    The McNellie's down the street has struggled with staffing too...getting service on the patio this year has been a struggle.

    Don't see how them taking over really helps.

    That's a short-term issue. McNellie's group a professional team. They will reinvest in the space - something that hasn't been done previously - and as soon as they can get up to reasonable staffing levels you can bet that they will be open during any hours in which they could be turning a profit. Lack of ongoing re-investment and unreliable/non-aggressive operating hours were the main downfall of Bleu Garten.

    Does this mean they will run the food truck park, or do you expect them to develop the land into a restaurant?

    I believe they will run it in a similar manner as Bleu Garten.

    I'm sure they'll also make some changes and hopefully some upgrades.

    It would be smart for them to offer some kind of limited food/delivery menu from their restaurants for those times when the what's available via on hand food trucks isn't appetizing

    Or add their own kitchen.

    That's the setup at their soon-to-be big rival, Truck Yard.

    Yes, of course, if there's room for that

    The lease with the McNellie's group isn't quite finalized, but they are working on it.

    The plan is to add some permanent food items and make other small changes.

    With the cold weather coming, I suspect they won't reopen until spring.
