Blue Flame Gas Service: A family business offering premier customer service

 

by June Portnoy

In 1964, Eugene “Chuck” Charlton worked as a truck driver delivering coal. He worked his way up and throughout the years bought several area fuel companies specializing in home heating oil delivery and service, as well as diesel and gasoline delivery. Ultimately he added propane to his list of specialty services when purchasing Blue Flame Gas Service in 1988.

Today, he owns and operates this business with his sons, Chuck Jr. and Mike.

“Our family has been in the energy business our entire lives,” says Chuck Jr. “Unlike natural gas companies, in which you’re dealing with a large conglomerate, we are a small family business.”

As opposed to servicing 25,000-plus customers that are treated like just another number, Blue Flame makes a point of getting to know each customer by name. It has very loyal, long-term customers, many of whom have been with them since Chuck Sr. bought the business.

Blue Flame Gas is truly a business of local family owners, all of whom live in Bucks County. “We live in the area we service,” adds Chuck Jr. “You’ll see us in the grocery store and at your local bank. We are not living in some distant, remote location; we are your neighbors.”

Customer service is, and has always been, the cornerstone of the Charlton’s business. “That’s what we’re all about,” explains Chuck Jr. “We are here for our customers.”

Blue Flame is a full service propane gas company providing propane delivery, service, and installation. It offers continued automatic delivery, meaning its drivers will come to your house when it’s time to replenish your propane, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Service technicians are available 24/7, every day of the year for emergency needs, such as a disruption to your heat or hot water service. Many of Blue Flame’s employees have worked there for 15- to 20-plus years, developing a comfortable rapport with their customers.

Service technicians and drivers arrive in uniform, clean and professional, and are trained to answer any of your questions. 

“We have no hidden costs or gimmicks,” says Chuck Jr. “We are kind, courteous professionals. What you see is what you get, and most importantly, we are a local business that stands by our work.”

Blue Flame Gas Service meets your propane needs throughout Bucks County and in portions of Montgomery County. In addition to residential service, the Blue Flame staff are experts in all uses of propane, including forklift cylinders, gas grill exchanges, bottle and bulk deliveries, and service for commercial and agricultural needs as well, servicing many local retail stores, restaurants, and small businesses you probably frequent. Lastly, through its sister companies, the Charltons can handle your heating oil, diesel, and gasoline needs, as well.

If you’re looking for a quality company to handle your propane needs, contact Blue Flame Gas Service, a local family business located right in your own community.

Call 215-249-3575 or visit www.blueflamegasservice.com.

Bowman’s Tavern: Providing quality food in a welcoming, casual environment

 

by June Portnoy

Although Bowman’s Tavern in New Hope has been in business for seven years, James Seward recently took over its ownership, bringing with him improvements to its menu, service and décor.

All food is now cooked on the premises. “We smoke our own bacon and purchase the highest grade seafood and meat,” says James. “Customers have told me that they can taste the difference in our food.” 

Bowman’s Tavern specializes in new American cuisine. The menu is changed every three months to represent the season, depending on what’s growing that time of year. In addition, the tavern’s specials reflect the current market and the chef’s creativity. 

“Bowman’s Tavern was initially called the Forager House for about 20 years, and we continue that tradition by sometimes foraging food, like mushrooms and wild onions, from local woods and forests,” adds James.

While enjoying quality food at Bowman’s Tavern, stop by every night for live entertainment. On Friday evenings, New Hope’s own Bob Egan comes to perform. 

On Sunday nights, come see Bowman’s Tavern’s owner perform with the group, Lorenzo. James plays the guitar with Michael Amery, owner of the Inn at Bowman’s Hill playing the fiddle, and Lorenzo, lead singer and guitarist.

Bowman’s Tavern still offers the same inviting atmosphere as before, and strives to provide an unpretentious, atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable.

Bring your entire family, and you’re sure to find something on the menu that everyone, including your children, will enjoy.

“We are very appreciative of our customer’s business, and therefore, aim to accommodate each of our guest’s requests,” says James, a hands-on owner who is virtually always at Bowman’s Tavern.

“We want our customers to walk in, feeling like they are walking into a friend’s tavern, and being served by friends who go out of their way to exceed their expectations.”

 To enhance your dining experience, Bowman’s Tavern will be making renovations March 10th through March 19th, during which time it will be closed.

“We’re not changing the feel of the restaurant, but we’re giving it more of a Bucks County tavern feel, with barn wood from antique barns in the area,” says James. “We will also be displaying artwork created by local artists that will illustrate our tavern’s concept.”

Be sure to stop by Bowman’s Tavern and enjoy the quality food, welcoming atmosphere and new décor. Free parking is always available.

For additional information about Bowman’s Tavern, located at 1600 River Road in New Hope, call 215-862-2972.  Also visit www.bowmanstavernrestaurant.com.

Villa Vito Ristorante: Serving authentic Italian food for over 40 years

 

by June Portnoy

While many New Hope restaurants have changed over the past 40 years, Villa Vito Ristorante continues to serve the same authentic, delicious food this community has enjoyed for decades. It is owned and operated by the Favoroso Family.

Its home-style meals were created by family matriarch, Florence Favoroso, and her recipes are still used daily. Joey Favoroso, one of Florence’s sons, worked at Villa Vito’s as a teenager before his family bought this restaurant, being the first Favoroso to work there.

Villa Vito is reminiscent of those restaurants that you would discover in older ethnic neighborhoods of Philadelphia, New York or Boston’s North End. This restaurant is not defined by culinary trends, but instead by cooking traditions and generations of families that have come here to eat and enjoy it as a place that takes you back to your childhood memories of holidays with loving relatives and cherished friends, with the hope of making your own new family memories.

Villa Vito is a warm, cozy, friendly place to eat with family and friends. It continues to use fresh ingredients in its Italian and American dishes. The restaurant offers a diverse selection of dishes ranging from soups, salads and sandwiches to gourmet pizzas, entrees and delicious Italian homemade desserts, like tiramisu, zuppa inglese, and Florence’s homemade pizzelles.

Its entire menu is available all day, but you can also select its daily lunch special. This includes a sandwich with soup or salad or French fries or onion rings for just $8.95.

You can also receive a great deal on its dinner special of chicken marsala or chicken parmesan at $10.95. Plus another dinner special includes veal marsala or veal parmesan for only $14.95. Both specials are delicious, as are the many homemade pastas, such as gnocchi and cavatelli. 

There are so many good selections at Villa Vita that you’ll have trouble finding a favorite. Everything on the menu is available for take out as well.

During the cooler months, you can dine by the fireplace. When it gets warmer, you can look forward to sipping a glass of wine “al fresco” on the patio and outside bar.

If you want to extend your visit to Villa Vito, simply walk downstairs to Michael Kelly’s Irish Pub. The Favoroso Family reopened this bar and named it after their nephew, now 22-years-old. It’s a tribute to the Irish roots of their family tree.

At Michael Kelly’s, you can enjoy a cheerful, old-fashioned bar atmosphere with a friendly bartender and service in a quaint and rustic setting (the building dates back to 1860). Choose from many favorite Irish beers on tap, such as Guinness, Smithwick’s and Magners Irish Cider.

You can also select from various liquors or the newest trends in cocktails, like a tiramisu martini or a B52. The bar is now open late night.

Villa Vito has a party room that accommodates 40 people inside and 50+ people outside, both ideal for weddings, birthday parties, pub-crawls and any other special occasion. It also offers off-site catering and will custom-tailor a menu according to you and your guest’s unique tastes and preferences.

Visit www.villavito.com for reasonable rates on its party menu. Come and dine at the ever-popular Villa Vito to sample one-of-a-kind recipes in a fun, family atmosphere at 26 West Bridge Street in New Hope.

For more information, call 215-862-9936 or 215-862-2155. Also, follow Michael Kelly’s Irish Pub on Facebook.

Eagle Diner: New Hope’s only diner is thriving

 

by June Portnoy

Although New Hope is known for its many unique restaurants, there’s only one classic American diner in this community, and that’s the Eagle Diner, located at 6522 York Road. It’s also the only eating establishment in New Hope open 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week, with the exception of Christmas Day.

You can even come here New Year’s Eve and order off the regular menu without the usual high prices you’ll pay at most other restaurants on that holiday.

“We don’t specialize in any one cuisine because we serve a little bit of everything, from goulash and chicken pot pie to ravioli,” says owner, Jim Rokos. “We offer large portions of good quality food, all of which is prepared on the premises.

“Our dishes are made with the finest and freshest ingredients from local partner companies and local farms.

“Plus, our full menu is available all the time, regardless of what time you eat here. Many of our customers enjoy eating breakfast for dinner or in the middle of the night.”

Just the fact that the Eagle Diner serves breakfast is a nice perk, as many New Hope restaurants don’t open before lunchtime. In addition to traditional breakfast foods, such as omelets, hash browns and sausage, the Eagle Diner is currently serving pumpkin pancakes through the end of the year.

Another favorite at the diner is its “endless salad bar,” consisting of a large variety of over 40 items, including soups, as well as plain, cinnamon and cheese breads.

“First-time customers are pleasantly surprised by the large selection and diversity of food items at our salad bar,” adds Jim.  “We offer many more choices than most average salad bars.”

The Eagle Diner also offers a great diversity of mouthwatering homemade desserts created by its own staff baker. The diner’s on-site bakery accepts special orders for any occasion.

And you can’t beat the prices here! Starting at about $11, you’ll get a meal that includes soup, a vegetable and the salad bar.

While most diners offer an Early Bird Special that lasts approximately two hours, the Eagle Diner offers its own Value Meal, available all day and evening from 11:00am until 9:00pm. It includes a meal, vegetable, drink, dessert and the salad bar at a discounted price. Plus, everyday the Eagle Diner offers four to five different specials.

This diner also has a private room that accommodates up to 40 people, so consider having your next business event, wedding shower or holiday party here. The diner’s friendly staff is also happy to prepare trays for your off-site parties.

This is a family owned and operated business with a hands-on owner. In addition to running the restaurant, Jim will cook and serve when needed. His son, Marko, helps him manage the diner, and his daughter, Kelly, is the diner’s hostess.

Jim brings 35 years of restaurant management experience to his New Hope diner, which he purchased 10 years ago. For the past 21 years, he’s owned the successful Eagle Diner in Warminster.

So what keeps customers continuing to patronize the Eagle Diners year after year?

According to Jim, “People come here for the food, price and service. We strive to create a comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere where people can enjoy a good quality meal at affordable prices.”

For more information about the Eagle Diner in New Hope, call 215-862-5575 or visit www.eaglediner.com.

Tiny Tots Nursery: Offering a positive educational experience in a small, nurturing environment

 

by June Portnoy

At Tiny Tots Nursery, your child will be nurtured, cared for and treated like a member of the family.

“We are a small school and we plan to remain small so that every child receives the personalized attention they deserve,” says Tiny Tots Director, Josephine Smith.

Tiny Tots, located at Street and Mechanicsville Roads in Solebury, accepts students from 16 months through kindergarten. It offers one class per age group with a very small student to teacher ratio.

“The majority of our teachers have been with us for a long time, so they know our children well,” says Josephine. “They also know their families and younger siblings, our future family members.”

Students engage in school-wide activities like designing a monthly mural based on a particular children’s author.

“Our kids come together like a family to work on this mural and when they’re done, it becomes a source of pride of what they accomplished together,” says Josephine.

Most projects at Tiny Tots are child-driven, not teacher-driven, meaning children are asked to brainstorm about the activities in which they want to participate and the resources they want to use.

“This children involvement teaches them to problem solve and think outside the box,” says Josephine. “It also gives them time to explore, experiment and have fun while cooperating with each other to get the job done.”

An example of completely student-driven activity is the school’s annual opera based on a fairy tale.

“We give our pre-K and kindergarten students the words of a song and the music and then let them do the rest,” says Josephine. “They become the directors, producers and set designers while discovering their interests and strengths.”

Every student is given a solo, offering them a chance to shine and enhance their self-esteem.

Tiny Tots is licensed by the Department of Education and the Commonwealth of PA State Board of Private Academic Schools.

“We make sure we are teaching the same curriculum as our local elementary schools, so when our kindergarteners start first grade they are well prepared to be successful,” says Josephine.

Tiny Tots students receive music lessons from a music teacher who comes in once a week and art lessons from a local artist who comes in twice a week. In addition, they are also taught sign language. Plus, a Japanese teacher on staff teaches them songs in her native language.

Every week, each child is asked to perform at least one act of kindness at school. Students are recognized for this positive behavior.

“Now that our students have learned to complete acts of kindness for their school family, we’re asking them to look outside and perform acts of kindness for their community family,” says Josephine.

As a result, this year, Tiny Tots has partnered with the Doylestown Pantry. Students will collect and then distribute food to their neighborhood food pantry.      

Tiny Tots offers very flexible scheduling. “Bring your preschooler in as few or as many days as you want,” offers Josephine. “We will accommodate your schedule.”

Choose between half day and full day kindergarten. Tiny Tots provides transportation to and from local elementary schools for before and after-school kindergarten enrichment. Before and after-school care is also available.

Tiny Tots is open from 7:30am until 5:30pm Mondays through Fridays. Call today to enroll your child at Tiny Tots at 215-794-7001. For additional information visit www.tinytots.us.

Savage Landscape and Tree Service: Committed to personalized, quality service

 

by June Portnoy

Savage Landscape and Tree Service is a locally owned and operated business specializing in hardscaping, landscaping and tree services.

When you hire Savage Landscape and Tree Service, you deal directly with its owner, Jerry Savage, during all aspects of the job. Jerry does it all, from providing you with an accurate estimate to developing a unique design, through the quality installation of the project.

“I work on every job myself to ensure customer satisfaction,” says Jerry. “My goal is to exceed my client’s expectations,” and that he does whether he’s installing a new patio, paver, walkway or retaining wall.

By keeping his business small, he can offer you the personalized service and attention you don’t receive from many large companies, while also offering competitive pricing. In addition, you can count on Jerry to work exclusively on your job without worrying about him attempting to juggle multiple projects simultaneously. As a result, he will complete your job promptly without any delays or interruptions.

Foremost to Jerry is the quality of his work. “I will not cut any corners on the quality of materials I use.”

Although manmade products are easier and faster to install, Jerry encourages his customers to choose natural materials instead.

“I prefer to use natural stones, like flagstones, because they are classic, timeless and indigenous to this area, and as a result, hold up better over time,” says Jerry. “Natural materials will not weather or discolor like most manmade materials.

“Although installing natural products is more labor-intensive, I believe it’s worthwhile because the end result is a nicer looking, more durable product.”

Before starting your job, Jerry will present you with a blueprint of the finished project. He works alongside his experienced workers never rushing a job.  Jerry prides himself in being meticulous in the preparation and installation of each and every job. “I take the time to make sure your job is done right.”

Jerry is so confident in his craft that he offers a warranty on his workmanship.

In addition to hardscaping, Jerry’s expertise in landscaping can significantly enhance your home’s exterior by changing its contour, adding ornamental features, or planting trees, shrubs or flowers. Jerry can also handle all your tree service needs, ranging from pruning bushes and creating new designs of shrubs to removing unwanted or hazardous trees from your property.

Savage Landscape and Tree Service even offers a guarantee on trees or plants, meaning if they don’t survive the season, Jerry will replace them.

“Fall is a great time to take care of all your hardscaping and landscaping,” says Jerry. “Get all your outside work done now, so it will be ready for you to enjoy next spring when everything is in full bloom.”

Let Savage Landscape and Tree Service enhance the aesthetic value and curb appeal of your home, producing an outdoor area that you and your family can enjoy all year round. This business has been servicing Bucks County and the surrounding areas since 1989.

To schedule a free consultation with Jerry, call 267-733-7227. For additional information, visit www.savagelandscapeandtreeservice.com.

Savage Landscape and Tree Service is both licensed and insured.

Skerdlant’s Shell: Traditional, friendly service combined with modern, state-of-the-art technology

 

by June Portnoy

Skerdlant’s Shell Automotive Center in Washington Crossing has become a landmark in this community. Manager Sam Scully can attest to this first-hand being he’s been working here since 1962. After being discharged from the Navy, he started working here as a gas station attendant, working his way up to station manager 30 years ago.

“We’ve always been known as a friendly station,” says Sam, born and raised in Washington Crossing. “We take the time to talk with our customers and get to know them, many of whom have been coming here for multiple decades.

“Each of the four people who have owned this station have believed in keeping good staff happy, so they remain here as long as possible,” says Sam.

He still works at Skerdlant’s 5½ days a week and has no plans of retiring in the near future. “The longevity of our staff is one of the many things about this station that makes us so special,” adds Sam.

“We have very little turnover, so our customers continue to see the same, friendly faces over the years.”

All four owners have offered student employees flexible schedules, so they can continue working here while going to college. Current owner Matt Miller is an example of this type of employee loyalty. He started working here 17 years ago at the age of 15 while attending Council Rock High School.

Sam jokes that when Matt was first hired as a gas station attendant, he was too young to drive, so he needed a ride to work. While Matt went to Bucks County Community College and then to Temple University, he continued working at the station on weekends until he graduated.

Like Sam and Matt, Brad Yates, an automotive technician at Skerdlant’s, has been employed here for the unusually long length of time of 27 years. Now with four pumps, this station still holds the record of being the only gas station in the area.

“You’d have to drive all the way to Newtown or Yardley to find the next closest gas station,” says Sam.

Although the station continues to offer a traditional, hometown feel, when Matt became owner of Skerdlant’s three years ago, he transformed the gas station into a full-service repair station with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.

“Our station truly is the best of both worlds,” says Sam.

Its ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certified master technician on staff, Andrew Watros, applies his great diagnostic skills to all vehicles.

Skerdlant’s has the expertise to handle all repairs of both foreign and domestic cars and light trucks. It offers customers the unique opportunity to purchase Jasper engines and transmissions, available with three-year/100,000 mile warranties.

To ensure exceptional performance for vehicles of all ages, Skerdlant’s provides Mobil 1™ oil changes. For your convenience, the station also offers free shuttle service to and from your home or office. Plus, if you break down, call Skerdlant’s for towing.

 “Despite all the upgrades and advances at this station, our margin of profit for service hasn’t changed for years, and our customers truly appreciate that,” says Sam. “You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the low prices we charge for parts and labor.”

Also, be sure to come to Skerdlant’s for your PA Inspections and Emissions.

Hours are Mondays through Fridays from 6:30am until 9:00pm, Saturdays from 7:00am until 9:00pm and Sundays from 8:00am until 8:00pm. For more information or to schedule an appointment at Skerdlant’s Shell Automotive Center, located at 1099 Washington Crossing Road (the intersection of 532 and Taylorsville Roads), call 215-493-4347.

Doylestown Dance Centre expands to second location in Lahaska

 

by June Portnoy

Doylestown Dance Centre is excited to announce that its established dance studio of 18 years recently acquired the Dance Junction at Peddler’s Village, so it’s now the second Doylestown Dance Centre (DDC) in the Central Bucks County community.

“I am honored to continue to offer quality dance education in a caring environment at our second location,” says Dina Winter, owner and director of the Doylestown studio since 2010.

“Whether your child comes to our studio once a week for recreational dance or is an aspiring professional dancer who participates in multiple classes throughout the week, she/he will receive equal attention from our experienced, talented instructors,” adds Dina, who has 22 years of dance experience and 14 years of teaching experience.

The newest studio will remain directly above Giggleberry Fair at 165 Carousel Lane in Peddler’s Village in Lahaska. It will continue to offer its very popular acro dance classes in its large studio with all the same acro equipment. It will also continue to offer birthday party packages.

Plus, you will be pleased to find several of your favorite instructors from Dance Junction teaching acro, ballet and modern dance.

A noteworthy addition is DDC’s award-winning competition team that will now be available for students at both locations. Dancers accepted into this competition team will compete locally, regionally and nationally.

Also new to the Lahaska Studio is the DDC Ballet Company. This Ballet Company offers four levels of classes based on skill.  Interested students are required to audition.

Ballet Company dancers will perform in community events, and Dina anticipates that there will now be more performance opportunities in events at Peddler’s Village being its newest studio is located here. Due to DDC’s expansion, it can now offer more classes with teachers in both locations.

“We’ve gone from two studios to four, and therefore, can provide your favorite teachers in our Doylestown and Lahaska locations, just 10 minutes apart,” says Dina.

Both locations offer a range of classes for all ages.  Choose from ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, modern, musical theater, acro and hip-hop. Pre-ballet and creative movement classes are available for three- and four-year-olds, and its wiggle club is ideal for two-year-olds.

DDC also offers adult dance classes in ballet and stretch, tap, jazz and modern.

The culmination of the year is the studio’s annual spring recital and its ballet performance. The fall session runs from September through June, and DDC is currently accepting fall enrollment for all ages and class levels.

If your child is interested in DDC’s Ballet Company or competition team, call 215-230-3777 to schedule an audition.

To enroll in classes or for additional information, visit www.doylestowndance.com or email Dina at missdina@doylestowndance.com.

The studio’s Doylestown location, and mailing address for both locations, is 800 N. Easton Road, Suite 2, Doylestown, PA 18902.

Laundry Room of Lambertville: Setting new high standards for Laundromats

 

by June Portnoy

If you have several kids or work long hours, the last thing you probably want to do is laundry.  Plus, you might not have a washing machine big enough to clean large, bulky items, like comforters.

A logical option is to take your clothes to a Laundromat, but many people perceive Laundromats as dirty, undesirable places that are unsupervised by staff or owners.

Kevin Roberts, owner of The Laundry Room of Lambertville, his recently purchased third local Laundromat, understands why people have this negative stereotype of Laundromats.

Says Kevin, “Sixty years ago, Laundromats were so popular because few homeowners owned washers and dryers, so they had to go to Laundromats to clean their clothes. Therefore, Laundromat owners didn’t have to do anything to maintain their stores in order to draw in customers.”

According to Kevin, today Laundromats are usually older establishments and run the same way they were operated in the past.

“There has been zero standardization of Laundromats, but my goal is to standardize the model of Laundromats, and to set very high standards,” says Kevin. 

For the past three years, Kevin has refreshed and restored previously owned Laundromats, “reinventing” them.

“I have improved the aesthetics of these stores, so they now appear bright and cheerful. Every store is cleaned several times a day, so customers can tell there is a presence here,” adds Kevin.

Kevin is a hands-on owner who makes a point of visiting each of his stores practically every day. The opening of The Laundry Room of Lambertville is great news for New Hope residents since this town has no Laundromat of its own. 

Located right off of Main Street and Coryell Street in Lambertville Borough, this Laundromat (formerly Amy’s Coin Op) is a perfect addition to Kevin’s first two stores in Doylestown and Warminster.

All three Laundromats offer the same amenities, such as free Internet, cable TV, a change machine, an ATM machine, as well as snack and soda vending machines. In addition, they have a large selection of modern, high efficiency washers and dryers to accommodate small and large loads of laundry.

For your convenience, they are open 6:00am until 11:00pm every day, with an attendant available during business hours.  You can feel secure any hour of the day knowing a surveillance system is on-site for your protection.

Let the Laundry Room of Lambertville focus on all your laundry needs by utilizing its Wash and Fold Delivery Service. Simply drop off your dirty, disheveled laundry and within 24 hours, the staff will wash, fold and package it for you, so you can pick up clean, neatly folded clothes.

The Laundry Room of Lambertville will also deliver your clean clothes to your home within up to a 10-mile radius of its store. Now that’s service!

“Customers tell me this is the nicest Laundromat they’ve ever been to,” says Kevin. 

Come see for yourself by doing your next load of laundry at The Laundry Room of Lambertville. For more information, call them at 215-718-5070 (the same number for all three locations), email them at lambertvillelaundry@gmail.com, or visit www.lambertvillelaundry.com.
