Baklava King

"My name is Jeff Ugur. I am the Co-Owner of Baklava King, Inc. with my wife Sarka Ugur. We have been recently visited by the City of Santee’s top team including the Mayor himself and the City Manager at our facility. It was a great opportunity to meet our City’s Government in person and introduce our products, business model and the facility. As Business Owners we were impressed with the idea of Business Visitation.  It wonderful to see our local elected officials are making efforts to meet The People and their businesses, try to understand their challenges and offer to be a resource to support them. At the same time it helps them to better understand the Economic Landscape of their community. We think the City of Santee and their Business Visitation program rock!" - Jeff Ugur, Owner

 

Chick-fil-A Santee

"I was extremely humbled and honored to be able to host the Mayor, City Manager, and several other top city officials at my restaurant. To say this type of visit is uncommon is an understatement, especially since it wasn’t a ribbon cutting or official event. The purpose was merely to build a bridge and create understanding between a small business owner and the community. Fellow owners in my chain rarely get this type of attention or relationship building in their communities! This visit speaks to the strong leadership of the City of Santee, and how they are willing to “walk the walk” about serving their community. I received immediate feedback about a business challenge in my drive-thru, and was able to show off my exceptional people and food. Additionally, I gained additional understanding about how the Mayor, City Manager, and Planners are approaching big issues like traffic, affordable housing, security, and growing local jobs for our residents. I walked away from the visit extremely impressed with our leadership and so flattered that they’d take hours out of their busy days to come hang out in a chicken restaurant! Santee is a great place because of visits like this!” -Kyle Steck, Owner
