How long have you been in Westport?

For 18 years since we opened the business here.  I live in Milford and I'm originally from Bridgeport.

Where is your favorite place to go in Westport?

We like the beach.

Why Westport?

We came here because of the business.  The previous owners had it for 30 years before us and we really like it here.  It's a good town with nice people.  We get a big range of customers from wealthy movie stars and celebrities to regular working-class people and landscapers.  It's a great town.
