  95. I used to work there long time ago. One of the owners was a goof. they were very unclean in the back. i remember working on the bread bagging machin, and a loaf of bread fell off to the floor and renato who was one of the owners told me to bag it still. also i remember after i left there a couple years later, they got fined for unsanitary conditions. just saying. still crappy though.
