Why did you start this business or service?
As a teenager, Bill tired of eating macaroni and cheese or spaghetti out of a can.
He began to experiment with making bagel sandwiches, adding cream cheese, ham, melted cheese and
other special seasonings. "Wow", he thought. "This is fantastic!" Bill's passion for
baking cookies and sharing his secret bagel sandwich recipe with his family and
friends spurred an interest in owning his own business at an early age.
After working for and managing a variety of restaurant settings, Bill decided to
pursue a business degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, majoring in
accounting. After graduation, he worked for an accounting firm for six months
before economy-related factors caused him to be laid off. With accounting
opportunities being limited, Bill decided to "bite the bullet" and open his own
business. The opportunity in Cottage Grove presented itself in the Cottage Grove
Marketplace, an ideal facility located near Piggly Wiggly, Movie Magic, and Door
