Tom Freeman makes it sound like a bit of an epiphany when saying he and his wife, Bridget Johnson, walked out of Briana's Pancake House in Batavia one morning last fall to see that a storefront at 6 W. Wilson was open to rent.
"We said to ourselves, no more what-ifs, let's just do it," he recalled.
