Can you remember back in 2008 when the bottom fell out of the US economy. Oliver and Sherry can, Sherry had just graduated from Tarleton State University that past summer and Oliver had just been let go from AIG due to downsizing in the struggling economy. Both of them in their early thirties were given an opportunity to write a new chapter in their lives.
Sherry asked Oliver what would you like to do, since we can do anything we want. Oliver told Sherry that he had always wanted to own a restaurant. Sherry looked at Oliver like he was crazy!!!! Then Sherry said that she could get them started with a deli, it was a low startup cost and they could go any direction once it got off and running.
See, Oliver and Sherry are foodies, they love good food and will travel wide and far for a good plate.
As for the location of the up and coming deli they decided on Stephenville because the rental prices were affordable and there was not many places offering fresh soups, salads and sandwiches. They introduced crèpes, gyros, and bulgogi to the town, and the people loved it!
During their almost 13 years of business they have changed locations 3 times settling in their current location across the street from TSU. They have seen busy times and slow times however they could have never predicted what has happened in 2020.
COVID has given them the unique opportunity to enhance their deli for the better. They took this time to renovate the dining area to be COVID friendly for the current climate and beyond. They installed an aquaponics wall that not only provides fresh air but also fresh produce for the deli. They also made themselves booths with planters to provide more oxygen and clean the air between groups, a mask if you will for the tables. In doing this they are able to seat up 100% capacity. “Not only will this help during this unprecedented time, but it will also help going forward during the cold and flu seasons.” ~~Sherry.
Big O’s was created out of passion for food and a love of each other. Both Oliver and Sherry have worked along side of one another and continue to evolve and grow with Big O’s. “We will always be foodies that own a restaurant, and because of that we will always be surrounded by deliciousness.” ~~Oliver
When you take a seat at Big O’s you can feel safe that your neighbors will not be sharing your air. We have created booths with your needs in mind by placing the back of the booth higher and adding planters that have the mother-in-law, and potato vine plant to help cleans the air between tables. Not only will this set up help during this unprecedented time but will also help during cold and flu season going forward.
This system combines conventional aquaculture such as fish with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. By using this system in Big O’s we are able to lesson our carbon foot print by cultivating our produce in house with the help of Tarleton State Universities Ag Department.
Big O’s has a large selection of gluten free items so that if you happen to be a person who is suffering from gluten allergies, we will be sure that you do not have to sacrifice flavor in your quest to find something delicious.
