“I vow to give my customers large portions and good service for a reasonable charge,” said Yemc. “I don’t bother my patrons when they’re dining, but I do love to stand in front and ask customers how everything was on their way out. I love to hear their answers and they are usually smiling and carrying a take-home container.”
