Theo's Restaurant
632 Wheeling Ave.
Cambridge, OH 43725
About Theo's Restaurant: The restaurant was established in 1931 at its present location by my father-in-law, Gust Granitsas. I became a partner in 1963 and sole owner in 1971. It originally was named "Coney Island Lunch" and the name was changed to Theo's Restaurant in 1980 to reflect its development into a full scale restaurant. We feature an eclectic menu and are well known for our homemade pies. We are the premier locally owned independent restaurant in the county and a favorite meeting place of the local populace. After burning down and rebuilding the restaurant in 1985 we expanded into catering both on premise and off. We have become the prime caterer in South Eastern Ohio. My sons have taken over the restaurant and have opened up another eatery in Cambridge called "The Forum." Cambridge, Ohio, is located at the intersection of I-77 and I-70. We're right smack in the middle of downtown and if you're in the area, please drop in and say "Hello."

Bill Fokas '82 and Chris Fokas '84
Martha's Exchange Restaurant and Brewing Co.
185 Main St.
Nashua, NH 03060
About Martha's Exchange Restaurant and Brewing Co.: Martha's Sweet Shoppe was founded in 1932 by the great aunt of the current owners. In 1944, James Fokas, fresh out of the war, began running his sister's candy shop. He expanded it to include a luncheonette. Between the years of 1984 and 1985, their two sons, Chris '85 and Bill Fokas '82, graduated from UNH. They began to take over and run the family business. In 1987 they expanded yet again to include a restaurant and bar.

Martha's Exchange reopened in December of 1989, and with approximately 150 seats, it started with a bang. By 1993, Martha's was so busy that it needed more seats to accommodate its customers. Another lease ending, Martha's took this opportunity to expand yet again. While expanding the restaurant by another 90 seats, Martha's also made a decision to include a microbrewery; a phenomenon that was just in its infancy. If you look above the brewery tanks, you may also notice a mural painted on the wall. The artist is Steve Barton, who currently has works hanging in the homes of Dolly Parton, Sylvester Stallone, and the White House.

Susan Gallahue Allison '83
Thoreau Foods
51 Cortland Lane
Boxborough, MA 01719
About Thoreau Foods: Thoreau Foods was started by Susan Gallahue Allison '83 and Peter Allison in 2003 with the goal to make the most delicious and nutritious food possible that everybody could enjoy. Having grown up in the grocery business (Gallahue's Supermarkets), Susan saw the evolution of food go from fresh wholesome ingredients to those that were more often than not loaded with refined sugars, trans fat and preservatives. Susan's enthusiasm for and knowledge of natural foods and exercise used to improve one's health and stamina left her asking for more from the food industry. On a backcountry excursion climbing Sierra Nevada Peak 13,337 a few years back, we had plenty of hours to discuss what would be our perfect breakfast. As athletes who like to be outdoors for hours at a time, we knew we needed to develop something that would taste great and provide us with sustained energy. That's when our creativity for blending exotic ingredients and flavors combined with our knowledge of nutrition to create Thoreau Foods and our first product, delicious nutrition packed Muesli. Way more than granola, our USDA Certified Organic Muesli provides a delicious and flavorful complete breakfast with over 2000 mgs of omega 3's, 12 grams of fiber, 9 grams of protein, plentiful antioxidants and a low glycemic index. ... And let's give credit where credit is due. Mom always said, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day". Well, we listened.

Fogarty's Restaurant
471 Main St.
South Berwick, ME 03908
About Fogarty's Restaurant: Fogarty's has been a staple of the South Berwick and Rollinsford, N.H., community, bursting belt buckles and picking up after dropped ice cream cones since 1960. Owner Larry Fogarty '83, the grandson of the original owners, doesn't remember the exact date the restaurant opened, but it doesn't matter. "If you get an order of onion rings today," he says, "it's not gonna taste any different from it did in 1970." The reason is because the recipes for the core menu items haven't changed despite the changes to the restaurant over the years.

It is our goal to bring you the highest quality service by providing superior products in a friendly, clean environment. You can be certain to find the same level of quality and care in our handcrafted sandwiches, soups, and salads as you have come to know with our breads, cakes, and pastries. Because the details make the difference, our meats are roasted and sliced right here in our own kitchen. You can live a healthier life without the sodium, nitrites and preservatives found in that other "deli" meat. We also make the spreads that dress our sandwiches, and of course we bake all of our bread everyday. Spend some time with us and you will see, it all tastes better when it's fresh.
