    How is Hayward doing?

    I was surprised to hear Hayard has a Famous Daves, Is this a problem site? It seems to small of a town. A great town but small.

    I did hear that Forest Lake may be getting more popular with the locals. At least thats what the parking lot looks like from 35 W.

    • Don't get too concerned about Famous Daves at Hayward Wisconsin relative to the company Famous Daves Inc. (DAVE) It is not
      part of that company. The Hayward location was the first restraunt to be opened by Dave Anderson. When DAVE went public Mr.
      Anderson chose to keep ownership of the Hayward location in one of his privately owned companies. Dave lives just a half mile from
      that restraunt so it is more of pet projcet of his than anything. They try different menu changes there and I have found pricing
      to be different at times. You can count on the same good taste and bascially the same menu choices. When DAVE was first formed
      the Hayward location paid DAVE a few percent of their profits for use of the menu and the name, that is no longer the case. The
      only remaining direct financial relationship between the two companies (that I know of) is that the Hayward location still buys
      their basic supplies from DAVE.
      You are right, Hayward would be too small a town for a Famous Daves, but the location does quite well. There are lots of tourists in the area year round plus the restraunt is associated with one of Daves upscale resorts.
