“Despite the hardships of the pandemic, we will continue to show up for our children. We want them to know that we support them, they are not forgotten and we are relying on them to live out their full potential.” – Tracy Hardy  
Tracy Hardy, along with this wife, Jennifer Gomez Hardy, Esq., acquired Lou & Choo’s on Halloween of 2015 from its original owners, Louis Crump and Charles Franklin, who opened the business in 1982. The two prioritize investing in their community through giving out turkeys, toys, and hosting several fundraising events. They also were involved in supplying PPE to the frontline workers and community businesses.
The New Lou & Choo’s Lounge is open Tuesday-Sunday with various activities from open mic night to Sunday football. Learn more by visiting http://thelouandchoos.com
