What’s your favorite part about the community your business is in & why?
We have been part of this community since 1985, so to come back is a dream come true. The new residents of the neighborhood love us.
Why is it important to you and your business that people #SpendLikeItMatters?
It’s the only way for small businesses to survive. We don’t have the funding help or know the right resources to take our company to the next level! So, every customer dollar counts in a small business. It definitely can make us or break us.
As a business owner, what’s the strangest or craziest idea you’ve ever tried?
Well honestly, [the] crazy idea is Catfish Corner and Ezell’s opening a location together. Louis is a mentor of mine, and he keeps bringing it up!
What’s something your customers may not know about you or your business?
That we plan on opening more locations. It’s all about having the right team – teamwork makes the dream work.
