REAL Program Helps Open Restaurant


Faye Schultz knew she was taking a leap when she opened Mrs. Lacy's Magnolia House & Tea Room on Carthage Street in Sanford back in 1995. Faye had spent most of her adult life as a nurse - first at Central Carolina Hospital and later as an independent contractor - and admits she didn't know the first thing about creating and operating a restaurant. Yet, a decade-and-a-half later, Faye's restaurant is still flourishing.  Read the full story here.
