04/26/2020

41 days, my restaurant has been quiet. 993,000 cases ago. I’ve grown numb to educating myself on all things virus. Since then, I’ve wept at those sad stories I’ve had the courage to read, or watch about. I feared for my father’s health. I worried about my girlfriend’s work and her family, and I monitored my daughter’s wellbeing. For my business, I filled out applications, and more applications. I uploaded documents. Drafted emails, called, and worried.

Today, is exciting, but filled with nervousness, because tomorrow, Monday, April 27th, my crew and I will open our drive through window. To meet the intent of our Governor’s guidelines, we’ll keep our lobby and patio closed; opening them is not worth the risk to you or us. We will be serving a full menu, and our seafood tacos will still be on special every Friday, along with our Sunday special. And, we will serve as safe as we can.

I don’t want to underscore our re-open, but I do want to highlight the plight of the small business. I spent countless hours on the phone, mostly with Taco Del Mar franchisees. Their anxiousness was at times overwhelming to me. Any lifelines thrown, must be matched with a ferocious reach, because all other businesses are going after the same. So many are still treading water, waiting… On overcast days I’d ask myself, what’s it all for? And, many days I’d think… for all the past work. So, if you do get out and about, and you pass a business, whether open or closed, know that inside is an owner’s mind pacing through life, numbers, and future, with no real certainty on which direction to take.

I’m Frank Schoonover, owner of the Taco Del Mar in Wandermere. Come warm your bellies by our drive through. My young crew is very well-managed, and very concerned for your wellbeing. Tell them exactly what you want for your order. Give them safety tips on how to make the interaction with you safer. Have patience as they learn the nuances of drive through operations. And most importantly make sure they give you their best smile 😷

Customers of Taco Del Mar in Wandermere,

We are temporarily closing our doors. In heavy seas, high winds, with no stars, and battering horizontal rain, a skilled sailor will pull his sails, batten down the hatches, strap in, and ride out the storm. Here are my orders:

Crew,
Tonight, we will be closed, fully closed, until the virus crisis has passed. No caters, or window burrito sales. Tomorrow morning we'll donate our remaining produce to Serve Spokane, which in turn, distribute to those in dire need. The rest of our inventory we'll keep on our shelves, walk-in, and freezer, ready for us to prep, when we re-open.

This is most important, and the main reason why closing is the right thing to do. Understand, and practice a disciplined social distance. Everyday, the world is learning more about the effects of this virus. It's sneaky. 4 of 5 people that catch it, catch from others that didn't even know they had it. And, young people run a risk of long term effects; you are not immune. Regardless, don't take the risk; those that are closest to you need to count on you.

Our store. Our store, and business will be fine. While we're closed, I'll paint. I'll fix. I'll clean. And, I'll redesign for better operations in our back area. I'll seek help from our landlord, the state, the IRS, and the government for financial partnership. Times are uncertain, but with uncertainty, possibilities are endless. Let's all keep in touch. I'll send pics of my progress, and ask you for suggestions. Stay safe.

Frank

Mom told me, “WASH YOUR HANDS!!” ✋🤚

Boot camp yelled, “WASH YOUR HANDS for 20 seconds with hot water. Begin on my command…WASH HANDS!!”

Health Dept inspection report, “HANDS WASHED as required.”

TV & Newspapers, “WASH YOUR HANDS, it’s a national emergency!”

At Taco Del Mar, and I’m sure, all of you… WE HAVE DRY HANDS, NEED LOTION!!

Spokane, as a small business, we’ve increased our awareness of our personal, and store’s cleanliness. If you visit us, be assured that we’re doing what we can, given our resources, to keep our restaurant as clean as yours and our hands. We’re all in this together. We see your patronage as our privilege to help keep you fed and healthy, and to keep us working, fed, & healthy. We want everyone to feel safe and happy if you decide to dine with us. I’m Frank Schoonover, owner of the Taco Del Mar in Wandermere, on North Division. When nothing is certain, everything is possible 😊

Minimum wage was how much when you started?Before I joined the Navy, it was $2.65. Five days from now, it’ll be $13.50. ...
12/27/2019

Minimum wage was how much when you started?

Before I joined the Navy, it was $2.65. Five days from now, it’ll be $13.50. I read that the buying power of those old dollars back then have shrunk to 22 cents. So today, it would take $10.45 to match the buying power of $2.65. Inflation? I took Econ 101 at SFCC, before I was kicked out for excessive absenteeism. I called the Navy – I wanted back in.

I’m Frank Schoonover, the owner of the Taco Del Mar located in Wandermere. Yes, it’s true, I got the boot from a community college. “Don’t be like me!” I tell young employees, at fitting times. Friends, minimum wage is taking a big leap upward this New Year. I’ve got no bias for, or against, especially after all my research into its history and meaning. But, I want us all to understand that businesses with thin profit margins, such as small restaurants will be in a state of shock. Not because of the minimum wage itself, but because of its sudden, dramatic rise. Smooth increases are much easier to digest. Same for you, subtle menu price increases are much easier to stomach over time.

Last month I took my daughter to lunch, she had the bread bowl soup, I bought the half turkey sandwich, which by the way, took me 7.5 bites to consume. That’s 79 cents per bite! It’s a habit of mine to analyze my restaurant’s pricing with others. Cost per bite is relative though; it depends on what you place value on. As a restaurant owner I stress over details to ensure value for our customers. My prices will increase sharply, but so will my stress. BTW, my burrito will jump from 46, to 57 cents per bite.

As I said through a previous post, we’ll continue to develop our young workers, but even more so, as their wages take them to a new tax bracket. Your money is earned. If you decide to spend it at our restaurant, then we must earn it. I employ six young adults at minimum wage, one above minimum, and two on salary. There has never been any owner compensation, only owner contribution. Karma from my college days? No. Instead, it’s a privilege to serve both employees and customers. Pay us a visit. Watch our minimum wage crew serve Spokane. Review our work. Reflect back on your starting wages. How far have you come since?

Remember your first job? Judge my following opinions with your comments.

I employ 9 of Spokane’s young adults at any given time. Average age is 19; a formative time. I’ve a crucial responsibility to continue their development. For most, this is their first professional experience. I see it as my job, to start, or continue their development into citizens with determined courage, a deep appreciation of labor, and confidence in gaining any skill. My managers and I have formed a work culture that forces problem solving, quick action, and forgivable missteps. When they transition, they’ll understand that they are solely responsible for their successes and failures, a developed trait needed for true success with their future careers. But, most importantly, they would have worked a common mission, which leads to lasting friendships.

Letters of recommendation populate my laptop. Post taco careers include an appointment to the Culinary Institute of America, degrees in Hospitality Management, Human Resource, Teaching, and Business, along with numerous trade school graduations, and military officer appointments, and enlistments. Others have moved up the pay scale to banking, nursing assistants, management, physical therapy, day care, and counseling. Several marriages and babies have been formed into loving families.

I ask that when you visit any business that employs our city’s young adults, realize that you have been in their position in life as well. Also, think back at the mentors you had then, or events that inspired you, and hope that the young adult working their job has access to the same. Spokane customers have a unique privilege in honoring our youthful workers by helping them at their job. If by chance you visit my group of employees, help them in your own way. Correct them if they falter, calm them if they seem anxious, most importantly, talk to them, directly, or through a review; good or bad.

I’m Frank Schoonover, owner of the Taco Del Mar in Wandermere. I begin the process of moving my employees out as soon as I hire them. I’m a 12-year veteran of the hospitality industry, and a 25-year navy veteran.

Our Story

Taco Del Mar in Wandermere is owned by a 25-year Navy veteran, native of Spokane, and Shadle Park H.S. alumni. Nearly all facets of our Taco Del Mar is run by Spokane’s young adults. The owner takes no compensation, leaving the businesses margin to go toward employees. For most, this is their first job, and we strive to help develop those skills needed for their career choices. Some have completed college while working full time, other’s have completed trade schools, one completed a prestigious culinary school, and others have learned the importance of duty, service, business, and hospitality. We love what we do and train every day to achieve our mission statement:

Our eagerness to know people and to make our mutual days and lives better is our mission to be your favorite place to eat and talk about. Our friendships will grow with each day, our operations scrutinized for brilliance, and our entrees... addicting! This is our mission and we love every challenge it poses.

I'm really missing my weekly stop to get a burrito, nacho, tacos or taco salad. I'll be in once you're able to open again.
Always friendly staff, great food. What’s not to like!
Train staff on being more friendly! I have a family of 6 and we drive out there all the way from the south hill and every single time we are treated so poorly due to placing a big order:( as I business owner myself I guess I fail to understand how can they not be grateful for customers spending their money on their food when Spokane is full of options!! Love the tacos but after the way we were treated today I think we will be finding our selfs a new place to buy tacos since our business is not appreciated
Thank you for the amazing catering for my kids birthday party! Plent to go around & everyone said it was delicious
WAITING FOR TACOS!
I will come and try it soon ..from Loon lake. Looking forward to some good yummmmmmy food.🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮.. .
Taco del mar-wandermere will you marry me?
Hello how much is your 5lb burrito on request???
Thank you for catering our delicious lunch today- professional service- amazing food!
Ordered fish tacos yesterday and I would like to comment that these are some of the best fish tacos I've had. There would be only two things that would make them the most outstanding ever. One a use of two tortillas because of the moisture to hold them together and two serving a small piece of lime.
