“New Orleans Style Poor Boys”

In 1982, Glenn Murphree purchased Olde Tyme Grocery. When he first bought the store, it had aisles of can goods, produce, and five small carts. Although it wasn’t fancy, there were three things Glenn liked: it had character, a deli case, and a low price tag. On Glenn’s birthday, they agreed on a price and around 3 o’clock, Glenn ran to the bank for change and was open by 5 o’clock! Growing up in New Orleans, Glenn loved a good poor-boy. He did not know anything about going into business for himself, but he did know that he wanted to make the best poor-boys possible. In the beginning, Glenn was the only employee and made approximately 10-15 poor-boys per day. Through years of hard work, Glenn learned the meaning of patience, perseverance, the ability to make changes when needed, and many other valuable lessons in life. It is through the support of his family, friends, and employees that Olde Tyme Grocery has become a favorite establishment for many locals and a great find for tourists!
