How’s business? We just opened on Monday, June 15. Business is doing well.

One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: We’re open for breakfast. We make homemade, made on site, vinegar-based barbecue. We have several unique items on our menu, including our BBQ omelet, steak salad, specialty burgers, homemade desserts and daily specials.

Advice to young entrepreneurs: Pay attention to the daily tasks of previous jobs, and take what you’ve learned and apply them to your future dreams. Never let anyone cast a shadow on your dreams. You never know when they will come true.

Your first job: Bridgette — Shoney’s hostess; David — McDonald’s

Your role model (in business or in life generally): Clarence Swanner, my uncle, worked in the grocery business for many years and built longtime customers with excellent customer service and being personable with his customers.

The key to a successful business is: Good customer service, because without customers, you have no business
