This article reports that Ohio-based company Stop & Go International opens its new store and launches a new brand image in the process. Becky Shotwell, the president/owner of the company unveiled the newest Stop & Go site, a raze-and-rebuild at one of the company's locations in an affluent section of Medina. And this site is a step in a whole new direction for the chain founded by Shotwell's parents Carl and Ruth Abell in 1963. One of the key elements of the new location is the expanded foodservice section. The 1,100-square-foot foodservice area includes an open kitchen so customers can see the food being prepared.
