This is an open letter to the Kirkendall community from Jeremy Barrett, who is seeking to purchase the Bad Dog Cafe.
My name is Jeremy Barrett. I am a chef by trade and am currently looking to purchase the Bad Dog Cafe and extend the hours into dinner. To make it a viable business opportunity for me I would require a liquor license.
I know there has been concern in the community towards licensed establishments. As a chef, my business would naturally be focused on the food. However, it is my experience that most diners enjoy a glass of fine wine or a premium beer with their meal. My hours of operation would be no later than 9 p.m. on the patio and 10 p.m. for the restaurant itself and I would be more than willing to sign an agreement with the Kirkendall Community Association stating that my hours of operation would not change.
Also, if there were any concern about a subsequent owner taking over the liquor license and extending the hours, I would be quite happy to sign an agreement stating that I would personally cancel my liquor license to ensure the next owner would be required to go through the entire process of obtaining a new license thereby giving the community the opportunity to review the situation.
I will be attending the Kirkendall Community Association annual meeting on October 25th and would be pleased to discuss any concerns and answer any questions you may have. I look forward to joining your community and would invite your patronage at the Bad Dog Café to enjoy a new local dining experience.
Chef Jeremy Barrett
On behalf of the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association I’d like to thank Chef Barrett for taking the time to address the community in this way. His upfront approach is refreshing and greatly appreciated!
