Yesterday a customer came in to pick up a slushie machine he had payed for the previous day. While One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment’s technicians were loading into the gentleman’s car, we struck up a conversation. I mentioned how I wasn’t used to the Florida heat, having just moved down here from New England and my home state, New Jersey. The man asked where I was from in New Jersey and I told him I was born in Bayonne and raised out in a smaller town called Newton. Turns out, he’s from New York State and his daughter lives in Bayonne!
Small world! Long after his slushie machine was loaded and ready to go, he stayed and chatted about everything from Jersey to the Occupy Movement to passion fruit. He even chatted up Boss Frog about Egyptian politics. Here’s hoping he’ll come around some more!
I only spent a handful of my childhood years in Bayonne, but my grandmother still lives there. She’s a tough lady who refuses to move to the country with my parents because she would be bored. A lot of notable people are from Bayonne besides me and the slushie machine guy. Shaquille O’Neal, actor Frank Langella, and hugely successful author of the Game of Thrones novels George R.R. Martin – to name a few. Most impressive.
Whether you’re from Bayonne or not, come into One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment if you’re in the market for any kind of used commercial restaurant equipment. Yes, One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment has more than just slushie machines.
