Vince's Cheesy Opening


Yesterday, Vince's Cheesesteak Shop opened in the same space as the now gone Tony Luke's Cheesesteaks. The Morning Call gave that former cheesesteak business so much press that I blogged about it several times. Although, I wish the Cocca family and Vince's nothing but success, I'm so cheesed off about another fuss at the same spot, that I used the Tony Luke's photo for Vince's. Talking about cheesy, I think that Peter Schweyer was at both openings. I'll be sure to patronize Vince's, along with Zandy's and the Brass Rail.

Good Luck to Vince's. All they need now is the thousands of bodies that the NIZ promised. Looks like the bank will already be streaming down its workforce. It is going from a corporate headquarters to a regional center for the Maryland bank. That's never good for employment.

I will speculate that j.b. reilly induced vince's there by charging little to no rent, and little to nothing in start up costs. he was operating part time out of a country hotel kitchen, so apparently at this juncture in his business life, he wasn't inclined to make much of an investment. that said, with his local reputation, and the area's appetite for cheesesteaks, he should do OK. count on the morning call to provide free promotion, while zandy's pays for an ad every week.
