    BK: Said he fell off a loading dock and injured his left arm, over 30 years ago. 1978?
    Anyone?

    He did not know where, but for some reason, I am thinking people on the forum thought it was in CO.

    BK: As I remember it, some have posted that they thought he was in food infomercials, maybe 20 to 25 years ago. 1983 to 1988?

    BK: Someone posted that they thought he had been seen at food trade show conventions. I think they said Florida. Maybe 1990's?

    I will check threads and my notes for any more information and about possible corrections on time periods.
    Please, anyone just jump in, correct my posts. I did not have info at hand when I posted.

    Whoops, I didn't see this before starting the restaurant colfax angle thread. Should we merge these two?

    Regarding the loading dock injury-it may have been in Indiana when he was in his 20's.

    He and I had a spirited discussion the other day regarding flatware: where it is being made, where it has been made in the past and what constitutes good quality. He had a lot to say about it.

    So I have been thinking: Should we pick a few industries and work our way through them before we move on to the next. For example-

    Lets say we pick restaurant supply and restaurant engineering. We can find all of the companies in CO associated with those two things and slam them with flyers.

    Does this make any sense??

    O/T-I used to work for a flatware manufacturer which is why I could hold my own in the discussion with him, lol....

    IMO, no.
    I'm glad you made the post so that this specific topic can be discussed more; and I think it should.

    This will allow everyone to get a game plan on exactly where to target when sending stuff out. It was on my list of things to do once I get those info pages set up that I was talking about.

    I've been collecting food industry sites to my bookmarks along the way of my last weeks worth of reading, etc.

    Hiya Rose,
    can I abbv Rose? I agree on breaking up the Rest ind info. I added the two sites I thought would be of interest on the other thread. I guess we'll take a group consensus.

    I found two Restaurants on Colfax that have been in business since the 1960's and I wanted to send BK's flyer info but won't be able to get to it until tomorrow or next week.

    I'd like to see us list what we have done... say, I send to Johnny's Diner so we aren't duplicating efforts.

    I do think we can combine who we sent to and the discussion on the restaurant equipment/engineering/products info. But would like to know what others think and we'll make a group decision.

    Cool! Believe. I used to work for a paper/plastics and janitorial "re-di" for the restaurant and hospital markets. Though they only handled disposables at the time.

    Rose is fine.
    I sent you a PM.
    I have a few sites saved for Denver IIRC that need to be followed up on.

    IMO, this post should be retitled to restaurant work related

    I agree. Pick restaurant supply or restaurant owners.
    My son owns a very nice restaurant and he opened a new one last fall. He gave me a long talk about cost of flatware and nice quality dishes.
    I will ask him where he buys his flatware.
