Well, first we need a theme, something that will draw people in. And I think we need to set up three or for sections, each isolated, maybe even in a Sandwich Mall kind of thing.

Here's some ideas for themes. Of course I expect anyone, especially you Elf, to come up with alternates so we can choose the best ones. We might even want to put them up for community voting.

Theme 1: Classic Grinder and 50' style fast food, but with a twist. One section is specifically set up as the "challenge" area, where ingredients are available for customers to "design" or build their own sandwiches. Different breads, and a multitude of things to go between should be available, each with a price. This would be geared primarily to Teens, & young adult to middle age.

This shop should also serve a limited menu of soups, fruit smoothies, malts and shakes, soda, and maybe ice-cream cones and sherberts. It should also offer a limited selection of salads.

Shop will require a deep fryer with at least 3 bays, a flame-grill, a flat grill, refrigerated trays and display cases for condiments and grinder fillings.

Fillings would include iceburgh and leafy varieties of lettuce, deli-meats such as ham, tukey, chicken, salami, pepperoni, capiacola, beef, pork, corned beef, meat-balls, and even fish fillet's.

Various sausages such as bologna, braunschweiger, ground-beef, spicy ground-beef, prosciuto, should be included. Include black and green chopped-olives, hot and bell peppers, bean sprouts, avacado, tomato, onion, sweet and dill pickle slices, various herbs, dried red-pepper flakes, and tomato sauce. We should have sour krout here as well.

American, Muenster, Jack, Colby, Cheddar, Swiss, Provolone, Mozzarella, gruyere, and cheese spreads should be on hand as well. We should also include ready made sandwich spreads like chicken salad, or ground bologna mixed with salad dressing and sweet pickle-relish.

Now, somebody add something or comment. What about condiments, for instance. What kinds of breads do we offer? Do we serve chili? Most importantly, how do we make this a happening place? What's the name? What kind of music is offered? What's the decor? What about hot-sandwiches, or hot-dip sandwiches? And do we heat them in an oven or a micro-wave?

Let's go. We've got a lot of work to do. Where are we gonna put this thing together?

Possible names; BFIT (Best Food In Town)
Grand Sammy
Fill 'er Up
Obviously, we need more possible names.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

sprouts, too.

soft multi-grain bread, provolone, avacado, tomato, iceberg or romaine lettuce, sprouts, mayonnaise, and black pepper. best as is, cold, but isn't so bad nuked or grilled.
