Why did you decide to start this type of business?  The community didn’t have a store like this, and I felt it would be a benefit to have one. 

What accomplishments are you most proud of as the owner of this business? We received the Golden Spatula Award in 2015. This is given to establishments with 100 A rating. Similar to Michelin stars, this rating is given to restaurants for excellence in cuisine, sanitation and customer satisfaction. We have customers come from all around and when passing through from Charleston for example they will stop because of the quality of our food. 

What sets you apart from other businesses that people might support?  Our food is homemade and differs from fast food judging by the comments we hear.  Our employees are friendly and the environment is clean and inviting.

Do you have any other info you want to share?  We are open Monday through Friday 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday 10 am to 3 pm.  Our phone # is 803-926-7051.
