When I go into a butcher shop, I can smell salt, cheese and refrigeration in the air. Those are for the actual butcher shops that sell animal protein, but I wonder what one that was based off of wheat gluten and other plant based foods smell like? Do you think it would have a tofu, cardboard smell, or a constant cumin aroma? Have you ever taken a whiff of veggie businesses and noticed how strong the cumin or coriander is in the air? Maybe it’s just me.
I came across this video several months ago now and was really shocked by the negative feedback it received on social media. I read some comments claiming that a butcher shop not based on actual butchery is false advertisement, and still spreads a message of cruelty. I think some people just take things to seriously. It’s a gimmick, and gimmicks make money. Whether you agree with it or not, you have to admit that it’s a creative idea. If it has a good location, I’m sure it will do well, at least initially, thanks to the media buzzing about it. What do you think?
Well, here’s a quick video about it for those that are curious to see it. Does this make you think about a cool business idea you have? Just go for it. Don’t be scared. If you can dream it, you can make it a reality. The pair behind this business venture are siblings. They are the typical, trendy-looking forward thinkers that are just aiming to better the environment, be a little kinder to animals and make money (last one is my assumption). The food doesn’t look appetizing to me, but I’m sure that a lot of it is tasty. Different, but tasty.
I’m sharing this for my own personal reasons, so that I can file this away and check back in a year or two to see what the shop will be up to then. I’m curious, if you can’t tell. Is this the beginning of a franchise chain? Or…?
