Schools.  Tonya  has worked in the food industry for the past 31 years and the last job she had was being a manager with Longhorn Steak House located in Cookeville TN. She had been with them from the first day they opened. Jeff on the other hand, retired with over 20 years as a First Sergeant from the United State Army as a Infantryman. He became self employed and worked building metal buildings and remodeling 100 to 250 year old homes throughout Tennessee and Kentucky. With their schedules, they never seen one another very much. They both decided to quit their present jobs and open a restaurant so they could spend more time together. In Feb. 2010, they purchased “Showtime Pizza and Video Store” in Baxter TN and after spending 3 1/2 months remodeling, it became “THE WHISTLE STOP PIZZERIA & MORE”. Jeff and Tonya employs mostly local young adults, usually being their first job. They strive to help teach them some responsibilities and getting them ready for the workforce.
