...to the best Contest Essay Entry.
It has been over 31 years since we opened Eats and Sweets and it’s been an amazing adventure...
Now it's time to pass the torch to the next generation...
Reason # 1: Last October 2014 my wife was diagnosed by a horribly invasive stage 3 ovarian cancer. The good news is, after a grueling winter of chemotherapy, she is now in remission. But, the reality with cancer is that it can come back any time/day and it's time to slow down in life. Time for us to enjoy the little things in life and pass on the adventure to someone new. Someone who will love it just as much as us.
Reason #2: We're getting older. 66 years of age snuck up on me faster than I though. Seems like it was just yesterday we were setting up our icecream machines and that was over 10 years ago! They say "time flyes by when your having fun", and boy – we must have had a lot of fun! The truth is, it's time to pass on Eats and Sweets to someone with enough "oomph" to continue the tradition for another 30 years!
Reason #3: This business needs someone like you. It needs new ideas and enthusiasm! My wife has been here for 20 years and I have been here 31 years! We are ready to relax and let someone else take the reigns. We can't wait to see how Eats and Sweets evolves!
