Excellent attitude! You will live long and prosper.
I don’t accept NO to very many things I want to accomplish. Recently I decided to start a chain of Hot Dog drive-thrus. I formed a corp (BIG WEENIE INC) and started construction on the first drive thru. In Oklahoma the Dept. of Health controls Food Establishments, so I invited them to give me guidance.
They threw me a ringer…the small buildings would each have to have an employee bathroom. The regulation said, one would have to be readily accessible. I pointed this out and even read them the requirements for a Non-Profit (They can use port-a-pottys) and do not even require licensing…and if they get one it is free. They were unyielding! I went to my state rep and he is working on it.
However I just formed a 501 C 3, private foundation non-profit and plan to lease each drive thru to that entity…it will be exempt from all the rules. The only requirement is that the food has to be prepared and served by a non-paid person. No problem, Big Weenie employees on salary, will volunteer!
Added: When the inspectors were leaving I told them “There will be Hot Dogs being sold out of both side service windows on the 1st of next month!” “And you will approve the whole operation!”
