Brent Herzog has dreamed about having his own restaurant since he was 18 years old. He has worked in the industry, soaking up knowledge at each of his jobs along the way. He has managed Disney restaurants, a minor league baseball stadium, the Spaghetti Factory, Panera Bread, Papa Johns, hotel restaurants, and most currently, the food courts at the University of Dayton.
He met his wife Jaime while they both were working at Walt Disney World. After meeting, they traveled the country for a few years, got married, moved back to Florida, had a daughter, Lily, and finally moved to Dayton, where Jaime grew up. Brent was raised as a dairy farmer up in Minnesota so Ohio was new to him.
They still had the dream of opening their own eatery. They came across Jerri’s in Englewood, that specialized in home cooking and it was for sale. They decided this was the opportunity they’d been looking for.
They feel lucky to take over Jerri’s Catering. They will be keeping a lot of their more popular menu items like the hot shots and the pork chop dinner, but they will also be adding their own touches. Brent predicts his one pound burger Home Sweet Home burger will be a big hit. They will be adding some outdoor seating and a pastry bar with a coffee and tea station. Eventually, after COVID, they plan on adding some board games and corn hole.
They are also looking forward to supporting local artists by offering their walls as gallery space.
