Village Cuts’ new owner returns to her roots

by June Portnoy

When Melissa Ramos was 15-years-old, she worked at Village Cuts as a shampoo girl. She enjoyed working with the close-knit group of hair stylists at this salon’s relaxed, friendly atmosphere so much that she remained at Village Cuts for the next 16 years, working her way up to a hair stylist. Melissa left the salon when she was in her early 30s to work at a different salon, but just eight years later, the owner of Village Cuts approached her, offering her the opportunity to buy the salon where she got her start.

“Had I been given the chance to buy any other salon, I would have declined the offer, but I had always dreamed of owning Village Cuts because this is where I had first discovered my passion for the hair and beauty industry,” says Melissa.

Jay’s Steak and Hoagie Joint: Home of the signature Soft Pretzel Roll

by June Portnoy

Jay’s Steak and Hoagie Joint has brought a unique taste of cheesesteaks to Penndel, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It all starts with the roll. Owner Jay Green takes a fresh long roll and uses his own secret ingredients to transform it into a freshly baked pretzel roll. It not only looks like a pretzel roll, it tastes like one too!

When you purchase this signature pretzel roll, 25 cents of the cost will be donated to help a local food bank buy fresh meats, fruits and vegetables.

“After terminating my agreement with the Steak and Hoagie Factory franchise and establishing this new business a little over two years ago, I wanted to produce a steak sandwich that was unique from what all the other steak sandwich shops sell,” explains Jay. “In order to accomplish this, I took three of what I consider Philly’s best foods, including the soft pretzel, a cheese steak and cream cheese, and I put them together in one sandwich.”
