@PizzaGuy415 Where is this hallowed place to be? It sounds awesome.

Tips will be shared with all staff, as I believe in paying everyone a decent wage and they all can split the tips as a team.

"Please Please Me , whoa yeah, like I please you..."

I will play music of the speakers, maybe Beatlearama radio as I really like that station...any other suggestions?

Just load up an iPod with every Beatles song, solo songs and all the live bootlegs you can get your hands on, and play them on random. Alternatively, ditch the zebra crossing feed and show the 1 Blu-rays on a loop. It'd be way more entertaining.

I don't have an exact location yet, but I will let you know once I do and am getting ready to open.  It takes a lot of effort to open a business and this is one of my dream's in life and probably only get one shot at it...so it's got to be perfect and well planned.

Well, you can't legally just play music without paying the ASCAP/BMI fees.  I haven't decided on which is a better route yet, as I may be able to get Beatlesarama for just a small fee (they handle the fees).  But in the end I may just pay ASCAP so I can do just that.  Same goes for any video, that would be additional fees.

Will there be deliveries? You could name that Take It Away after Paul's song (just an idea).

Wouldn't that be for collection? Maybe Eat At Home for delivery.

Go for a 24/7 section filing it under 'Any Time At All '.

The hottest pizza you can create could be the 'Bad Boy '.

Have food challenges on the menu which would be 'For No One '.

 

And cold pizza (pizza gone cold, not raw pizza) is awesome.

I would make your goal to have no aspect of the pizzeria not Beatles related.

And why not use famous BBers as coasters, I bet Joe, Starr Shine?, meanmistermustard, Ahhh Girl, HMBeatlesfan, Matt Bubsy, Zig, Ron Nasty, William Shears Campbell, The Hippie Chick, and The Hole Got Fixed, among others, would love to be drink coasters.  

My life's ambition was to be a drink coaster! How'd you know?

That's actually not a bad idea... That would result in advertising the Beatles Bible as you'd have to come here to get the joke, and might result in more members!

 

But in all seriousness, this is one pizza shop I'd love to go to!

Just another note as regards Beatles' songs you might be smart mixing in some good covers of Beatles songs into your mix. It's all fine and dandy listening to The Beatles for 9 hours everyday, 5 times a week but you'd eventually get annoyed with listening to them. 

Having some other singers/maybe even Beatles' covers in another language would probably do your staff some good. 

 

For colouring pages, there is an official Yellow Submarine colouring book, and there's scans from vintage colouring books available on Google Images, e.g.

There would need to be more playing than the 217 or whatever it is Beatles songs released between 1962 and 1970. I've heard Beatlesarama before and it does play a nice selection of Beatles, solo, bootlegs and covers - well did, I haven't hear it in a long while.

Absolutely, I totally agree the songs need to have some diversity.  That is why I love Beatlesarama.  They do a great job of mixing it up and playing some obscure songs as well as covers.  I don't think just having all the catalogues and playing random would be as good.  They actually put thought into what they play. Anyone know of similar stations?

I love the idea of making every aspect of the restaurant Beatle Themed.  Have some British flags as well.  Other than pictures/musical instruments, what other things should I consider for decor?

I've secured PennyLanePizza.com for now...as well as some others.  I've got time to consider more, so keep them coming!

I still need menu names for:

Meat lover Pizza (Sausage, Pepperoni, Ham)

Supreme (3 meats above plus veggies)

Also, any quirky menu item I should consider?

For the meat lover's pizza, I like Meat City, though it's Lennon, not Beatles. 

Also, you should definitely consider some Nowhere Manicotti for the menu.

For pictures, I recommend scenery from Liverpool and/or London in the 60s.

Meatlovers or Supreme could be called Ram On . I can imagine ordering it, although its not that specific to meat and veggies.

For the supreme pizza, what about naming it after their most famous song? 

If you are to decide on that, you should probably call it the 'Hey Jude ', 'Let It Be ', 'Love Me Do ' or 'She Loves You '

 

You could do a dessert pizza called 'Strawberry Fields Forever ', which is strawberries on pizza..

Has anybody suggested the name 'Sgt. Pepper ' for the pepperoni pizza yet? My Mother should know thought of that!
