September will mark Buffalo West Restaurant's second year in business. In some ways this is a huge milestone because we have seen dozens of restaurants start and fail in this same time period and in other ways, it is just the beginning for our business. There is no other way to say this - our first year in business was a struggle. If you are in business, you know how critical it is to have right people. Chris Piekarski, our wonderful General Manager, has put together a fantstic staff that delivers consistently great food, great service, and an overall great dining experience.
Several months ago, Lynette Spence was in for lunch and, while she and I were talking, she asked if we would be interested in joining the Benbrook Area Chamber of Commerce. I said we had given it some thought but we were not sure. Lynette made an appointment to come back and tell us about the benefits of joining. After she us all about the history of Benbrook, the lake, the families, the businesses, the community, the city council and the chamber we were convinced that this was a great match for us and that we needed more than anything else, to join the Benbrook Area Chamber of Commerce.
Lynette, of course, was right. Joing the BACC has been a great blessing for us. They welcomed us with open arms and treated us like family. The members have adopted our restaurant as a favorite place to meet and eat and we could not be more pleased.
We truly appreciate the Benbrook Area Chamber of Commerce and look forward to a wonderful long term relationship with them and with the Benbrook community as a whole.
Owner, Buffalo West
