BIZNOTE: Wondering what’s up with Gyro Heroes?

Six months after we reported Gyro Heroes was coming to the ex-Baskin Robbins at 4111 SW Admiral Way, it’s not open yet, though signage has been up a while. After weeks of going by almost daily in hopes of finding someone to ask “what’s up?” we finally happened onto someone there today. They’re currently awaiting inspections, we’re told, and hope to finally open within a month.

    As a daily customer of the Starbucks on Admiral that share a parking lot with Gyro Hero’s I must say their constant garbage pile against their building and aggressive parking signs are not very inviting. That being said I have heard some good things about their food and will be one of their first customers. Welcome to the neighborhood. I hope my first impressions are wrong.

    That’s what I assumed. Most business openings are delayed for inspections. A bar I was waiting for in White Center opened months late due to inspections. My favorite old school Mexican place on Capital Hill, La Cantina, took over the ex-Starbucks space next to it to open a Tequila bar, and they hoped to open it “late summer” but are STILL waiting on inspections to this day.

    Given the history of Starbucks patrons stealing the parking spots assigned that building I don’t blame them labeling what’s theirs. I hope they enforce a towing policy, that’ll show the coffee snobs.

    Questions Authority – You are mistaken – Starbucks customers aren’t “stealing” anything. The lot is open to all customers of both buildings per landlord. Gyro Hero wanted the spots painted as a means of ensuring spots are available for their customers. They spots are not enforceable and no towing will occur. But thanks for playing.

      If the landlord allows signage and designated spots, towing can and will be enforced. Thanks for playing who knows the rules. 🤣😂😚

Sorry, comment time is over.
