Dave Wiley read the agenda.
Benedict Woo was asked to present his vision for a donut and coffee shop at 2017 Main Street, in Blush facials next to WREN. The space is approximately 256 square feet. Coffee will be Green Mountain pods. Hours of operation will be from 5amto 5pm. A coffee and a donut will cost the customer $3.00. Mr. Woo plans on opening June 1, 2017, and would like to incorporate a blue dog on his logo flag.
He explained there was a walk-through of the space for the client that was conducted with Linda Matheson of Peabody & Smith. Jack Anderson and Dave Wiley also participated in the meeting. Sprinklers will not be needed per Jack Anderson Fire Chief. There will be no need for new walls. The existing partition (non structural) front wall will be enlarged to accommodate the service counter and point-of-sale area.
A licensed and insured plumber will use existing holes in floor (from previous salon sinks) to access existing plumbing and wastewater line for 3 bay-sink, mop sink and hand sink. A removable vinyl sheet will be laid over the kitchen area for ease of cleaning. These are required by New Hampshire Dept. of Health and Human Services for licensing.
A stainless-steel hood and fire suppression will be installed over the donut robot. The hood will be hung from the ceiling. A curb and exhaust fan will be installed on the roof. A seamless stainless –steel duct will connect the hood and the fan. This system will require an opening in the roof. An insured and licensed roofer hired by the tenant will professionally complete this work.
A licensed and insured electrician will ensure that the proper power is supplied for the donut robot, steam table, refrigerator and coffee makers. All new electrical work will be completed to code per David Wiley, Bethlehem building inspector.
The coffee makers will be plumbed to a water filter installed in the basement by Carr Wells
