During the month of May, students enrolled in the spring semester marketing course at Northampton Area High School were given the opportunity to work with Richard Scott, co-founder of Frites, the newest restaurant at the Lehigh Valley Mall.
Frites offers menu items involving french fries in three ways: in a cone with a choice of 17 dipping sauces, in a bowl piled with toppings or as a Frita in pita bread with toppings. This unique concept, combined with Scott's passion for his business, is what made this partnership a dream come true for high school marketing teacher Tara Mrazik.
The year was 1864; a man by the name of Tilghman H. Reinsmith opened a funeral service to go along with the furniture store he owned at 191 Main St., Emmaus. Little did he know his business would still be going strong after 150 years. Although the furniture business is no longer around, the Reinsmith Funeral Home has been continually serving Emmaus and surrounding communities for a century and a half.
