Over 5 years ago Shelly Troutman was an accountant working for Payton Wells out of Indianapolis. Then like a lot of people in the last 5 years as the economy worsened Payton Wells shut down and she was out of work.
Moving from accounting to owning a diner seems like quite a stretch but when she found out that Bulldog Corner was up for sale she decided to take a chance and bought the place in July 2007.
You see Shelly like most people who live or work in Lapel had a long history with Bulldog Corner. In fact she used to waitress at Bulldog Corner when she was 18 years old.
For many Bulldog Corner is more than a business it is a tradition. People have been eating at Bulldog Corner for many years, having a nice relaxing meal while catching up with friends and neighbors on a weekly basis.
Running any business during the economic downturn is hard. But through determination and the support of her customers and loyal staff Shelly has managed to keep Bulldog Corner going.
Shelly also rents out Bulldog Corner for parties and other functions, her prices are very reasonable and she is able to cater and provide food as needed.
If you want to support Bulldog Corner further you can also buy limited edition T-shirts which feature humorous captions such as "A Side of Attitude Served With Every Meal" or "ORDER WHAT YOU WANT, EAT WHAT YOU GET". If you want a T-shirt they are reasonably priced around $15.
Bulldog Corner also hosts Christmas with Santa every year. In 2011 and again this year theRiver church will be helping out to ensure all the kids get to meet the jolly red man!
Bulldog Corner is open from 6am to 2pm Monday thru Friday and 6 am to 11 am on Saturday.
If you have not eaten at Bulldog Corner you are in for a treat with many great dishes and specials on offer.
It is time we all made Bulldog Corner a regular stop be it for a casual meal, a special outing or to visit with friends.
Happy 5th Anniversary Shelly!
