On October 5, Renee’ Moore, Owner and Manager of Broadway Deli, entered and participated in this year’s Chilli Fest at Headwaters Park in Fort Wayne. Her goal was to have some name recognition and new business from the crowd by passing out menus and coupons. Imagine her surprise when Broadway Deli earned 3rd place; a bronze medalĀ for the “Red Chilli with Beans” category.

Not wanting to be rude by taking their medal and leaving, she and her helpers stayed while other categories were being announced. Much to their surprise Broadway Deli received another bronze medal for the “Restaurant” category. Now Renee’ and her team; which consisted of her husband Dan, her sister Heather, and their friend Greg, were completely amazed.

At nearly the end of the distribution of medals and trophies came “The People’s Choice Award”. This award was given to the overall winner based on everyone that came to sample food that day; the publics pick. Renee’ could not believe it when she heard that her Broadway Deli had won; they received the gold and bragging rights for “The People’s Choice” at the Chilli Fest.

Stop in and see Renee’ at Broadway Deli, located at 504 Broadway Street in New Haven. She claims that she is still smiling cheek to cheek.
