The Cereal Box wrote:MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! As the owner of The Cereal Box, I have kept my true intentions of this wonderful business under wraps throughout the entire process. Because of another venture I have in the fitness world, my original goal was to raffle off the business at a low cost and give someone an opportunity to own a business who otherwise might not have a chance to. Unfortunately, the gaming laws in Kentucky do not allow me to do that.
So now I am going make it available for purchase to someone who wants to grow the concept. I don't have to sell, So I will be thorough in the selection process. I own the building so I would offer an attractive lease, as well as stay on in a certain capacity to make sure everything transitions smooth. I eventually will come back on as a franchise owner.
I am extremely proud of this business and the reaction to it has been enormous. Google has named it the most googled, local spot in the city. The crowds and responses to the creations in store have been nothing short of extraordinary and I can't thank everyone enough.
Anyone interested in owning The Cereal Box, please message. Thanks again!

I hope he can sell it. But a three week old funky restaurant concept has almost zero value. Maybe I'm reading between the lines but old phrase "we are doing well and I do not have to sell" usually means "$&ck, I need to sell today. What can you pay me for it?"

Yeah, kind of rings loudly of the Trump marketing concept. Bigly.

How magnanimous to be given the opportunity to own an unproven concept. I'll take two, please.

For today, anyway. :twisted:

UPDATE!!! So the major announcement has created an enormous amount of buzz that I was not expecting. The announcement was meant to be an alternative option to the raffle I wanted to do. The main reason I decided to go this route was to ultimately grow the business faster by bringing in and giving someone else an opportunity to own a business instead of waiting a year or more then allowing someone to come on as a franchisee. By doing it this way, it would allow me to open another location or two using the funds created off a raffle or sale. I strive to help as many people as I can. It's my main goal in life. I know it's unconventional but I've never been known as a conventional guy. As a result, it has created a lot of confusion and some negative attention. That was not my intention. As a result, I have decided this avenue is not the best route to go and I will continue to own and operate The Cereal Box. I will accept any offers and proposals for potential franchisees or investors as I have received much interest from people. I apologize for the quick change but I do want anyone to think The Cereal Box was going anywhere. It's here to stay and grow in Louisville. Thank you for all of your support!
