Bonnie Matthew and Bob Hufgard want people to know their Food for Thought catering business will soon have a higher profile. That’s part of their rationale for being part of the Mentor Chamber of Commerce’s Restaurant Showcase, set for April 9 at the Mentor Civic Arena.
“In September, when the Plaza Boulevard extension is complete, we’ll be one building away from the corner,“ said Matthew. The long-awaited extension will give motorists another north-south access from Mentor Avenue to Tyler Boulevard between routes 306 and 615 in Mentor. “
We may then be able to dabble in a quasi-retail location, allowing people to stop in and pick up a healthy prepared meal on their way home from work,” said Hufgard, her partner. “We’re pretty excited about it.”
They’ve been in business 23 years at 7574 St. Clair Ave. in Mentor but are so hidden away among streets off Tyler Boulevard that first-time customers often call Food for Thought a “hidden gem.” Food for Thought will bring some dishes favored by their regulars — mostly corporate customers.
