Owners Charlie Hammerslough and Debby Spertus.

Charlie began his career as a college professor at the University of Michigan, followed by many years in the marketing industry in Chicago. When his daughter was in high school, he served as chairman of the Local School Council.

Debby taught English when she was in graduate school. She spent many years as a small business owner and has always been active in her community and her children’s schools.
