Assault of restaurant owner renews calls for more police downtown

Quote:
“What are we spending our money on if (police) aren’t around?” Scottodifrego asked.

Good question. But if there’s any silver lining, it’s this: polite whispers about security downtown are growing into a full-throated cry for help.

I would imagine candidates aren't exactly lining up at the door to attend the WSFC police academy. I'm not sure what the solution is. Do we draw limited resources from other parts of the city and place them downtown?

It appears as if the Bib's Downtown space may have an interested tenant! ...just waiting to see if they sign the lease and make it official. If they do, Wilson-Covington will be the General Contractor and Alliance Triad will be the architect.

Exciting! I just passed it the other day and marveled that the space is still vacant.

Not downtown and maybe not correct thread but I noticed a new MyFrii is open on Burke Mill Road. I thought I saw this posted on the forum but cannot find it. Anyway, my comment is that MyFrii headquartered in W-S is part of ZorAbility the very succesfull owner of East Coast Wings founded and headquartered (ZorAbility) in W-S - congratulations.

My question is that while visiting the website of ZorAbility https://zorability.com/ noticed that the headquarters is listed as Winston-Salem but the picture is a gigantic view of Charlotte's skyline - so what do I not understand about this?

It seems to me that ZorAbility is really a VC/management group that uses franchise sales and/or management fees to obtain their equity stake in the companies. "ZorAbility provides a comprehensive approach to franchising and offers a suite of professional services. Assessing franchise growth potential, developing a business model, providing franchise support systems, coaching or advisory function, investment strategies, or acquisition of emerging brands as demonstrated with the acquisition of GetFried, a french fry snack concept, in June of 2019. ZorAbility is the leader in franchise management and development. Contact us for more information."

Thanks for this - I'm a bit slow on this, I reckon - is this another Krispy Kreme thing that was founded in W-S, listed with corporate headquarters here and moving, touting, and otherwise promoting Charlotte? Apparently W-S cannot compete on any front.

I agree with what you said. I have heard that "Winston" is leaving Winston-Salem to move to Charlotte. Not sure if Salem can survive without Winston.

A bar is interested in opening at the O'Hanlon Building. It's still early and they may back-out. No leases signed at this time.
