    24 hour opening rule

    Hi everyone...

    I'd like to open my Sandwich shop 24/7 364 days a year, only closing on Songkran. Currently our opening hours are 08.00-21.00 364 days a year.
    Now.. What are the legal issues to this? I know we can't serve alcohol after 2AM. But does it require a special license to be open 24 hours?

    Reason I'm asking is because everyone I've asked, lawyers, collegues etc.. tells me "Dai"... "Dai"...! But it's my experience that these people just say whatever they've decided to believe in, often treating reality like it's completely non-existing.. So before I start a major marketing campaign and install new signs, as well as hire additional staff, I thought I'd just hear if someone in here had some golden advice? :-)

    Kindest regards,

    Daniel

    Your question I have no idea, but had good intentions of visiting your shop last trip but just ran out of time to do it.

    So how is business, I think I read previous that you were looking at franchise or expansion

    How about robbery? Did you factor that? 24hrs operation no joke. Do you trust your staff?

    Maybe speak to someone from the 7/11 chain to see how they do it?

    Where exactly is the shop?
    Thought about it a few days ago when I was tootling around down the bottom of the island.

    Thanks for asking, we're doing very well actually. And as well with the consulting. I know this might be odd, asking a question like this, while operating a consultancy company in the industry.. But I just thought there might be someone out there with some knowledge on this.

    The Franchising is on hold until we reach high season. No real reason to bother with the idle months as we've build a very strong structure that is easy for us to scale and won't need too much time to run smooth. We're doing central kitchen and the likes..

    The RPM Franchise, which you may have heard about as we marketed it big, is probably not happening though as we've had quite a few jumpers on it.. However I am working on another big project for them..

    Hope you will drop by and try us out when you get the chance.. New menu in the making for June :-)

    There was one asking were it was at, please check our facebook page as it has all the info you need.. I'm probably not allowed to link it due to restrictions here on the forum, so I'll rather not.. But the name in the search bar, if you're somewhere on the island, should pop up easily..

    Thanks again and good night,

    Thanks, not a bad idea, I guess I could try to infiltrate someone who owns a 7/11 franchise..

    Actually, I've come as far as decided we're going for it.. Hell.. We'll see what happens!

    The coup has turned out in our favour, when looking at sales for the past two days.. The shop was packed around 8-9pm.. Guess people are filling their fridges!

    The long term effects might not be so interesting.. Got a few cancelled bookings for our guesthouse :-/

    Yes. Definitely...! :-)

    Havent even been home for about 2,5 years soon. I'll definitely never move back home and "live".. I might not stay in Thailand, but living in a country like this, with all the liberty that follows, is awesome!

    Thanks for asking :-)

    To be honest No....

    If you meant he appears to be doing all right without the advice.............Then why ask for it?

    I'm perhaps hinting that the question was asked in order to gain some free publicity, rather than an attempt to gain an answer, as he tends to ignore advice. Not a bad thing in an entrepreneur who works off gut feelings and can spot things others more experienced are blinded to. But I'm sure TD would welcome the advertising along the lines of the Summer Breeze.
