Best Family Restaurant:
John’s Pizzeria and
American Bistro
What started in 1955 by a little Italian couple from Naples, Italy has sewn
itself into the community fabric as
“John’s Pizzeria and American Bistro”
sixty-one years later as a beacon for a
feeling of ‘home,’ familiarity and family.
“Winning ‘Best Family Restaurant’
is just as much a testament to the
people who eat here and the families
who support us as it is the staff and
their families who keep us moving
along,” says owner-operator Thomas
Welch.
“We embrace what John & Mary
began, while merging those traditions
with new trends and ever changing flavors.”
John’s still prides themselves with
everything from hand-made pizza,
stromboli, and their famous breadsticks
to other staples like hand battered fish
and chips, hand cut steak and traditional meat sauce while continuing to
explore fresh ideas to improve dining

Michelle Welch.

experience and adding locally made
items when the opportunity arises.
Kids love when we show them how
to make pizzas and they can add their
own ingredients.
Moving into the future, we have no
desire to stray from the old family recipes and family atmosphere. Adding
‘half-off pizza nights’ and hosting numerous fundraisers for local teams and
group functions is still part of the equation.

From left, Molly, Terri, Fay and Pam.

Best Dry Cleaner: Flo’s Place
Flo’s may be new to the area, but
not to the business. Florence Haynes
has been a seamstress in the area for
over 30 years.
This talent was passed on to her
daughter Terri. “Besides alterations, we
partner with Champs dry cleaning plant
for a superior job,” said Terri Burnett,

owner of Flo’s Place. “We dry clean
clothing, household items as well as
suede/leather and also clean UGG boots.
The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.”
She adds that Flo’s Place also rents tuxedos, offers bridal gown preservation
and will soon expand to add Essential
Body Wear, a custom fit line of bras.

We are all so proud to make a difference in the life of a child! It is a pleasure going to work every day and seeing so many smiling faces. I am very

“We would like to thank The Citizen

“We have a greeting on the wall
that states, ‘May all who enter as
guests, leave as friends,’” said Cathy
Moran.
“What makes us the best I think is
the character of the house. Customers are expecting something unique
before they enter the front door. They
can marvel at the centennial home
built by the founder Amos Orton in
1859. Then from there they can look
at generations of family treasures
being passed on to you, along with
various like-new items at a fraction
of the retail cost. Customers come
from near and far—we are a destination spot for friends and family visiting nearby. One customer came
from Ohio to purchase a cuckoo clock
that she saw on my website,” said
Cathy.

“We are very happy to be named best

Dorman of JD & Son Sealcoating. “For
24 years, our business has continued to
grow, thanks in part to hard work, but
also honesty, integrity and a strong, loyal
customer base that supports small business. I am not only honored for this recognition, but also am proud to be a part

“We’ve been a part of this community for more than two decades and
raised my family here.When you’re dedi-

“We are a family of perfectionists who
stress quality in both product and work.
We are firm believers in the importance
of hand brush application rather than
spraying. Safety and appearance are
key elements in any business or home.
Properties are large investments and
properly maintained asphalt is vital to
not only the overall look, but also value.”

“Austin Brick Pavers LLC has been

flagstone, engineered wall systems, boulders and more. We are an authorized
Unilock Contractor and have maintained
that status for several years.

“We have invested thousands of dollars into heavy duty machinery that increases production and reduces costs,” he
added. “It also increases our capabilities
so that no matter the scale of the project,
we can offer the right solution. We will
continue to purchase materials locally to
sustain our growing community. We also

At Lucy’s we are not your typical pet
supplies and feed store. “We are here to
serve our community, working with one
pet, one person at a time,” said owner
Angela Grogan. From hamsters to
horses, and wild birds too. At Lucy’s,
it’s all about the conversation we have
with each person that comes in the door.
We take the time to ask questions and get
to know you. That’s the fun of being a
small, independent, family- run business.
In the near future, Lucy’s will be ex-

panding our line of naturopathic products
by bringing in EQUIOPATHICS, Homeopathic remedies for horses. We have already brought in HomeoPet, a fabulous line
of Homeopathic remedies for dogs, cats,
birds and small animals. These are easy to
give and have great results. In the Wild
Bird and Outdoor Area, we are always
changing things up such as Flags, Kinetic
Spinners, Bird feeders and solar mobiles!
So, grab your animal friends and stop on
in!
Thanks again for voting us the Best of

is improving and the exercise and nutrition selections are appropriate.”
