|developed theme with excellent, affordable dining and an unusually large selection of
high-tech video, virtual reality and other entertainment options will make UFO a
"must see" for out-of-town visitors and a popularly frequented location for
local adults, families, and large group events.
In 1991, Mario Monaco attempted to pursue a restaurant idea based on the Star Trek theme. Unfortunately, when he approached Paramount for trademark permission, he was denied. He decided to broaden the concept to a general space theme and use the name Ultimate Family Outing(UFO).
The Company plans a concept similar to
the successful Dave & Buster's Restaurant that is listed on the New York Stock
Exchange. Dave & Buster's is a 70,000 square foot restaurant offering video and
virtual reality games. UFO's concept is similar but with a highly defined outer space
theme and a broader selection of entertainment options.
The key to UFO's operating strategy is its distintive concept; its comfortable, adult atmosphere; and its high quality dining, bar service and entertainment attractions. UFO will maintain a strict policy regarding children. Families are welcome, but children must be accompanied by their parents, and they are not allowed after 10:00PM.. The Company believes that this policy helps to maintain the type of pleasant, relaxed atmosphere that appeals to adult customers and allows the Company to attract groups such as private parties and business organizations.
The Patented UFO Restaurant Building
Simulating a flying saucer, the building itself
announces the strong outer space theme of the restaurant. Glass-domed and lighted like a
waiting spaceship with a small trail of exhaust, the approach to the building becomes part
of the experience. Accessible with plenty of parking, the 50,000 square foot facility will
have two separate levels for the dining and entertainment pleasure of its patrons.
The most distinctive feature of the interior will be Las Vegas-type moving lights across the ceiling, and a simulated window that appears to offer a view from a moving spacecraft: taking off again. The space theme will be heightened with decor that includes items that seem to be from a space ship placed about the dining and entertainment areas and around the kitchen, and uniforms will be made to seem like space suits.
|Cuisine and Bar
Full menu and complete bar service will be available daily from early
lunch to late night, with style and menu names oriented to reflect the outer space theme. Food and beverages will be available in any section of the building. UFO will offer an extensive menu, individually prepared and moderately priced from $5.95 to $18.95 with most entrees in the $8.95 to $10.95 range and a $7-$8 kids menu. UFO expects the average individual tab to be $20.
The menu will be international, featuring quality selections from filet mignon to hamburgers, gourmet pastas, individually-sized pizza, seafood, steak and chicken. The menu will also feature a wide variety of appetizers, soups and salads.
The full bar service will include over 20 different beers, an extensive wine collection, and non-alcoholic beverages. UFO will offer catering for special events, and plans specials for different nights featuring the cuisine of various nationalities.
