Frozen yogurt opening date

Opening a frozen yogurt business is tough work, especially when it is your part time job. We are getting really close to opening.   The target date is April first for the first store in Marin.   The location is Larkspur Landing, but we still have three inspections by the Board of Health, fire Department and Building Dept.  This last week we were delayed because the company that was supposed to install the glass for the sneeze guard did not order the glass.  I ended up switching companies to East bay Glass, who said they can get it sooner.   Then they called saying because the edges are mitered it, will take a few more days.

    Taylor company delivered the Yogurt machines on Monday.  They ran us through how they work and how to clean them.   Unfortunately one of the machines made some weird clunking noises and then stopped working.  Not a good sign for a brand new 15,000 dollar machine. Taylor sales rep was very responsive and will have a new part out this week. Cleaning the machines is allot harder then I could have imagined.  They say it is very simple, and takes about 30 minutes.   It took us over an hour.   But I can see after we get the system down, we can get it closer to that 30 minute mark. The machines came with a DVD and manual, but for future employees we need to make a simpler system for them to follow.
