Are you from the area originally? TS: I was born in Manila, Arkansas, and moved to Mt. Pleasant when I was 7. I graduated from Wando and I am working on my degree in business management. I have three sisters and two brothers, which I like, because I am one of the oldest. So, when I want something done I can ask one of my younger siblings to do it. Seriously though, it is great to have a big family, especially during the holidays.

What do you enjoy about working at Jack’s? TS: Every year we participate in the ``Christmas parade. We always do something crazy and have a good time.

What do you enjoy about Jack’s customers? TS:We have a lot of regulars, and they are all fun in their own way. One of our customers always calls ahead. It takes just 10 minutes for takeout. So, when he hangs up, he say, “I will see you in 10 minutes.” He always takes an hour. So, we have learned to not make his order until he shows up.

I put it on everything; it is so good with ham and turkey. Most times when people come in they buy it by the case because it is a great present.
