condition: excellent

Our misfortune, bad timing and arrogance could be your opportunity to have the diner we always wanted.
We felt that we found our dream opportunity in Hominy Oklahoma's only town diner.
The previous owner had successfully been serving the community of Hominy for over 16 years before he fell ill and passed away leaving the diner empty for over a year, when my brother and I found it and essentially fell in love with it.
The diner needed extensive rehabilitation and upgrades but we wanted it.
In short we spent far to much money on the rehab and didn't leave enough for operating capital, the rule is you should have 2-3 years capital to fall back on and we were just arrogant enough to think we would be the exception to this rule but after 6 tight months we realized we were mistaken.
Hominy Oklahoma has an amazing history, more specifically the story of the Osage Indians and their brilliance in getting the mineral rights to their reservation and my favorite part the almost unknown story of the all Native American Indians pro football team that challenged and beat the 1927 world champion football team known as the NY Giants.
This town is still very proud of their football legacy and it carries over to their High school football team.
Hominy is located at the intersection of Hwy 20 and Hwy 99, lots of traffic from Pawhuska to Cleveland and Skiatook to Fairfax but no signs for diner exists.
We were anticipating doing deliveries particularly to the prison located just 10 miles away, they have 136 employees and also deliveries to locals as there are many elderly that may not drive.
We served mostly traditional Oklahoma favorites, biscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak, charbroiled burgers, (Our biggest seller) and hand cut fries, homemade onion rings, home made soups including NW Clamb Chowder (we are from Oregon) we began having people come just for the chowder, much better than Red Lobster.
The diner is located dead center in the middle of Main street Hominy Oklahoma, next to the TAG office across from the best Native American Indian art gallery in the area and the old Rexall Drug store.
The tourism is significant and some what untapped but the diner is on many of the tourist routes.
You have oil workers, ranchers, and then the seasonal activity customers, hunters, fishermen etc.
Now with all of this being said if you were to purchase the diner you could of course serve anything you like but we chose to serve what the community wanted and then some and I haven't mentioned till now the only competition or other restaurants in town are a Simple Simmons, a Sonic and a Mexican restaurant that most people get very tired of very quickly but the food is decent usually.
We would love to talk about this opportunity with any interested parties.
This really is almost untapped particularly when you consider the growth potential of Hominy being fairly close to Tulsa and the vast numbers of people leaving Tulsa for a safer quieter life and the small oil towns surrounding Tulsa are enjoying the growth and its potential for a great future.
