They say most small businesses fail within the first two years, so I have to wonder about the chance for success of Mix n’ Munch, a cereal and grilled cheese cafe coming soon to the heart of downtown South Pasadena.
If I had to open a cereal and grilled cheese cafe I suppose South Pas would be the place to do it. This is definitely a kid-dominated town, and I have to assume kids are the target audience here. But still, how many bowls of cereal do you have to sell to pay rent on the most popular commercial stretch of Mission Street?
Not to mention, don’t most people go out to eat so they don’t have to go through the trouble of preparing a meal? And aren’t a bowl of cereal and a grilled cheese sandwich two of the easier meals to prepare?
I’ll reserve (anymore) judgement for opening day, but if you happen to see the Mix n’ Munch sign replaced by a for lease sign, remember, you heard it here first.
