General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Starbucks in the park?
« Last post by Jemmicat on Today at 02:17:01 PM »
Keeping the number of drink options for Starbucks to a minimum is essential for this not to be a mess...

Although I like the Freestyle coke machine at the pizza place, it is a major congestion point. It is just as much a congestion point at the restaurants that have it too. It takes 3-4 times longer per soda fill due to the interaction and menu section and all the choices. Great idea... poor implementation

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Starbucks in the park?

I'm certain they could have set up a coffee shop location without using Starbucks or any other coffee brand.  I've wanted them to add a coffee shop for awhile, but why not sell their own brand and train a few employees as baristas? They could've called it Mountain Jacks brand and sold it by the bag.  I always hoped they would turn Mountain Jacks building into a coffee shop.

I feel like you’re overthinking this.  From what I’ve heard, they’ll serve regular black, decaf and tea.  This is only “serving Starbucks coffee” and not full blown Starbucks. I don’t even foresee there being baristas.

I'm not opposed to Starbucks being in the park, but I'd rather not see it in the mill, personally.

Nor do I want to deal with the long lines that come with any Starbucks should I decide to get Cinnamon Bread from the new Bread location.

Does anyone know if construction is continuing during this hiatus of life?

Received confirmation that the ride is still being built.  They hope to have it ready to go for the park’s opening (whenever that might be).

In Oklahoma (and doing the billion dollar driving forward program) we've had two contractors close down because of the virus (one being a general and one as a sub-contractor). ODOT has provided us with directive if the contractors chose to close down because of the virus. So right now in Oklahoma, it's being left up to each construction company if they are closing or not.

I talked with a President of a large contractor and he said in Colorado their jobs have been closed.

On the job sites we are doing our best to maintain the rules provided by the state. The companies have even expanded their safety protocol testing workers for fever multiple times daily, having separation requirements, going to online meetings, and limiting personnel in field offices. I know my employees are using their phone for communication with the contractors and keeping their distance. A lot more digital documents for material tickets, deliveries, etc.

We had a company send us 43 seperate job quotes for machining work. We couldn't do them all if we wanted. We made a couple of calls to find out why we got bombarded and some of their suppliers have shut down voluntarily. If the Gov't is gonna pay above and beyond current pay on unemployment, whynot. We are pretty old school though and quoted double time pay factored in. We expect to actually get these jobs.

The issues a lot of sites are running into is not that they themselves are shutting down due to COVID, but the places they get supplies from (sheet metal, etc) are shut down.  So they cannot do anything until those reopen

They should be.  there has been no mention of closing down constructions or materials suppliers.. (so I am still working),

BUT i feel like that is going to change very soon.. :-\


AND if they are they should be making huge progress with the public not in the way, they dont have to hide equipment, just keep moving forward with the job..
