ACityDiscount's Gary Estwick recently caught up with the food service newbie to talk Philly cheesesteaks, poke bowls and school buses. Check out the video to learn more.


"It's always been my sandwich of choice," Taylor said. "I always ordered a Philly cheese steak. I tend to try all the Philly cheese steaks in an area, and then stick to the one I like."(For the business) I started experimenting with my own concept. That's what made me want to open a restaurant."


"The Bus" - 3-26 Philly's signature item - has grilled ribeye steak, white American cheese, mushrooms, onions, pizza sauce, sweet peppers and pepperoncini peppers.


"It has everything on it, and it’s delicious. It has all the flavors - the peppers for the heat, the pizza sauce, the cheese, it's tender and juicy... it’s really a great sandwich."

" We went to ACityDiscount knowing that they had a great product line. We met with Mike Ellin, and Mike was a super salesman. He helped us through every step of the way, and through all of the equipment that we purchased. Mike looked at the diagrams of our restaurant and helped us pick out the items that we needed. He was a great help. His staff was very courteous. They came out, brought the equipment, helped us set up. We’re in Rome (Ga.), so we’re not in Atlanta. We’re an hour and a half away. (But) the staff came, the trucks came, they unloaded, helped us set up and we had a great experience with ACityDiscount. We would buy from them again – any time. "
