Thanks You!

For 13 years, many, many people have been asking me when I was going to re-open India Joze. When just such an opportunity recently presented itself, I discussed it with family, friends, and long-time supporters. I was gratified by the tremendous outpouring of enthusiasm for the idea. Patrons, clients, customers, co-revelers---your steadfast support is what made it all possible with the original India Joze. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping make it all possible again.

Many of you have commented on how unfair it is that a community resource like India Joze is dependent upon so many people randomly deciding to go out to eat. I am trying to address the peculiar nature of food establishments, that have such tremendous start up costs and on-going overhead, with relatively low incremental costs for each customer. Discount coupons have always seemed unfair to me; the loyal customers who pay full price are subsidizing the coupon-clippers looking for a deal.

One idea I have to turn that around is to sell tiered gift certificates. The more expensive ones come with huge discounts, so a $1000 gift certificate would be worth $1200 in food. The less expensive ones would be less discounted, so a $500 gift certificate would be worth $550.

The further way I honor an ongoing committment to Joze is this. So long as you hold $1000 in gift certificates that you haven't spent, you get a 20% discount on everything: classes, catering, equipment, restaurant food and to go stuff.

(Except gift certificates: you have to buy $1000 in gift certificates to get the 20% discount.) This is a way for India Joze to pay dividends to the Joze community.

I invite your comments.
