idea what they even were! Once they all had a taste I had orders the next day. It doesnt matter if it's 'from here' or trucked in from there, it's how you make them...and the other yummy pasteries of course!
Good luck finding a good business to start out here!

I was going to pretty much copy places like Hot Dog Johnny's in NJ, all they do is fry skinless dogs in peanut oil. The trolley theme would have been great for buisness, think of the free advertisement you'd get if you brought an authentic trolley car in by helicopter! If you want more details feel free to contact me.

That would be AWESOME!!! Make sure you keep us posted if you end up going through with it!!!

Let me know what you think.

That is an ok location. But I've really thought that the Blakeslee area Of Rt 115 & 940 really needs a fast food place or two. It would be a really good time for a franchise in that area. This area is fast growing, but for a fast bite to eat, have to go all the way to the ends of 940 to do it (near the turnpike entrance or to the 4 points intersection near 611), or to Wilkes-Barre, The Stroudburgs or Brodheadsville. Sit in the WAWA parking lot and watch the cars roll by.
