The founders of the Dairy Queen® system were men and women who introduced a new kind of dessert treat and, in the process, developed the foundation of the franchising industry. The history of the DQ® system is a story of a unique product that created an industry. For more than 70 years, the DQ® system’s recipe for success has been simple. It’s been a combination of hardworking people who own and operate restaurants, and great-tasting food and tempting treats served in our establishments.

Although much has changed in the world and in the DQ® system through the years, one constant has remained: DQ® restaurants are still, and always have been, the place to find kids’ sports teams celebrating a victory, business people on their lunch break and families taking time out to enjoy great food and soft serve treats. And success for the DQ® system is as simple today as it was in 1940. Satisfied customers lead to successful restaurants. Each owner of our independently owned and operated establishments worldwide is committed to nothing less than the “Fan Food not Fast FoodTM” slogan.

To be completely honest, some of us bit the dentist until we were 12. Intentionally! We get it: most people would rather chew glass than go for a 45-minute biannual routine checkup. Well, we’re not your average dentists and we don’t provide a run-of-the-drill experience: we’re your neighbors and your friends—who happen to be experts in dentistry. Our predecessor Dr. William Bricker founded his practice in the 1970’s and operated two successful offices in Antwerp and Paulding until his retirement in 2009. Since Dr. Bricker passed the torch to us in December 2009, our office headed by Dr. Sarah Mowery has persisted in delivering the same level of superior family dental care to the people of Northeastern Ohio. A former Butler Bulldog and graduate of Indiana University’s prestigious School of Dentistry, Dr. Mowery specializes in general family dentistry, providing comprehensive dental care to patients ranging from infants to seniors. Along with our staff of seasoned dental hygienists, Dr. Mowery strives to craft long-lasting smiles for all of her patients. In the cheerful and relaxed atmospheres of our offices, patients are treated like people, not walking mouths. That means there will be no manhandling and never any “I’ll be back in 5, er 45, minutes.” When you step into our office, as far as we’re concerned, you’ve joined our family; and like a family, we take care of our own. We look forward to remodeling our offices in the near future to mark our transition to a paperless practice. Soon, you’ll be seeing state-of-the-art everything: brand new equipment, flat screens and even iPads for filling-out patient forms. Complete with a revamped children’s area in the waiting room, our offices soon will match the incomparable level of care you can expect to receive from Dr. Mowery and her team.We’re always welcoming new families! If you’re interested in learning more about our practice, we invite you to come by one of the offices to meet our team, and of course, our office mascot Gizmo. Both humans and hound would love to see your smiles

Marco’s Pizza founder Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco moved to the U.S. from Italy when he was nine years old and grew up working in his family’s pizzeria. He later embarked on a mission to make high quality pizza on a larger scale using a secret sauce recipe that he developed and refined with his father.

Giammarco established three standards in order to deliver the consistent levels of quality and freshness expected of Marco’s products: dough made fresh daily in each store; a proprietary sauce recipe that blends imported spices and three types of vine-ripened tomatoes; and an exclusive blend of three fresh cheeses (never frozen, unlike many pizza chains). The first Marco’s Pizza store opened in Toledo in 1978. Gradually, stores opened throughout the Midwest and beyond. The Marco’s Pizza menu broadened as well, to include hot sub sandwiches, salads and Cheezybread for carryout and delivery. Today, there are more than 500 Marco’s Pizza stores in 35 states and the Bahamas.

Your local Marco’s Pizza hours of operation:

  • Mon. – Tue.: 3:30pm – 11:00pm

  • Fri. – Sat.: 11:30am – 1:00am
  • Sunday: 11:30am – 10:30pm

Paragon Tempered Glass, LLC produces tempered glass products, filling a variety of different specialty applications where strength and/or safety are specified. Tempered glass is four to five times stronger than annealed glass which makes it desirable in transportation, architectural and a variety of other applications. In addition, its balanced internal stresses enable the glass, when broken, to crumble into small, harmless “chunks” instead of splintering into sharp, jagged shards. Tem-Pace and Spec-Temp have now merged to become Paragon Tempered Glass, LLC. Customers will continue to enjoy the same quality, reliability and value upon which we were founded…but now, a lot more.

The first Red Angel Pizza shop opened for business on July 4th, 1974 in the small town of Payne, Ohio. The amazing pizza and grinders became an instant hit and many more shops were created in surrounding areas. Like many others, you may wonder where the name came from. It’s actually quite simple: The names of the original founders were “Red” and his partner “Angel”. They put their names together and “Voila”! The foundation for Red Angel’s delicious pizza is still the same today as it was over 36 years ago: A unique sour dough crust and an amazing sauce recipe that’s worth millions! We never skimp on our toppings and every pizza is finished off with a thick layer of pure mozzarella cheese. Our Mission: We strive to provide the best product for our customers. We realize that there are many choices in the area for pizza…that’s why we guarantee our product. If you aren’t satisfied with your pizza for some reason, please let us know and we’ll make it right. We also take pride in being flexible. If you like your pizza a certain way or have a special request, we would love to accommodate you!

Featuring the largest vertical glass tempering furnace in the world, Taylor Made Glass continues to invest significantly in our Payne, Ohio facility – keeping it one of the most efficient, state-of-the-art glass bending facilities the world over. In the past decade, 15,000 sq. ft. of floorspace has been added, and the installation of two more vertical tempering furnaces has doubled our capacity. The pre-furnace operation has undergone considerable improvements, adding a new conveyor system, new wash line, three drills, two large paint tables and an additional grinder. Perhaps most importantly, the vast majority of tooling is now constructed in-house, implementing the use of two-up molds that double the output of each furnace cycle. The end result of all of this effort and investment is an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility capable of producing flawlessly tempered, beautifully curved glass for a myriad of market segments.

West Bend News is a division of the parent company West Bend Printing and Publishing Inc.. The business is split evenly with the newspaper and the commercial printing division. West Bend actively seeks news and ads to present in a local only printed newspaper that crosses the Ohio/Indiana state line, seeking to enhance business and living opportunities for all people. The website is carefully crafted and allows access to news for everyone along with the ability to search and print all past issues. There should be no charge for news and it should be freely accessible. This is why the newspaper is free in area businesses and organizations throughout northwest Ohio and northeast Indiana.

Paulding County is a great place to work, live and raise a family. My goal at MY 102.7 is to highlight all the positive things that make this part of Ohio our homeWe will be playing The Beatles to Bon Jovi. I wanted to play ‘classic rock’ but my kids informed me that the music I listened to while in high school now qualifies for oldies status, so I guess we’re an oldies station.

As a farmer I have listened to a lot of radio in the tractor over the last 30 years. We have a variety of really good stations in our area. But a few years ago I started noticing that we receive radio signals that are not really tailored to us. I am excited about giving our local schools, county officials and local events a spot light. A radio station in Paulding County for Paulding County.

My 102.7 broadcasts from a county landmark. During the Cold War, the government built several towers for wireless communication. This was part of what became known as the “Washington to Moscow Hotline”. Now privately owned, an antenna has been installed on the 310 foot red and white iron tower two miles west of US127 on CR 176. It is a really neat old building and what could be cooler?! Classic rock being broadcast from a giant iron tower built during the cold war that is able to withstand a nuclear blast – it is perfect!
