Nartker’s big aspirations in the local food scene started when he was a student at UD.
Narco Burger is a new Dayton restaurant in the works at 605 Spinning Rd. in Dayton.
“A good friend and mentor of mine is the founder of Cousin Vinny’s,” Narkter said. “I worked for him when I was in college at UD when he had just the one store on Patterson Road. I took a year off of college and ran that store for a (portion) of the profits. Eventually, I went back to school and off to industry, but always came back in between jobs.”
After a job loss last year during the pandemic, Narkter felt it was the right time to put work into a restaurant of his own. His wife Kaitlynn is helping with the restaurant’s preparation ahead of a grand opening.
“The dream was to work for myself and become financially independent to the point I can help others.,” Narkter said.
