When we hear the words “open for business on 4th of July”, what comes to our minds? Does it bring to mind visions of burgers and fries being pushed out of the window as workers cart in boxes of hamburgers and hotdogs? Or does it bring to mind a fun filled day at the local hamburger place or the local diner making way for the happy hour crowd as they enjoy their burgers and shakes? Probably not, but we all understand that having food available twenty-four hours a day is sometimes difficult to keep.
Convenience stores such as Walmart and Target are one of the biggest supporters of restaurants being able to open on this day. In fact, some cities even have laws requiring this. Walmart opens its stores on this day to make sure they are fully staffed and making the best customer experience possible.
What about restaurants? Do they open? If they do, how many are there? Well, most restaurants do open up on this day. However, there are some who do not plan to be open, for whatever reason.
The fact that many do not open is unfortunate. Who wants to go to a restaurant on a hot summer day when you know you will be eating grilled chicken and cold drinks? The food at these stores is usually great. You can get a salad, baked potato, French fries, pizza, and much more. It just depends on what the person chooses to eat.
Another question is, will people really come and shop at your place of business. Well, the answer to this question is yes. Many times people will choose to go to your place of business rather than their favorite fast food restaurant. This is due to many reasons. Some may have been exposed to your brand of food, while others may not have.
There is no right or wrong time to open your business for business. You may choose to do it when the economy is good. Or you may choose to do it when the economy is bad. It is up to you to decide what the best time is for your type of food business. I hope you have enjoyed the article and find it to be informative.
Happy Independence Day! I am very happy that we can celebrate this day in a way that doesn’t cause us stress. As consumers, we are constantly trying to avoid spending our hard-earned money at fast food restaurants. Most of us don’t like being asked to spend that much money when we aren’t even hungry! So, this makes Independence Day perfect for choosing food for kids on this day as well as adults.
If you are considering having a food business for the 4th of July, I would highly recommend it. Please consider all this. Open on July 4th is one of the most popular times of the year to begin with. People love eating and drinking during the day and will enjoy visiting your store for an afternoon of Americana. You will probably be able to sell out very easily, so plan ahead to be sure you have plenty of food for sale on this day.
