It’s been a little while since I last shared some of my personal thoughts with you all. We have had many exciting things happen within our company over the course of this year! We began a wave of new store openings in our home state of Ohio, and we acquired several new cafes in Tennessee! We just keep growing! These are the things that make me really excited for the future of our company.
