Bob Schroeder, wanting to escape the cold winters of Chicago, bought the business from Tony Lombardo in 1982 in Flagler Beach across from the Flagler Pier. In 1983, Beth Taylor, a senior at Flagler Palm Coast High School, joined the company for a work-study program.
“I had all of my credits to graduate high school and was hired for $3.35 per hour,” Taylor said. “Bob has been an incredible mentor – I am so grateful for his guidance over the years – he’s been like a father to me,” Beth added. In 2013, they purchased the Daytona business of Raymond Phelan. Phelan served Volusia County for 46 years.
