>>TRINA DEMARCO: Sixty-one years later, we have seventy-three restaurants now across three states.

>>TRINA DEMARCO: Caring for Kids started as a really simple idea in 1979 with one of our servers. She was really passionate about giving back to the community, and decided to have a fundraiser to raise money for the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. The next year, she challenged her peers to do the same.
