In 1964, Wes and Ann Jespersen built a gateway to the past, where today their children helm Ben Franklin Apothecary’s pharmacy and adjoining quilt shop, general store, and old-fashioned Kitchen’s Deli, where malts and ice-cream floats recall the soda shops of yore. Amid the deli’s vintage Coca-Cola ephemera, hot sandwiches and cold cuts nestle into baskets lined with red-gingham wrappers, and jumbo baked potatoes embrace chili and cheese. Kitchen’s Deli’s signature pies rotate daily, filling buttery crusts with coconut-, peanut-butter-banana-pudding-, and strawberry-flavored charts of the free-market system. The deli also caters celebrations and hosts special events such as happy hours and appearances by Elvis impersonators.
