Topher’s Rock N’ Roll Grill celebrated a grand re-opening with a new co-owner and revised menu on Saturday, November 6th. Topher’s is proud to welcome John McCarter as co-owner, who brings with him a new and fresh approach to preparing favorite Topher’s menu items.
Enjoy hand-dipped milkshakes, hand-rolled cheese sticks, and hand-cut french fries as “opening acts.” New items include throwback favorites such as fried dill pickles, banana splits and strawberry shortcake desserts. The new menu focuses on everything being homemade, hand-breaded and hand-cut.
“I am thrilled to be working alongside Chris McDonald [owner] as co-owner of Topher’s,” McCarter said, “I am passionate about what I do – from ensuring the satisfaction of customers to developing the professional skills of our employees. Many times Topher’s may be someone’s first employment opportunity, and it’s exciting to watch people learn and grow as we teach them valuable skills such as customer service, business ethics and getting a job done right.”
An exciting lineup of activity was scheduled for Saturday’s grand re-opening event and included activities for children, live music by What Willis Was Talkin’ About and Natalie Kirk & Company, a community pep rally, free food and refreshments and more. Saturday’s event was free to the public and open for anyone to attend. Complementing the commitment to serving the community through the Topher’s for Teacher’s program, Topher’s will be giving 10% of sales from Saturday’s event to the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society.
