Our Voices Matter!

Since the passage of the CARES Act in March, I have been working to include SBA Disaster loans prior to 2020 be given the same debt forgiveness afforded small businesses with SBA guaranteed 504 and 7a loans through the CARES Act. While I may have been the one to bring it to light, it takes a village to shine a light on it. The National Restaurant Association, Texas Restaurant Association, […]

Pink Ribbon Month 2019

October 7, 2019

I was number 10 on my mother’s maternal line to be diagnosed with breast cancer.  I knew I was high risk, so I was diligent in my screenings. What am I saying? You are your first line of defense.  You must put yourself first and get screened; otherwise, if you have breast cancer, it will never be found. Throughout my journey, I learned that sometimes the treatment can be harder […]

Prepare to Succeed

September 30, 2019

Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” We think these are wise words that apply directly to disaster preparedness. As a small business that has flooded four times, being prepared has become a daily part of running our business. Many of you will recall a few weeks ago Houston was hit hard by Tropical Depression Imelda, causing record flooding. Imelda was a surprise to […]

Rosh Hashanah – “How Did Our Moms Do It?”

September 23, 2019

I have  tons of sweet memories of spending Rosh Hashanah with my family, but they aren’t exactly what you would think! My mom, Marion Goldsmith, would hold a big dinner and lunch for Rosh Hashanah with family and friends alike. I never missed one – no matter where I lived or what was going on.  Even when it was the UN General Assembly and I was working at The Waldorf […]

My Early Introduction to AIDS in NYC

June 3, 2019

I just listened to a podcast about the 25th anniversary of the movie “Philadelphia.”  It moved me so very much and took me back to the 1980s in New York City. It was 1984, and I had just begun working my first “real” job at The Waldorf=Astoria. The lead Assistant Manager was a man named Michael, who was a wealth of knowledge and knew how to deal with any and […]

Why We Remained Open During Passover 2019

May 14, 2019

We, Bobby and Janice Jucker, co-owners of Three Brothers Bakery, have fought back after every disaster to befall our family owned bakery. We come from a history of survivorship – beginning with the founders’ liberation during the Holocaust.  As many know, Hurricane Harvey brought four days of rain and over fifty inches of rainfall.  It was a life changing storm.  Harvey was our 4th flood, plus we survived and rebuilt […]
