Local food truck and catering business Sancho Streetside opens restaurant in downtown Shawnee

first_imgSancho Streetside owners Connor Barrier (left) and Ryan MoodySancho Streetside is coming off the street and into a new brick-and-mortar space in downtown Shawnee.Well, not completely off the streets. The catering company will still offer its upscale, wood-fire grilled Latin street eats and fusion of Caribbean flavors, and continue providing food truck services at local markets and for Transport Brewery.But now, after two years in business, co-owners Ryan Moody and Connor Barrier are ready to take the next big step to grow the company.“We have had our product out on the streets for almost two years now, testing it out, running it out of a truck, running it as a catering facility,” Moody said, “and we think it’s good enough product that we want to get it out there on a daily basis.”Sancho Streetside opened its first brick-and-mortar restaurant at 11101 Johnson Drive, Suite 110, on the southwest corner of Johnson Drive and Nieman Road. First days of operation were during Old Shawnee Days in June. The space was previously occupied by Sweet T’s, a bakery and barbecue restaurant that closed a few months ago.Barrier said they anticipate offering their new spot as an event space for the local community, such as for Old Shawnee Days.“We’re very happy and fortunate to be a part of a great community that wants to help grow downtown Shawnee,” Barrier said, “so we’re very excited not only with the location but how we’ve been received both through our neighbors as well as our clientele.”In the meantime, the owners are working to make frugal decisions that spur slow and steady growth of their restaurant business. As such, a grand opening for Sancho Streetside has not been set yet because they’re saving up for signage.“We’re trying to grow this company with our income; we don’t to amass a huge amount of debt,” Moody said. “We want to grow as we have enough money and enough people to do it, because we’re firm believers in taking care of the people that help us.”They plan to double the staff to accommodate the new hours in their downtown restaurant, plus they’re still booking up for future catering events, which remain their bread and butter.Restaurant hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.last_img read more

Biting off more than you can chew

first_imgLong nights and short summers don’t seem to have dulled the wit of Torben Melchior, president of the Danish supreme court. He told last weekend’s plenary session of the council of bars and law societies of Europe in Copenhagen that, despite public and media perceptions to the contrary, courts’ sentencing policies are in step with society’s expectations. But, as in Britain, urban myths persist. He told the story of a woman accosting a man in the street to demand compensation for the dog bite she had suffered. ‘He paid out 1,000 euros and the injured woman limped off. “But why did you pay her?” the man’s friend asked. “You don’t even own a dog!” To which the man replied: “Yes, but if it had gone to court, there’s no knowing what might have happened.”’last_img read more

Kent local authority legal teams join forces

first_imgThree mid-Kent local authorities are to join forces in a shared legal services project that aims to save more than £250,000 a year. Under the new model, legal staff at Swale, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells borough councils will remain based at their authorities but support each other in a ‘virtual’ team. A spokesman for Swale said the model will free up the team and allow ‘qualified staff to spend as much time on fee-earning activity as possible’. Each of the teams has between five and eight members of staff. Three group managers will lead the teams locally and form a shared management team that will include a legal operations manager. Set-up costs of the new way of working include a £25,000 computer system, £20,000 set aside for training and up to £4,000 a year for additional travel. This will be offset by forecast savings of £269,000 a year, 17% of current spending, through ‘redesign, revised management arrangements and procurement efficiencies’, a spokesman said. No staff cuts are planned at the moment. Kent County Council is already known as a pace-setter in running local government legal services on commercial lines. Alasdair Robertson, head of business improvement at Maidstone, said: ‘We are seeing how we can best maximise Kent’s expertise, but it is not the same arrangement.’ Meanwhile, the scandal-hit London borough of Haringey is expanding its legal services department to 80, with five new appointments. Posts include assistant heads of legal services in social care, corporate and litigation, and commercial.last_img read more
