Amfil Technologies Inc. (OTCMKTS:FUNN) has provided an update to shareholders regarding progress it has made with its latest and fifth Snakes & Lattes games bar/caf expected to open in Tucson in Arizona.
Construction of Snakes & Latte Tucson progressing well
The company commenced construction activities at the venue in April shortly after receiving permits, which has progressed well. New walls are already in place, and the company is currently working on lighting, furniture, and kitchen equipment. The company indicated that some aspects of the construction have been rationalized, thus minimizing overall sending requirements. Amfil management has chosen to makes changes to kitchen equipment by applying the Snakes & Lattes Tempe success and experience. This is to have it reflect a new menu that had positive feedback in the Tempe location but won’t derail the opening of the Tucson location.
The US Snakes & Lattes Expansion Team is working with the Tucson property landlord to ensures the venue becomes successful. The team has already received approval for the location and picked an exterior design as well as signage. The company selected the design to give the Snakes & Lattes Tucson location an eye-catching appearance on University Avenue. Interestingly the landlord also offered some relief because of the COVID-19 restrictions.
Snakes & Lattes Tucson location has received liquor permit
The company has received a liquor license permit for the ground floor and is working on getting a license for upstairs from the liquor board. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the company is working on launching the downstairs and will proceed with the opening of the second floor once the liquor board approves.
The company reopened the Snakes & Lattes Tempe location last month, and it is among the few open restaurants that are serving alcohol. Most locations didn’t survive the shuttering of business and might not reopen. Because of its best practices focused on social distancing regulations, the Tempe location is now serving customers. The company is planning to reopen its three locations in Ontario and Toronto soon.
