McCoys return to Pearson & Co.

Former owners return

Mike and Kendra McCoy are returning to the cafe and catering company they sold last spring. The couple have been asked to bring their longtime expertise back to the business after a reorganization of the company now owned by Chef Josef Keller and wife, Jill Keller-Peters.

Recent months have proved to be disappointing and it is thought that their experience will help to improve the future business.  [We] will be evaluating the present circumstances and making some constructive changes where appropriate,”said Kendra McCoy.

Locations at Fourth Street and on Mendocino Avenue remain open for business. The company will no longer operate a cafe at Kaiser Permanente. “We hope all customers, new and old, will visit us soon,” said McCoy.

Keller purchased the business from the McCoy’s last winter, after a overhauling the county’s Meals on Wheels food program. He shuttered his longtime restaurant, Josef’s in 2010. The Kellers are currently maintaining ownership.

“We needed to step back and are looking for new opportunities in our lives,” said Keller.
