Testimonials from Our Customers
"The Back of the Yards needs more diversiﬁed food choices and having a pancake house will be another option. The pancake house will also keep the investment in the community. Currently, if residents want other food options they travel outside the community. A pancake house will also bring needed outside money coming into the community."
"This business will function as a place where people gather for nourishment. More importantly, the pancake restaurant will serve as our community hub that continues to foster the growth of leadership among the community, and provide a sense of connection and safety that multigenerational community residents will call their own."
"The idea of this business is more than about providing another restaurant to the Back of the Yards. The larger vision is to model investment in the community, and to continue the work of building a collaborative effort to address issues that most impact the Back of the Yards. Employment disparities, domestic and neighborhood violence, as well as housing and educational equity will continue to be at the forefront of the mission of this business."
"My fondest memory was a walk into the wilderness when we went scavenging for wild berries that we could use to make Tom’s famous pancakes. Being from the city and being in the wilderness, I had never done that before. Remembering that experience, I am so happy now to learn that Tom’s pancake house will soon be serving pancakes, and not just because of a passion for pancakes, but because of the wisdom and the commitment to the people of this community that will be shared."
