Deano’s Sweet Potato Café closed again, could be sold

Deano’s Sweet Potato Café, which closed after the shooting death of owner James Dean Herbert II in January, and re-opened in April, is now closed again and may be sold, according to daughter Jennifer Gonzales.

The café, at 443 Miller Valley Road, had hired a new chef, who did not work out, and, Gonzales said, damage was done to the kitchen.

“We are working with our insurance and cleaning up the damage that was done and will reopen when the work is complete,” she said. “We are going to do it the right way — the way my dad wanted it.”

But, Gonzales added, the family “would love to offer terms to the right buyer. Someone who could run it the way my dad would want it, someone who cares about people in this community.”

MOD Pizza coming to Prescott Valley

Plans are in the works for a MOD Pizza to be built next to the coming Dunkin Donuts at Centre Court and Glassford Hill Road, according Prescott Valley Planning and Zoning documents.

MOD Pizza, based in Bellevue, Washington, was founded in 2008 and has 250 locations in 20 states — including 20 locations in Arizona — and the UK.

The name, MOD, stands for “Made On Demand.” The pizza company made Forbes magazine’s 2018 “100 Best Workplaces for Millennials” list.
