"Being an owner has caused our family to expand by encompassing our employees and their families, our guests and their families. We are genuinely concerned about what happens to each other and we are there for one another. I know that if I need help I could pick up the phone and call a local franchisee or the Home Office and have the help I need or be pointed in the right direction. Having that kind of relationship with other stores is comforting and strengthening."
-Yvonne Wood, Thomasville & Bainbridge, GA
"It is nice to have the ability to share your issues, challenges and successes with your fellow operators. I always learn something from another operator every time I visit their Beef’s® or attend a meeting."
-Ed Conlan, Apopka FL
"We would not have been as successful as we are without the help of the Beef's Family. Whenever I have a question or need advice I can get an answer from either Home Office or another partner in a timely manner."
-Stacy Bratcher, Owensboro, KY
"Dedication, Community involvement and pride!"

"My father grew up with Mr. Mellody in Scranton and remained close to him throughout the years. Mr. Mellody would stop over at our house in Bowie, MD every summer because his sister-in-law lived close by. He would always joke with me about how easy his restaurant was to run and maintain. Little did I know, this was a big joke! With my good friend Rich Harlin, I moved to Tampa in 1992 to see if I could be an entrepreneur. This was tough because I came from such a big family and would be missing out on a lot but the Mellody’s made my transition easy. They took me in on every holiday and special occasions. They introduced me to some great business partners, like Lou DeLeo and Don Bosko who were there for me when I had any questions or concerns about our concept. Without this family, I would not be who I am today. I've been very blessed to have three great families in my life...The McHale’s, The Mellody’s and Beef ‘O’
