    -Bob Plenty will be in charge of feeding the workers of the San Marcos Hotel, but also the guests of the temporary hotel.  He will have two dining rooms.  One will hold 40 people for the hotel guests, and the other 36 workers.  The two separate rooms will allow workers to eat without having to change.

    He believes in serving food just as good to the workers as the guests.  He serves an average of 106 people a day.  (Chandler Arizonan 4/4/1913)

    -The dining room is the first place to be experimenting with making Chandler a flyless burg.  It is using George Hageman's concoction to rid the place of flies, and it seems to be working.  It is a mixture of beer, milk, and poison in a shallow pan with blotting paper.  (Chandler Arizonan 7/25/1913)

    -The place is being changed so it can accomadate up to 48 people.  It is being taxed at the size it is now.  Last Sunday, it was so busy that people had to wait for an open table.

    The building will be moved next to the old offices of the Chandler Improvement Company.

    Mr. Plenty promises the same standard in service and meals and lower prices than Phoenix.  (Chandler Arizonan 7/25/1913)

    -One of the chefs is Cicero Sims, who is in charge of frying chickens.  (Chandler Arizonan 8/8/1913)
