Nature of Business: Restaurant
Principle owner/manager: Mary Barraclough, John and Christina Geary
Year Founded: We have been open since Feb. 10, 2012
One thing I wish everyone knew about your business: That we are the best kept secret in Newsoms. Everyone loves our steak, seafood and home style cooking. Daily lunch specials serving our new wraps.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Our friendliness, we care about our customers and treat everyone like good friends.
The key to a successful business is: You need to enjoy what you do and have the passion to do everything that needs to be done to make it successful.
Advice for all: Life is too short. Enjoy it while you can. Love one another. I lost best friend Daniel Barraclough (husband) two months ago. John and Christina lost their best friend, advisor, and business partner.
We all miss him very much and I want to thank everyone for their prayers, cards and friendship through this difficult time. Dan would have wanted the restaurant to go on, and we will continue to be there for everyone in Dan’s memory. God bless you all.
