Is In-N-Out Burger Solano's Favorite Burger Restaurant?

Why Solano Feels In-N-Out Burger is the best fast food restaurant.

California culture, and Solano in particular, loves cars, beaches and fast tasty food. Solano has lots of diversity (sorry non LGBT loving Chick-fil-A) and Popeyes chicken. Californians say you'll it if you'd ever tried it.

Since Southern California fast food restaurant expanded, customers line up for a famous burger with fries and a shake.

The Solano fast food restaurant has locations in Vallejo, Fairfield and Vacaville.

They have a very short menu as they specialize in great hamburgers, French fries and milk shakes. The menu is as short, as the lines of people waiting are long in their Vallejo, Fairfield and Vacaville locations.

They might not skimp on food quality. Fries are made fresh from whole potatoes. They grind their own beef at each Solano site. Prices are affordable for the quality too.

Homeless Hurting Solano Business Climate. Will Clients Get More Accustomed To The Zombies?

SF Bay Area Business Taken Over By Homeless. Next Is Solano. It's Hurting Solano Businesses Who Don't Want Their Clients Scared Away.

Donald Trump blasted San Francisco leaders for how poorly the solved the homeless crisis. The situation in San Francisco is a disgrace, just as Trump said. Then there’s the trickledown effect of San Francisco homeless coming to Solano County.

Solano homeless have greatly changed their behavior in the past 6-12 months. They are considerably more aggressive in going to the bathroom anywhere they please in public. It’s worse in San Francisco though.  Vallejo, Benicia, Fairfield, Suisun and Vacaville police are not sure how to stem the Solano homelessness tied coming in.

Solano homeless are everywhere: Gas stations, outside shopping centers, on street medians, even making a huge bunch of trash in front yards of people’s homes such as in Vallejo recently.  Solano homeless walk up restaurants sifting through their garbage looking for food. The homeless are effecting commercial real estate prices in the greater Bay Area and may continue until people get more accustomed to the “zombies” walking wherever they may.

Will Trump really round up Solano County’s homeless? Solano Business News asks where will these transients go to get rehabilitated? 

Homeless Continue Hurting The Solano County Business Climate. The Zombies Go Everywhere. Will Clients Get More Accustomed To The Zombies? They May Need To Because It They Are Scared From One Place, They May Encounter Zombies Elsewhere.

Uber Driver Into “Homeless Gym Showering". But Works 60 Hours Wk. Immaculate Car.

Homeless Uber Driver Goes To Gyms For Showering. You Don't Always Know Who You Are Next To In Public Gyms.

Uber Driver Is Homeless In Bay Area, Working 60 Hrs / Week

The homeless Uber driver drives a very nice and clean car. You would never guess it’s  both a sleeping place and workplace. The homeless Uber driver calculates he puts in maybe 60 hours a week driving. 

For bedtime he tries to legally park somewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. The practical Uber driver handles his needs by “Homeless Gym Showering” by signing up a gym membershp. He’ll often be vacuum the car. And thank goodness for powering his electronic devices from the car.

With better Solano home rental prices, maybe the driver should consider living in Solano County?

Solano Went Up. Despite Most Of Bay Area Home Prices Going Down. A Price Change Sea Saw.

Over Priced Homes In Other Parts Of SF Bay Area Bring Buyers To Solano.  While Most Of Bay Area Home Prices Went Down Solano County's Went Up.

Look at the outflow of real estate owners leaving the inner Bay Area and choosing western Solano County's Vallejo, Benicia, Fairfield and Suisun. Vacaville is also favored. Though Dixon and Rio Vista are farther out.

The median San Francisco Bay Area price for new and existing houses plus condos fell to $815,000 in July. That's down 4.7% over June, and then 4.1% from July 2019.

San Francisco Bay Area home prices dropped for three straight months.  Meanwhile the San Francisco Bay Area is enjoying a 10 month streak of creating more jobs.

SF Bay Area Just Exceeded 4.1 million Jobs. 10 Month Upward Streak.

The San Francisco Bay Area Economy Can Look Rosy.

It's now 10 straight months of employment gains. And the SF Bay Area just added 5,100 jobs in August. Those employment gains extend great streak.

The Bay Area's nine-county region (Association Of Bay Area Governments) said new employment exceeded the 4.1 M mark for the first time. Job growth is going on for a straight 10 consecutive months. What's good for central Bay Area is good for Solano County growth.

Choose To Telecommute From Home Or Drive To Jobs Outside Solano County?

Who is on the forefront for the revolution in working?

Goal is to measure output and not focus on the time worked.

Solano employees prefer to work remotely at home or a nearby shared office so they're not stuck at home. Let your computer become a videoconferencing center.

Develop methods of collaborating by letting distant teammates work together.

Now geography is less important, be it Silicon Valley, San Francisco or reasonably priced Fairfield - Vacaville. This applies if the entrepreneur is at times, always-on, constantly connected during business hours.

Fairfield Co-Working ™ predicts shared office space rentals near one's home is a way to work autonomously but avoid being stuck at home with distractions and being all alone.

Still workers don't like commuting from say Fairfield - Vacaville so seek flexibility from smart companies.  A gallup 2016b report appears to say 43% of U.S. employees worked remotely, at least some of the time. Telecommuting is up from 2012 when it was only 39%. Perhaps there are more Solano County telecommuters than US averages as Solano and nearby San Francisco are often ahead of the business curve.

Will You Choose To Telecommute From Home Or Drive To Higher Paying Jobs Outside Solano County In Say Contra Costa or even San Francisco?

Solano Startup Cheat-Sheet To Get Started. Can You Avoid Paying $800 Year CA Corp Reg Fee?

Can you just register your company name to save costs, then incorporate later? Select a type of entity like sole proprietor (non incorporated) or an LLC or C type corporation. Pick your state of maybe Delaware. Pick some number of shares for your new company (don't stress).  How will the shares be divided between your fellow Solano investors?

Many early Solano startups don't know that the annual California state franchise tax is a minimum of $800/year regardless of your profits.  So filing as a sole proprietor can make sense.

You may want to innovate, and get creative.  But company formation might be plain-vanilla as possible. Solano Business News and links doesn't give advice. They may have interesting opinions you don't want to miss.

Many files their corporation papers online (though we aren't legally advising you use Or hire a Solano attorney in Fairfield. Entrepreneurs can just walk into the 80 suite office building and ask the receptionist for any one of the many Fairfield lawyers at 1652 West Texas St in Fairfield.

Foreigners Buying Solano County Commercial Real Estate: Office Buildings & Warehouse Spaces

Solano County Commercial Real Estate Gets Foreigners Interest

Solano Real Estate can be a safe-haven for foreign investors.

Foreigners are spending lots also on US technology companies. Solano Real Estate can within California’s large urban centers. Growth in the Northern California industrial and office building sector has spurred foreign investors to purchase commercial properties located along major transportation routes. Highway 80 is a great example. Buyers like office building sales within a mile or more from highway 80.  In 2015, Bakersfield, California on I-80 was identified as very desirable location in the nation for foreign buyers. However Solano Real Estate is closer to a major city (San Francisco), and is often preferred to dry and hot Bakersfield.

There Can Be A Big Future With Solano Commercial Real Estate Attracting Foreign Investment & Employers For Better Paying Jobs In Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun and Vallejo.

Will Solano Companies Leave California If Commercial Real Estate Taxes Jump Up?

Solano Real Estate Owning Employers Might Depart From California & Move To Texas If Commercial Real Estate Taxes Increase.

If commercial property taxes increase, will California companies stop hiring, investing?
The two largest property taxpayers also employ close to 34,000 people

Residential real estate owners wanting to keep their taxes down might be asking business owners to pay more taxes on their Solano commercial real estate. This is based on when California voters approved Proposition 13.

In 2014, prop 13 was called a sacred thing by former Governor Jerry Brown.

Solano commercial real estate owners in Fairfield, Vacaville, Vallejo and other cities charge tenant rents. The real estate rents cover real estate property taxes collected by the Solano Tax Assessor’s office. Those new potential increases will in one way or the other be absorbed by the tenant or passed on to their Solano customers. Then prices will go up, resulting in higher costs for Solano consumers say Solano Business News.

In Conclusion: Prices Consumers Pay Will Increase. And It's Likely Some Solano Companies Will Leave California If Commercial Real Estate Taxes Increase.

Attacking Solano For Profit Colleges. Big Student Debts Lining College Pockets.

Whats The Future Of Attacking Solano For Profit Colleges?

California’s Democratic-controlled legislature might pull the nation’s toughest restrictions on for-profit colleges. Will they be shut down?

Trump backed away from policing quality. Solano County’s for profit get public money. They are often plagued by fraud and poor outcomes. 

For-profit colleges, vocational schools and online education companies paid $800,000 into lobbying legislators in the first six months of 2019. 

Assemblyman David Chiu said, “The experience we’ve had moving ….. forward highlights the role of money and ….. influence in state capitols around the country”.

Other bills attack profit schools which might rely on Solano County government help. Some Solano for profit colleges are raking in excessive amounts of profits. Meanwhile the Solano college students are burdened with debt.  

Bills are designed to root out fraud and abuse in the Solano industry. That debt in effect lines the college’s profits, says Solano Business News.
