Four years ago Marc Morley opened Hot Tamale, a Mexican-influenced restaurant in Potsdam, NY that offers fresh, never frozen food, providing the area with quick, healthy options. Morley and his fiancé have since opened two more locations in Cortland and Canton.
Last year, Morley opened Between the Buns, a gastro-pub and gourmet sandwich establishment, also featuring fresh, never frozen ingredients. Morley states, “Our burgers are definitely our signature item; we offer 10-12 different burgers with unique ingredients that appeal to many demographics. We have our best sellers like the Southwest Burger, the Black & Bleu Burger, and our famous “Hangover Burger” (which is topped with a fried egg).”
BTB also offers some great vegan and vegetarian options, such as the Portobello Burger and the Tofu burger. Morley says, “These days, trends move so fast in the culinary industry, it’s important to find something new—which is why it is great to work with Maines. We utilize their people to find inspiration and collaborate to discover that new trend.” Morley says working with Maines has been a pleasure. “I know they are really looking out for us and want us to succeed.” He enjoys the fact that Maines has a “family feel,” and he finds the culture of the business to be refreshing and unlike any other food distributors he’s worked with in the past.
