The Olive Branch Cafe Food is best described as Cajun/Italian, more or less. I mean we have basically standard Italian dishes like pizzas, lasagnas, a bunch of different salads, but everything has a little bit of Cajun flavor to it. We have a pasta jambalaya on the menu that’s really popular. One of our most popular dishes is our Caesar salad. We make our Caesar dressing in-house. We go through about 20 gallons a week of Caesar dressing. Also the chef specials we run from time to time – we’ll pop up on the special board, and you never know what you’re going to get. Everybody in the kitchen kind of pitches in and we come up with some different ideas, but there’s always something new to try.
We also offer catering to local businesses and local community organizations and in your home, come see us, check out our menu online, and we’re happy to help you any way we can. And for catering needs keep us in mind as well. My slogan that I adopted a few years back is West Bank, born, raised, proud, and that sums up my attitude about my community. I’m just happy to be a part of it. I’m very proud of what we have going here on the West Bank, and I’m always looking for opportunity to do things to make the West Bank stronger and better and help folks in our community.
When I first opened up 27 years ago, internet connectivity at a business wasn’t even a thing. Now, I can’t imagine doing business without the internet, and it’s become something that we rely on. We need it not only to accept orders through online ordering or Uber, but we also have to transact electronically. Most payments now come via electronic payments, so it’s an internet-based transaction. Almost every transaction involves some level of internet connectivity – and I heard about Uniti when I was having such difficulty with my previous provider. Outages causing stress and anxiety. It was costing me literally thousands of dollars on a monthly basis because I was losing sales because of outages.
And a friend of mine mentioned Uniti, and I was able to talk to Carl. And at that time, the fiber product that we needed was a little further away. But after a few months, Carl called me and said, Hey, rusty, I have fiber that’s closer to you. I can bring you service a lot more affordably. Are you interested? And I said, definitely I am. Carl walked me through the process of what was going to happen when the installers came. They were going to bring the fiber into the property or onto the property and then run it into the building. And the installers showed up at the time they said they were going to show up at, they did the work – they did it fast and efficiently. I had no interruption of service. My business was literally seamless, and that was a big deal to me.
After a few months of having Uniti Fiber, the signal and the strength was strong and dependable. I realized that I no longer needed a cellular backup system, so I was able to eliminate the backup system. My faith and confidence in Uniti Fiber has grown tremendously over the last year. And I’m happy to say that I’ve had no outages, no interruption of service. And with my previous internet provider, I could barely go a month without having some type of interruption, whether it was just minutes or hours, I didn’t realize how stressful it was. A constant threat of losing internet at my business. It takes a toll. There’s always that level of anxiety. Well, that has also gone, and it’s a great feeling to be able to answer the phone and not have a panicked employee on the other end telling you that your internet service is down and your customers are unhappy and everything is having to stop. With Uniti Fiber installed in my business, my internet connection is solid and dependable, and I have a peace of mind, and my employees now have a peace of mind. And that’s just one less thing that we have to think about on a regular basis. So if you have a business and you’re depending on internet connectivity, I highly recommend Uniti Fiber.
