SAFE SHIP

A new shipping business has moved in across from City Hall. Safe Ship, owned by Dave and Edy Levey, offers a full suite of shipping services.

"We're providing a full service of packing and shipping," Dave Levey said. "We utilize Fed Ex, U.S. Postal Service, UPS and DHL, and post office boxes."

The back wall of the new location is actually a giant door. The former mayor says he wants to start running electric delivery carts out of the business.

"We're going green baby, we're thinking green," he said.

PIN AND BOBALICIOUS

Neda and Hamid Khorrami opened a new boba hangout 11 weeks ago, and they plan to open a sports grill this summer.

Boba-lish-es at 25108 Marguerite Parkway near La Paz Road was actually the idea of the owners' two children, who attend and .

"I was driving up to Irvine every single night for them to get boba," Neda Khorrami said.

So she moved the boba closer to home and hired her children and 11 others to help run the place. Things are off to a good start, she said: "In 11 weeks, it’s like the business has been around for five years. So I’m very proud."

The Khorramis are also opening Pin inside the Gateway Center next to on the corner of Alicia and Jeronimo.

Neda said Pin has been ready to open for three weeks, but the landlord must approve the menu first. She said the sports bar and grill will be open "by July 1 for sure."

The owners plan to donate part of the proceeds from each business to local schools.

Very confusing as you mention a sports bar going into the Gateway Center and then show a picture of a market. I'm guessing these are two different businesses??

Isn't the place where pin is going also where Pho King Way is supposed to re-open? Also, what is up with the landlord needing to approve menus? Perhaps that is why so many establishments die in there.

Yes Amanda, two separate businesses. My mistake. I'll have a full story up about the market once the owners contact me.
Dan Avery June 26, 2012 at 05:29 PM
And all those businesses are going to need a one web site that will fit every device people are using these days. Side Six may be just what the doctor ordered for that!

No Pho King Way?
Peter Schelden (Editor) June 28, 2012 at 05:07 PM
Hi Antoine, last time I talked to Pho King Way's owner, he said the store would re-open in August. Did you hear about the fire there? http://missionviejo.patch.com/articles/bad-rice-cooker-scorched-pho-king-way

I stopped by Boba-lish-es yesterday and brought home a Mocha Latte for Victoria and me. It was great! Give them a try.
