How many restaurants are too many restaurants? I have a BID client who is concerned that there are too many restaurants and other eating establishments in the district. The commercial strip is located in a residential neighborhood with few local employers except the retailers along the strip.
Have any of you heard of zoning codes that regulate the number of eating establishments along a commercial strip?
Any ideas on how to determine how many are too many? Initial comparisons of local disposable income and number of eating establishments seem to indicate that there is not enough local cash to keep all these place going. However, they seem to be full all the time!
