Owner and founder Charlie Downs says the Florissant restaurant is “a culmination of all the hard work and dedication that each of these women has put into our business for nearly a decade.” 

A portion of the proceeds from opening day will be donated to ‘Hogs for the Cause,’ a non-profit that works to fight pediatric brain cancer and support families that are receiving ongoing cancer treatment.
