He said business has been good at the Dayton location.

“The year had been great, our catering is really starting to pick up,” he said in response to questions sent via text message. “I feel like I have learned more this year than previous years combined. What I have learned is employee and customer relations are a really important thing. Friendly employees, great food, accuracy and timeliness of an order are what can separate you from the rest of the competition.”
