Business Briefcase - August 19, 2014

Greetings, Briefcasers. While this was one of those weeks when I couldn’t seem to get a live person on the phone before deadline, I do have a fairly full list of things to cover, so let’s not waste any time.

Lots of hungry Buckeye residents have been asking when Firehouse Subs is opening. Hopefully, they’ll still be hungry at the end of September when the sandwich shop is expected to open south of Interstate 10 at 485 S. Watson Road, according to company officials.

Business Briefcase: August 8, 2014

Rachel TrottI’m all for learning something new every day, so let’s start out with a little “on this day in history” trivia before I get down to business.

Did you know that on Aug. 12, 1994, major league baseball players began a strike against team owners limiting their salaries? The strike lasted 232 days and as a result, the World Series was canceled for the first time since 1904.

Business Briefcase - August 5, 2014

I love seafood and freshwater fish, but it seems like our options run a little bit dry here in Arizona.

Never fear if you’re craving something with fins, because Ada’s Fish Fry opened about two weeks ago east of West Wigwam Boulevard at 14960 W. Indian School Road in Goodyear.

That’s near Millennium High School for those of you who aren’t so great with street names.

Business Briefcase: July 29, 2014

Rachel TrottThis Briefcase was written on a beautifully overcast morning. The forecast predicts that the West Valley is in for another monsoon Sunday afternoon, so hopefully by the time this hits your driveway on Tuesday, we’ve enjoyed a nice, cool weekend.

I didn’t go to what we in the biz affectionately call J-school to be a weather woman (although those green screens always looked like a lot of fun), so let’s talk business.

Business Briefcase: July 22, 2014

Hello, Business Briefcasers!

I’ve been alternating with Reporter Rachel Trott on the Briefcase for almost a year now, helping bring business related items that were newsworthy, but not quite large enough to warrant an entire story.

And now, my time sharing these duties has come to an end.

It’s not you, readers. It’s me.

Just kidding, it’s really just a bit of shuffling around at the paper. One of our long-time greats Mike Russo is headed off for a well-deserved retirement. I’ll be shifting over to a role in sports coverage here at the View. I do hope I don’t have to cover any Luis Suarez-type incidents on the sports side of things. Please, high school athletes, no biting!

Hey, there.

You’ve found another Briefcase. Fancy that. Well, pull up a seat and settle in, I’ve got some news to share.

First up is a fun business that I believe is the only one of its kind in our coverage area right now (although as always, I’m willing to eat my hat if that turns out to be untrue, but Google reaffirmed my suspicions).

Fire Me Up recently opened in Suite 301 at 13778 W. McDowell Road, just east of Litchfield Road in Goodyear next to Sweet Salon.

The pottery studio allows customers the opportunity to pick out a piece of pottery to hand paint.

“We have a wide range of painting opportunities. The bisque range changes with the seasons, so you can find something suitable for birthdays, Halloween, Christmas or weddings,” owner Tara Gaffney said. “We then glaze and fire the item for you. The finished item is usually ready for collection in five days.”
