Growth Report 2020

Sweet Melissa’s Savors 35% Increase in Sales

BOARDMAN — 2019 proved to be a year of strong growth for Sweet Melissa’s Good Eats as sales grew 35%, reports Melissa Poland, owner and operator. 

“We attribute this to more catering business, ChowNow internet ordering service and the support of our growing customer base,” she says.  

The menu is simple — wraps, salads, daily sliders and deli items – and Sweet Melissa’s prepares, cooks and constructs all fresh food items daily.  

The restaurant employs 22, Poland says, and schedules five- and six-hour shifts with 12 employees present to accommodate the daily business volume.

Under consideration are plans to add a second location later this year, Poland says.
