Both Fuller house and the Conners have very similar plots for the season I want to focus on the fact that in both shows they open a business and offer the viewers a lot of information that they could use when starting a restaurant.
Like many businesses owning a restaurant is a challenge that many faces, you have to think about a lot of things such as the cost the price the product the space and the location as a son of a restaurant owner I recognize my father’s struggle who were 20 hours a day 7 days a week and an overweight diabetic amongst other things but I digress.
In season 5 episode 3 of Fuller house DJ convinces Steve to hang out with Fernando who is struggling with retirement and Jimmy who’s struggling away balancing his time as a freelance photographer, as the episode continues the 3 meet up at Uncle Monty Sandwich Emporium for lunch, along the conversation they received their food and after countless banter the three find out that Uncle Monty’s is moving to Florida and closing the shop in 2 weeks the 3 are distraught and disappointed about the news and then it cuts the next scene.
In the next scene, you see Stephanie and Kimmy as Jimmy and Fernando walking in and offer the 2 a sandwich that is when they reveal that they just bought Uncle Monty’s business with Steve being the investor. Both Stephanie and Kimmy are disappointed that the decision that they made was done without them and are very skeptical as to how the business was going to be run fair when DJ walks in the house she learns from the girls of the situation and also informed her that Steve is the one who’s investing.
At the end of the episode, Steve explains that this was a good business decision and that he can even franchise Uncle Monty’s like subways the girls warm up to the idea and the episode ends.
In episode 5 you have the grand re-opening of Uncle Monty’s which in the beginning has a lot of issues that if you’re not on social media you may run into these problems. Episode 5 titled Ready Player Fuller we have the grand reopening of Uncle Monty’s Andy episode Jimmy is dealing with promotions and ordering products for the store preparing it for the grand re-opening, they run into a few fixable problems they find out that the date of the grand reopening was scheduled for the day after but they don’t have the products that they need for a successful Grand re-opening nor do they have a banner for the event. Later on in the episode, they use they’re getting ready for the grand re-opening it successful but successful for the wrong reasons, unfortunately, everybody received a Groupon for Uncle Monty’s promising an 82% off. As the episode continues they have officially run out of the product as they had earlier predicted so Jimmy makes the unfortunate announcement that they had officially run out product and they weren’t ready for the opening.
Finally, at the end of the episode, the customers band together and decided to share their sandwiches with other customers but before any takers come they’re saved at the last minute by the local distributor.
The Conners had a similar what for its second season so best dive into it with a short recap
In season 2 of The Conners Becky gives birth to her first child, moves into her parent’s basement and goes back to working at the bar during this time Jackie sees that the old lunch box is back on the market, so she decides to see if Becky wants to partner with her in reopening The Lunchbox.
In Discovery they find out that the grandmother still owns the property and has given Darlene power of attorney Darlene is rightfully hesitant to say give up a piece of property that can be used to provide money for the family, that is enough to bring Strife between Darlene Aunt Jackie and Becky to where Becky moves in with Aunt Jackie.
Things continue to go awry when the 2 come over for Thanksgiving dinner, Darlene says something to Jackie and Jackie decides to slap Darlene for what she said to make up there’s a family vote and they vote to reopen The Lunchbox.
Later on, Jackie realizes that she is way over her head when they discover that the maintenance and the property is not up to code and is it going to cost them a lot of money so Jackie ultimately decides to give up until the town of Landford decides to Kitchen to fix the restaurant after they hear about the struggle that they have.
In conclusion in both series, you learn about crowdsourcing or crowdfunding which is the process of receiving funding from the community rather than a bank, and private investing which is considered (OPM) which stands for other people’s money, in Fuller house Jimmy should have edited the date of opening instead of opening the day of error, in addition, Steve could have also avoided the whole issue of charging people for Less for sandwiches by simply editing the Groupon.
