2014 Greater Cincinnati Food Tour — Mokka in Newport, Kentucky

Mokka and the Sunset Bar and Grill

Newport, Kentucky

By Alix Smyth

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m falling head over heels for Mokka and the Sunset Bar and Grill. “Mokka” is an open and airy bar filled with friendly employees and valentine décor to celebrate the day of love. They have gone the extra mile to celebrate this day by adorning each table with a heart shaped balloon, special red and white plates, and dishes of Hershey’s kisses.


Shortly, after being seated, a friendly waitress took our drink orders and we all were left to decide what we were going to lunch on. Mokka’s menu has a variety of options, including breakfast which is served until 3:00 p.m. I opted to go with the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, one of the more modest sandwiches on their creatively crafted menu. Upon being served my sandwich I couldn’t help diving right in. The smell of the sandwich was absolutely enticing and with a taste to match I couldn’t ask for anything better. The sandwich contained fried buffalo chicken tenders that were topped with ranch, lettuce, and tomato all nestled between two seasoned hoagie buns. To complete the meal, crispy waffle fries were served alongside the perfectly crafted sandwich; a match made in sandwich heaven. After clearing my plate, I knew I had discovered a restaurant that I will be having a long term relationship with.

If you haven’t been to Mokka yet, do yourself a favor and visit. Their delicious food, welcoming atmosphere, and grade-A-service can’t be beat. Thank you, Mokka for being my first “restaurant love” at the Eisen Agency; I’ll be seeing you soon.

Mary Miller will offer advice and insight on best practices for reaching leadership goals

Cincinnati, OH – October 13, 2011 – “I love being around people who are excited about their future, who have the energy and willingness to pursue their passion in life, but are just waiting for someone to give them permission,” says Mary Miller, CEO of JANCOA Janitorial Services, Inc. “As a business leader and a mentor, I strive to give my employees that permission—to empower them to succeed.”

Miller will participate as part of a five person expert panel at the Goering Center Executive Luncheon Seminar: The Journey to Authentic Leadership on October 25th at the Crowne Plaza in Blue Ash, from 11:30am – 1:30pm. Miller will share the story of her journey to authentic leadership and how it has lead to greater fulfillment for her and for the JANCOA employees.

This executive seminar is based around True North, a book written by Bill George (acclaimed former Medtronic CEO) that provides great lessons for those who seek to effectively & authentically lead others. This high-impact session will allow attendees to gain new insights about unique family concerns that occur in business and learn about the real power of authentic leadership. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions of panel members that apply directly to their own business situation.

“Mary Miller has been a motivating force for the Goering Center, the community, and JANCOA, Inc.,” says Larry Grypp, president of the Goering Center. “She demonstrates the power of transparency and the focus on her purpose as a leader.  We are privileged to have Mary on our board of directors and excited to have her as a panel participant for the Executive Luncheon Seminar.”

Mary and her husband Tony have put an end to the revolving door in their business by creating a work environment that inspired the bestselling book The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly.  After considerable research about what contributes to happiness in the workplace, JANCOA implemented the Dream Manager program to encourage employees to think about their long-term dreams and take the necessary steps to achieve them.

“No matter who you are, what you do or how much money you make, everyone needs a dream,” says Miller. “People often stop dreaming, but dreams are what keep us excited about our jobs and our lives. I want to share my story in hopes to inspire people to reach for their dreams and to lead others along the way.”
