I arrived safely in New York to visit my grandma today. The driver that took me to the hotel discussed some of the locally owned companies still around the area. Even in a tough economic period, grocery store east coast chain Wegman’s is still family owned. There’s also a restaurant that is known for great food in a small place that has been run by the same owner for 35 years. He hasn’t expanded because the space is part of the restaurant people know today.
