Tweet Business of the Day: Handy's Lunch

Who: Earl Handy, 36, @handyslunch

What: Handy's Lunch, a family owned and operated diner.

Where: Burlington, Vt.

How: After Handy graduated from college in 1996 his father passed away and left the family-restaurant in his hands. Handy planned on keeping it running and passing it on to new management, but instead found it was the perfect fit for him.

"It's a nice, tight-knit community—we have been here for 65 years," he said.

In his own words:  "I know 75% of my customers by their first name, and if not, I will get to know it. You can come here by yourself, and not be by yourself because someone will visit and talk with you. We are very family oriented, so everything we do is with that in mind."
