I was wondering if anyone has asked to vend at a location via "snail mail" ?

My reason is that the location is a gentleman's club and have no idea on when, or how to meet the owner. The club is located right outside the main gate to a military base and The lunch traffic is just insane!!!

I know this method probably isn't the best first off but has anyone used this for the first contact?

Anyone have a proposal they have used?

Thanks
Joe

bmarley5780 is asking about him, (bmarley5780) contacting the owner, not the owner contacting him by letter.

Cool-

Ya, I looked on the local GIS mapping site and have his name and address.

Probably would be a good idea to send a pic of the setup with contact info...

Any other ideas on what to include?

Depending on the place there may be NO chance you will never meet the owner(s). Best bet is go in early, take some samples and a menu and ask for the "Manager". Sell the manager on the idea and let him deal with the owner if need be... thats his job.

Most of “those” clubs in these parts sell food in addition to the scenery. Might be competition for the club.

From back i the day.....this one does not.

Either way, there is a town ordinance against MFU, and peddlers serving after dark.
