Longview Blue Ribbon Restaurant Winner

A Longview restaurant has earned the prestigious blue ribbon award for excellence in service to the public. Since opening 20 months ago, the Tree Frog Deli on Judson road has impressed Longview health inspectors with meticulous attention to details , cleanliness and hard work.

"We try real hard we all work hard together we follow all the rules and regulations we keep our food at proper temperatures" said co-owner Brandy Durrett. In 20 months they have received only one minor violation, and have scored perfect marks on all but one inspection... And today was the payoff for their hard work.

"Since opening your doors for business you've consistently showed a commitment to excellence in serving the public. Its because of that we created the blue ribbon award and its with great pleasure that we present this award to the tree frog deli congratulations" said KLTV presenter Barbara Smith.

With only 3 employees, they all pitch in and work like a family , and it's paid off in the way customers have responded. "The customers they're not just customers their people to us, when they come in the door we know their name we know what they want to eat, a lot of times they'll say the usual and go sit down" says co-owner Patricia Browning.

The highest recognition the health department can give is a perfect mark... And the ladies at the Tree Frog Deli... Plan to get many more.
