Business Briefcase: February 15, 2017
Submitted by Shane McOwen on Wed, 02/15/2017 - 12:00am
Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine’s Day.
I’m sure the last thing everyone wants to read about after a night of desserts, wine and affectionate gazes (for those who celebrated) is a small lesson of the holiday. Well, too bad, your Briefcase Host calls the shots!
Wait! Don’t go!
Thanks for reconsidering jumping to another article. The good news is the other stories are in print, so they’ll still be there when you’re done with this one.
OK, back to the original point.
Cupid is the figure most associated with Valentine’s Day, and deservedly so. The Ancient Roman god of desire, attraction and affection makes perfect sense as a mascot for the day.
It’s sort of a funny thing having a Roman deity as a mascot, since Valentine’s Day originated as a Christian liturgical feast day honoring a few saints named Valentine in the Catholic church.
Please don’t tell the missus that’s what I was thinking about when I should have been planning a nice evening out.
Anyway, let’s get to some business news.
In Litchfield Park, Times Square Neighborhood Italian Restaurant opened a few weeks ago in the Fry’s Marketplace shopping center at the northeast corner of Camelback and Litchfield roads.
Times Square was announced in summer 2016 as one of the tenants to the new shopping center, and offers pizza, pasta, sandwiches, chicken, seafood and veal dishes.
It has four locations in the Phoenix Metro area, two in north Phoenix, one in Scottsdale and the newest location in Litchfield Park
The Litchfield Park location is also open for early dining with a full breakfast menu.
The restaurant’s hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Good news for those waiting on information regarding Carolina’s Mexican Food.
It looks like the Valley-famous Mexican food restaurant is set to open Feb. 27 at 27 N. Dysart Road, near Dysart Road and Western Avenue in Avondale.
Carolina’s was originally founded by Carolina Valenzuela in 1986 in Phoenix.
The restaurant is famous for its menu, as your Briefcase host can personally attest, as well as its homemade tortillas. Actually, if you ask anyone who’s frequented Carolina’s few locations around the Valley, the first thing most likely to be mentioned is the tortillas. Again, that’s your Briefcase host’s personal experience.
The Avondale Carolina’s will encompass approximately 11,000 square feet, with an additional 2,000-square-foot patio dining area.
Moving on, Family Focus Speech Therapy is moving in March from its current location to 401 W. Van Buren St., Suite C, in Avondale.
Family Focus offers a multitude of pediatric speech therapy services for children of all ages. Speech therapist Jovia Dossou earned a Master’s Degree in Speech Language Pathology and has more than 10 years of experience working in the public school setting.
For information, call 623-505-6307 or visit familyfocusspeechtherapy.com.
