Just me, but I don't think those eclairs look so bad. With Choux , it isn't really about finding the right formula that will produce a perfect, clean, size and look. It's usually is in the method and procedure. I really think you will find success if you experiment with procedural trial and error before formulas. I have made eclairs state side, oversees, etc. Some of the formulas were totally against my taste preference. But I always managed to tweak the procedure to...
For me personally, it would be legal advice first. Do you're due diligence. Gather any and all information, questions, etc. Buy an hour of time with someone who has legal experience in the exact same scenario. Forward a brief description of your situation in writing ahead of time. When you arrive make it perfectly clear that you do not expect chit-chat, introductions, etc. Your goal is to come away from that hour with a positive direction / next step towards a resolution...
blizzardbakes Just a thought. It sometimes can  get windy on the beach. We have displayed wedding cupcakes in boxes before. We take some cabinet wax and fold it over a glass similar to the cupcake diameter. We leave it higher on two sides. Then drop a few fresh blackberries down the creases. When you open the box you will have a small placemat to eat on. If possible we will ask the bride if she or hubby would like to put personal inscription.on it. funny, I usually...
Danny T. Time to get back to the OP's question. Small restaurant looking for economical POS system.   Please don't assume your communicating with partially or unsuccessful business owners. You're hearing @foodpump , but you not listening. I don't think he even used the word Square. There's just no need to tell me to use my head. 2.75% on merchant processing is outrageous for me. I've been playing the processing game for 35-40+ yrs. As far as calling @foodpump an old...
Calphalon Knives Recalled For Breakage Over 2 million Calphalon knives sold individually and in sets made between August 2008 and March 2016 have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada for a potential laceration hazard caused by breakage that can occur during use. See the full Calphalon knife recall list from the Consumer Product Safety Commission and for next steps...
South American Fusion may take more energies to quasi match to local tastes. Something special like that I would think should command 900. a day on the low end and go up from there.
@blizzardbakes ,  Off topic. Do you know what the ambient temperature will be when you display your cupcakes? Just making sure they are not planned for outside, hot and sunny. Personally, I prefer to impart more flavor with the fresh product itself when possible. Flavoring the buttercream is fine, but I feel the problem is getting the flavor to break through the sweetness. This is why for me personally,when I'm required to flavor a buttercream, I prefer a Swiss over...
Sounding like a Square salesperson. Square is an option ( a processing company) but certainly has nothing to do with cutting edge or boning up. It's geared to mobile processing. The OP mentioned having POS capabilities. Square has none. Square also charges an extra fee for manual transactions. This is very common when there might be a bad cell. Square doesn't appear to have any risk policies in place or use them regularly, and when you do hit an algorithm, they may hold...
There are upsides and downsides to all merchant processing. There are three points of negotiation on cost for regular processors. Not knowing these will result in high percentages. With Amex trying to get market share in the public sector with OPEN, the rates have dropped. They are still notorious for siding with the customer and will reverse fees immediately. They don't seem to have or use an algorithm to detect customers who practice this for profit as other card...
I've worked a bit in a few places. actually have been a owner most of my adult life. Years ago it took most of my energies to further my business education while working.I got so deep into the forest I couldn't see the trees. The result, waste of time, even masters. Most all reference materials and syllabus were so dated and not relevant to my thinking.   Early on, the common concept was to work your business, be anal about recording events and build the business  for...
