Leave a Suggestion for 'Just Turkey'

Now is your chance to take some ownership within your local business community.

Have you ever been to a local busiess and thought to yourself, “This would be so much better if only …”

Well now’s your chance to speak up.

Welcome to the Patch Suggestion Box, a new feature in which we highlight a specific local business and our readers offer positive, constructive feedback to help them improve. Once suggestions are collected, we’ll be running an “Owner’s Response” piece to address your concerns. 

This week’s focus business is Just Turkey at 17947 Halsted Street. Longtime Homewood resident and owner Brian Latman opened the restaurant in April of 2011. According to him, customers rave about their products and service, but lately, business has been painfully slow.

Sarah, Thank you for your comment. I have been asking corporate for nutritional info on the products. Unfortunately, it is not in there budget as of yet. Once we have 30 stores it will be mandated. I apologize for not having this info. I know it would attract more business. I briefly looked into the price and I was astounded how much it cost to have someone do it for you.

Kareesa, I thank you for your comment. We have a mini taco for $1 and have created $5 specials during lunch...ie. polish, fry and drink, link, fry and drink, mini tip, salad. If you divide the polish, fry and drink it is $1.66 each..same for link, fry and drink. Unfortunately, turkey cost more and the healthier it is the more it is. I am sorry but for now we have those specials. Thanks. Feel free to come in for a free mini taco. Just tell them Brian sent you. :) Thanks again
