Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz are excited about the opening Schwartz & Sandy’s. So far, they’re the only ones who feel that way. In 2018, they opened their first bar TomTom with Lisa Vanderpump. Now, they want to do things their own way. The Toms are moving forward with their plans to open their next bar, which is expected to open in late 2021 or early 2022.
However, they may find that it’s harder than they expected. Sandoval and Schwartz no longer have Vanderpump to hold their hand. Instead, they have a business partner who is not here for their tomfoolery. Is Schwartz & Sandy’s doomed to fail before it launches?
Why they should team up with Ariana Madix and Katie Maloney
In the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules, Katie Maloney follows Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz to their business meeting. In his confessional, Sandoval joked that it was “take your wife to work day.” He only agreed to have Katie tag along as long as she didn’t butt into their meeting. Sandoval thinks Katie doesn’t know as much about business as he does.
The guys took psychedelics so they could get to the core of their mission statement. But it’s a lot of “word salad.” Even Katie told them that they need to simplify their mission statement. Viewers noticed that she knows a lot more about business than the guys do.
Fans have already expressed their opinion on the name of their new establishment. Some took to Twitter to share their disgust. Others turned to Reddit to have a deep discussion about it. One fan suggested that Sandoval and Schwartz should team up with Katie and Ariana Madix. It could give the joint some much-needed “couples vibes.”
Tom Sandoval previously explained the reason why they stuck with the name Schwartz & Sandy’s. They wanted to make it personal so that their patrons could get to know them. It’s also a place where their fans and followers will get to know them more. The men want this new bar to reflect their personality.
Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz’s new bar could fail
Fans have a feeling that their new venture may fail before launch. For one, Tom Schwartz shared his financial struggles in the new episode. Tom Sandoval thankfully had the help of his parents. As for Schwartz, he doesn’t really have anyone else to rely upon. He’s struggling to forfeit his share of the costs.
Most Pump Rules fans don’t think Sandoval and Schwartz’s new bar will catch on with the general public. But they also don’t think a joint bar with Katie and Ariana would be just as successful. It may not work because of how niche it is. The average person who doesn’t watch the Bravo show may not understand the premise of this bar.
Some also noted that Katie and Schwartz would just fight all the time. It would just ruin the “couples vibes” they created. Katie and Sandoval may also butt heads. Maybe Sandoval and Schwartz will team up with their wives in the future. Once, Sandoval takes other women seriously.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Schwartz and Sandy’s will be successful? Or, do you think it will fail? Sound off below in the comments.
