Udder Success: A Florida SBDC Success Story: Andy’s Susie’s Too – Naples, FL.  Andy and Susie Lypen are savvy and experienced restaurant owners in Southwest Florida.  Andy has been a restaurant owner for over 20-years and embarked on the relocation of his restaurant in 2013.  The prior restaurant, Susie’s Too, served breakfast and lunch.  At the new location, at the Shops of Hammock Cove on 4392 Thomasson Drive in Naples, Andy is dishing up three delicious square meals in addition to serving specialty ice cream, tagged “Utterly Good” by staff and patrons.  Andy’s unique restaurant is bright, colorful, and clean with the extra twist of adding a fun cow motif in his décor. Cathy Haworth, Certified Business Consultant with the Florida SBDC at FGCU has been working with Andy for about a year, assisting him in the transition of the business to a new location, business planning, financial reviews, and the liquor license transfer.  With Cathy’s assistance, the Lypen’s were able to seamlessly have the liquor license transfer and now offer beer and wine.  During the interview, lunch was served and by far, their lunch sandwiches are fantastic and there is no skimping on the serving size.  The Florida SBDC congratulates the Lypen’s for their “Udder” success in the opening of their new location.
