No Hay Riesgo, No Hay Premio

por Cheval John

Tiene un deseo que tener su propio negocio, hacer su propio horario y hacer sus propias reglas?

Mike y Laurie Haralson decidieron que tomar el riesgo y abrieron sus propio restaurante se llama “FatBoys.” Es ubicado en 1932 Sam Houston Avenue entre The Draft Bay y Humphrey’s y enfrente de la Universidad Estado de Sam Houston.

Ellos tienen unas variedades de comidas incluye hamburguesa, hot dogs con queso y chili, alas de pollo y muchos mas. Los Haralsons quieren para sus huespedes que sientan como si ellos estan en un lugar especial, entonces la atmosfera es para toda la familia.

El proceso los tomaron 2 anos para cumplir. Cuando los padres de senora Haralson se fallecieron en 2003, la dejaron dinero en que ellos pudieran ponerse el plan en accion. El proximo paso fue encontrar una ubicacion que seria mas conviniente para los huespedes para encontrar. Tienen una vecina que es duena de edificios alrededor de calle 20th y Sam Houston Avenue y ella hablo con un amigo de los Haralsons que era dueno de una estacion de gasolina. El sabia que ellos estaban buscar por un edificio, entonces a el la ha referido a los Haralsons.

Segun a Senora Haralson, “Ella y yo reunimos y ella decidio que financiar el edificio para nosotros.”

Despues de renovacion, el restaurante abrio en Septiembre de 2005 y celebro su quinto anniversario el ano pasado.

Para alguien que quieren ser dueno de sus propias empresas, senora Haralson tiene este consejo: “Necesitan comenzar una empresa que es una necesidad para la gente, no una opcion, como ir a una restaurante para comer y no alquiler un edificio de alguien porque cuando una persona estar pagar la cuenta para los utilidades, tambien esta pagar para el dueno de estos edificios en que esa persona esta alquiler para su empresa.”

No Risk, No Reward

by Cheval John

Have you ever dream of being your own boss, setting your own schedule and making your own rules? Many have those dreams, but do not act upon them for fear of failure.

Mike and Laurie Haralson decided to take the risk and open up their own restaurant called FatBoys. It is located on 1932 Sam Houston Avenue between The Draft Bar and Humphrey’s and right across the street from Sam Houston State University.

They have a variety of foods including burgers, chili cheese dogs, wings, frito pie and many more. The Haralsons wanted their patrons to feel like they were in the hill country, so the atmosphere is family-friendly.

The process took them 2 years to complete. When Mrs. Haralson’s parents passed away in 2003, they left her some money allowing them to put their plan into motion. The next thing they had to do was to find a location that would be very convenient for the customers to find. They had a neighbor that owned buildings around 20th Street and Sam Houston Avenue and she talked to a friend of theirs who had a gas station. He knew that they were looking for a building, so he referred her to them.

According to Mrs. Haralson, “She and I got together and she agreed to finance the building for us.

After remodeling and renovating the building, it officially opened in September of 2005 and they celebrated their five year anniversary last year.

To anyone who wants to own their own business, Mrs. Haralson has this to say: “You need to get into a business that is a necessity for people, not an elective, like going out to eat and do not lease a building from somebody because when you are making monthly payments on utilities, not only are you paying for yourself, but you are paying for the person that you are leasing from.

You can find them on Facebook and their phone number is (936) 295-3902.
