1. Bran new ice machine and refrigerator I was going to purchase from http://www.foodservicewarehouse.com/equipment/commercial-refrigerat...
I ended up buying most everything used so I was able to cut corners and save a ton. I bought a great commercial fridge from Ebay and used a company UShip.com to get it shipped.
4. Cups: I use cups from Sam's Club : Dixie's perfect touch cups. No need for sleeves and they are the best price that I could find. About .12 per cup with lid.
5. Chalkboard: Great idea about the chalkboard Dave.
