3-5 | Client Spotlights: Dave’s Supermarkets, Mill-Rose Company & Saucy Brew Works

Dave’s Supermarkets: In the late 1920’s, Alex Saltzman hung up the reins of his horse-drawn produce wagon, opening a corner family store at East 33rd and Payne Avenue in Cleveland. Alex named the store after his son, Dave, who succeeded his father in the business that continues to this day as Dave’s Supermarkets. The 5th-generation family-owned and operated business is the only retail food store to invest significantly in the City of Cleveland in recent years. Dave’s serves over 175,000 customers weekly, and employs more than 1,300 individuals.

Mill-Rose Company: Celebrating its centennial anniversary this year, the Mill-Rose Company – which originally began as a confectionery company – is the largest U.S. manufacturer of twisted wire brushes used in virtually every industry around the world, including aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, manufacturing, medical, technology and telecommunications.

Saucy Brew Works: From its launch in 2017, Saucy Brew Works has helped activate a dormant corner of Ohio City while revitalizing a historical property in the process. The company has also forged strong partnerships with organizations such as the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Cavaliers, Monsters and Legion, and has formed a charitable partnership with Breakthrough Schools.
