Why are we selling?  We have put 2 1/2 years of our heart and soul into this place.  And we love it!  We especially love our customers and our employees...both are like family.   

Even though we see the immense potential of booming sales just around the corner, due to age and health concerns it is becoming harder and harder for Chef Papa Lloyd to work the hours that he does.  We feel that if the right buyer were to come along, it would be a good move for us personally to sell now.  

This is the prefect time for a potential buyer to get in.  We've done the hard work of getting the doors open, finding good staff and building a stellar reputation....A new owner could step right in and reap all of the benefits.  Interested?  Come check it out for yourself, we'd love to meet you.
