Bobbie Plummer, Owner of Fishes-N-Loaves Cafe
How long have you been in business?
Our two year anniversary will be on June 30, 2016.
Why did you choose Anadarko?
When I decided to open up the restaurant, I wanted to be able to offer a home cooking cafe with meals that you might find at momma’s house on a Sunday.
In your words describe your business:
We offer home cooking sit down meals. We provide a place for people to enjoy fellowship and a Christian atmosphere.
What is your biggest challenge as a business owner?
For us it is finding employees, it can be difficult to find good people who want to work.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Getting to know the people better. I know people from the community from growing up here but at the cafe, I get a chance to talk to them more one-on-one.
If you had a magic wand to fix anything in your business or the city what would you do?
I would expand the restaurant and hire more people from Anadarko who wanted to work with a good job.
What has been the best day of running your business?
Our customers keep me coming back because it is the people and relationships we have built that are special. Each day is brand new with different challenges and that can be exciting.
Why is it important to join the Anadarko Chamber?
Being a part of the Chamber helps promote Anadarko and the organization creates a positive atmosphere. The Chamber promotes the good in our town.
Anything you would like to share with our audience?
We want to thank everyone who has been in the cafe to support our business. Fishes-N-Loaves Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. They are located at 201 W. Main St in Anadarko. Call 405-247-8889 for more information.
