“I made sure that my guys were guaranteed jobs. And I guarantee you the (new owner) wanted them,” Teresa said. “I want all of my people to know that Rick and John will still be there. They have that level of trust in those guys.”

Teresa had a final message for her family’s loyal customers.

“I just want to thank you on behalf of my father-in-law, husband and the whole family," she said. "I want to thank you for all of these years of coming to us. I just want to reach out and touch them, and ease their mind. Give the other company a chance, since my guys are staying there.”
