I've been alerted in the comments to another Naples News article about Gyrene Burger
. The article has new details about the venture:
The new fast-food concept will offer two types of burgers, with no substitutions: The classic with ketchup, mustard and pickle and the deluxe with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Each will cost about $6. Both burgers will have double Angus beef patties, plus cheese and bacon.
One of their latest ideas is to put the delivery drivers on scooters to ensure they don't speed. The scooters will be rugged-looking to match Gyrene Burger's military theme. Deliveries will only be made 1.5 miles from the store and drivers will carry only one order at a time.
I like this line:
Monaghan's protege, Adrian Martinez, who will be the manager of the first store, said the concept is constantly evolving. "No good idea is dismissed," he said.
Finally, a small revealing glimpse into what makes Tom Monaghan tick:
As word has spread about his new venture, Monaghan said some have questioned him about whether it will work, especially with only two choices on the menu. "We'll make it work," he said, adding that an accountant once told him he couldn't make any money in the pizza delivery business.
Good luck with the business! Our Florida readers will have to give us a full review when the store opens on December 12.
