Located right off Route 19 in the Rivesville area, Full Circle Kitchen has been a hidden gem within the Marion County area, as residents visit to receive one of a kind meals filled with quantity and quality.
Full Circle Kitchen owner and operator, Matthew Swartz, told 12 News that the name “Full Circle” came from a company ran by his brother who had passed away. He adopted the name into the food service business, while also keeping the concept going through the serving variety of meals all throughout the day.
“It fits in with what we do like if I told you we roast pigs on New Years Day so we go from anything from smoke meats, crepes, to steak, we are a scratch kitchen that does a little bit of everything so kind of the full circle so that how it fit in.” said Swartz.
That same full circle concept even touched on customer service, as regulars to the newly opened family-ran restaurant said they were amazed by the continual service of large dishes and exclusive flavors like the highly sought after crepes.
“Steak hoagies, they are huge it took me three days to eat that hoagie, I mean it was huge then they give you a order of fries with it shoot I couldn’t even get the fries down.” said Paula Shipley, a resident of Greentown, WV.
“We never had a crepe place anywhere and this is a revolution in food and it’s a great one.” said David Kennedy, resident of Fairmont. “There are overwhelming surprises here that you don’t see in other places and these folks are doing it and everyone is talking about it.”
Swartz told 12 News it’s all about meeting the demands of the community and leaving them with something to be proud of locally.
“You’re not in New York City, you’re not in D.C, you’re not in one of those suburbs, you are in the middle of coal miner West Virginia. What do people want? They want a good meal at a good value and if you give them that it should make them happy and that was basically the idea behind the menu.” said Swartz.
Rather it’s the quantity and quality of meats that you can receive like the T-bone steak during Saturday Supper Club, the Tuscan chicken pasta that you can eat for the Sunday “all-you-can-eat pasta”, or even the crepes, Full Circle Kitchen makes sure to satiasfy all customers’ needs.
