A quick question. You've already opened it with no menu and a name you don't like?

Ah, I see. Other than shady characters such as JGPH1A, what type of clientele are you trying to attract? Where is it located ... in a posh sector of town, beachside, in a bowling alley, etc.?

I'm at a loss here. You opened up a new establishment with no Business plan? You didn't spend nights awake thinking about all of the possibilities before you even opened the door?

Yes, it all sounds a bit fishy!

This will be an easy task. The last time I was in Wheeling, the culinary feature was the local convenience store advertising 50-piece buckets of chicken.

Surely the potential is all to the upside!

Convert into vegetarian restaurant -less competition and trendy - and call it PETA....( just joking ..)- but I'm a vegetarian and have problems finding a decent place in many cities.
Depends what envirement your restaurant is locatd-big city with ethnical population or rural village with rather settled gourmet's habits .
If your place is targeting meat-eaters,call in "Carnivore" ( ther's a place like this in Nairobi,where they sell all kinds of wild animal's meat..) - if you go more for pizza-clients,use an italian name like "Fontana di Trevi" and put a fountain in your restaurant !

I live in Oregon. I was last in Wheeling in 1994, I believe it was, for a sordid weekend involving a Days Inn with an in-room Jacuzzi.

If it has a grill you better serve up a good hamburger, that is my only condition.

And Mt. Dew, I need my Dew to keep me going through the day.

Sorry, does that mean that you plan to actually move the restaurant? I would really have put the thought into a menu and an innovative catchy name before actually opening up shop; all you've done is wasted a lot of capital on branding and literature which is going to be replaced. Plus, if you go and change your name after a few months you'll just confuse your current customer base. Changing the food on the basis of economic class is a petty strange idea too; I mean over here in the UK, Prince Harry was recently snapped eating a Big Mac in a road-side cafe... food generally crosses divides, it's the price though which stops it.

Do you plan on changing the type of food you serve completely, or just keep expanding your range, in order to change the economic class of your customer, because 'stuff like french fries, hamburgers, chicken' etc... isn't exactly something you are going to be able to charge that much of a premium for in order to attract the higher spending customer, they will just feel a little ripped off - unless of course you manage to get an amazing reputation for being the best joint for miles, but that doesn't come easily.

Hehe - that's not bad. Maybe spelt "Uppchux".

Wow - that's up market for you, isn't it ?

Menu wise, think interesting and unusual - good Indian or Thai recipes, and (very important) - excellent and original desserts, not just cheesecake and icecream (unless it's served with melted Mars Bar sauce (c)JGPH1A All Rights Reserved.

If your target-customer base is rather upper-middle class,you'd definitely would like to add some special kick to your menu by adding some exotic flavour ( Asian or Middle Eastern ),since these folks usually have travelled a bit and would appreciate to have something a little bit un-common.
Pizza and Hamburgers are the least appealing ingredients to a restaurant menu for many,unless you specifically target that group- but then you don't need our advise but just a good supplier of meat,potatoes and a pizza-cook (hey- make it at least a guy from Napoli..)
If you'd like to look a little bit further than that ,you might want to specialise in some form of ethnic food,trype of dishes (just salads and chicken,great cheese plates and terrific deserts..)-have a decent wine -card ( If you have a licence ) and tons of different imported beers.( let's face the bitter truth - American beers tastes like cat-p... compared to Belgian German or Czech beer )  praise 
How many seats do you intend to run and how many personnel would be involved in the restaurant?

Bad enough that this place is loaded with arm-chair CEOs that bitch about airlines, now you want to turn them into executive chefs?

Make sure you have TUMS...Alka-Seltzer and Pepto Bismol for suggestions obtained here; although I will vouch for CastleIsland's cooking.
