Do any of you GL4x4 members go to the Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Clarkston? My friend owns it and she wants to drum up business. She already has a 'bike night' and was wondering about other things she could do. Would any of you cruise your rigs there on a Saturday night sometime? Maybe you just pass by there a lot, and would like a discount? Any ideas? How about a GL4x4 family night? Alright, post up some ideas. If there is enough response on the survey, then maybe something can get in the works.

possibly. if we had gl4x4 membership cards to carry in out wallets, then showing it would get you a discount... any other card-carrying jeep-related memberships you belong to?

Just was given a gift card for there on Friday. Will probably check it out this week.

No, I don't want to carry a gl4x4 membership card.

No, not really. My friend said that if there was a way to identify yourself in one way or another then she might give a discount. Can't give a discount to everyone...

I was hoping for something more like Jamba Juice as well. :( It's alright by me, best local option I've come by so far. Smoothies are an 8, customer service has been anywhere between a 0-6. I've talked to the owner a few times, super nice, always makes things right. I bet she would have more repeat business by getting a handful of awesome employee's instead of what seems like a truckload of shitty ones. Starting a new business isn't easy, but it seems to be getting better each time I go. My mom owns the Curves (gym for women) at the corner of Dixie and Davisburg roads, places where women congregate is a good place for marketing, probably a better target market then bikers.

Thanks Leah, for the input. I know it wont be easy to hear, but I will forward this on anyhow. I agree, great employees make for a great business, but they are hard to find.
