When the Great Recession struck in the late 2000s, millions of people around world were impacted. This hits close to home for Joe Lucidi, who was looking to get his groove back following his business’ turbulent times from 2008 to 2012.
 
Lucidi now owns and operates Haymaker Restaurant Co. in Goodyear.
 
“I decided to open a restaurant that reminded me a lot of my parents’ restaurants, which served family-oriented comfort food,” Lucidi said. 
 
“I took a big detour from 20 years ago and decided to make almost everything from scratch. We use a lot of family recipes. We use a lot of local ingredients. That’s very important to us.”
 
And, thus, Haymaker Restaurant Co. was born. Initially launched in Peoria in 2013, Haymaker expanded to Goodyear and North Phoenix in 2014 and 2015, respectively. The success has continued to grow.
