Eastside Fish Fry and Grill has been a staple in the Lansing area for seven years now. They sold 18,000 chicken wings during the Super Bowl and owner Henry Meyer says they sell 2,500 wings a day.
But Meyer’s path wasn’t always clear to him and he had to go through some hardships to get to where he is today.
“Nobody took a chance on me nobody would hire me,” said Meyer. “I was having a hard time finding a job.”
And now, he’s paying it forward.
“We employ a lot of people who wouldn’t get another chance somewhere else for the same reasons I didn’t get a chance,” Meyer said. “I do take a chance.”
