The free meals that were given out on Christmas Day is an annual event that continues in the welcoming spirit of Nana’s namesake Myrtle Henderson, according restaurant co-owner Todd Minor.

“My great grandmother, Nana, used her food to bring people together, teach life lessons and welcomed everyone,” Minor said. “Service was in my great-grandma’s DNA. She made sure everyone always had a full belly whether they were going to work, church or school. We do the same, ensuring our customers get exceptional service, even while on the go with our takeout meals.”
