2 restaurants we'd like to patronize

A couple of local human interest stories.

The first, about a bakery/sandwich shop called Kneaders (742 Fort Union Boulevard in Midvale), is from personal knowledge. A while back, a woman in her 70s who had just lost her husband was anxious to find something to keep herself busy. She approached Kneaders about a job opening to make sandwiches, but her skill set was not ideal for that task. No problem, management said: "We'll find you a job." And they did, cutting vegetables and such. Next time we're in Midvale, we feel a hankerin' for some baked goods...



The second is from a July 2, 2007, Trib article about Jason Russell, an employee at this Burger King in Farmington (1252 N Highway 89).


Customers enjoy the personable Jason, who is developmentally challenged, and who is gregarious and caring. On rare occasions, customers take offense at Jason's playfulness, such as a group of duck hunters who did not like it when he quacked at them. Co-owner Tom Long declared, however, that "Anybody that has got a problem with Jason is not a customer we want to have." OK, BK!

We get the breakfast croissant and a smoothie from that Kneaders nearly every weekend...they're awesome. Two thumbs up.

It's also worth going to Kneaders for what is arguably the world's best tuna sandwich.

mmm...croissant... I know my first stop of the day. I'll have to bypass the tuna (vegetarian), but I'm glad to hear that they offer not only compassion but yummy stuff, too.
