I cannot believe this business has lasted, especially in this economy. This party-retail concept might work for women; I'm baffled that men have bought into it. The guy sells junky grill implements for $40. Yeah, I can get a Chinese-made meat fork at Target or Walmart for $5.

Food is offered is good but over priced...$9 for 5 brats is a bit much.

I'm sure there's some things that need to improve like every business but how about giving the guy some credit instead of trashing him online. Congratulations to Nick and I hope this inspires others to take a risk, create some jobs and make a difference!

Lame pyramid scheme. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I think the idea has merit but I would like to see more exotic meats, stuff I can't get at Von Hanson or Cub. Think bison, emu, lamb, elk... Those would be worth paying more for. As for implements, anyone who knows how to grill knows you don't need over sized spatulas, tongs and forks. The normal ones work quite nicely.

An entrepeneur for the American Dream. Takes an idea that supports gender stereotypes, gets it running with investor support, then cuts his staff from 15 to 4 and outsources the rest of the jobs to India and China. I'm sure he also thinks that tax hikes on the wealthiest two percent are job killers. American hero.

Since the Strib has the least effective comment managing system, I'll post again with apologies if this gets repeated. So the guy takes a company with 15 employees, outsources jobs so he only has to keep 4 in the country, and makes a million dollars, and that makes him a classic American entrepeneur? So much for the wealthy being job creators. Now tell me more about tax hikes on the wealthy being job killers.
