The West Mifflin Economic Development Board is excited to announce Mulligan’s Sports Bar and Grill and Ham n Eggers Diner as the Businesses of the Month for September 2019!
According to their nominator, “Brad and Katie Yeschenko do a great job representing the community. They’re always open to hosting local events such as fundraisers, private parties, community tournaments, etc. They are great examples of local business owners who invested in our Borough and have found success in multiple ventures.”
Business of the Month Asked & Answered:
Mulligans is a sports bar and grill that caters to all ages. Our 18 TV’s give our customers the opportunity to enjoy any game or event and enjoy our daily food and drink specials. We have happy hour specials throughout the week as well, and host several public and private events. Supporting the community is a major priority, which is why we host several fundraising activities to help support the local communities and teams in the area. Our recently expanded menu includes several new and exciting items as well as updated drink specials.
Please give a brief history of your business including why you decided to open in West Mifflin.
When opening Mulligans in 2008, we chose West Mifflin because there were several original owners all from West Mifflin, and most of us attending West Mifflin schools growing up. Being familiar with the area and the culture around town helped us with the idea of what we wanted to see available to the community since there was no other big sports bar in the area to visit to watch the Pittsburgh sports teams as well as provide more than just your average local bar. As time had past, we’ve done our best to keep up with the new trends, craft beers, menu items, etc. We’ve even included some favorites from the West Mifflin High School cafeteria menus like the Fiestada pizzas, tator tots, and so on!
Ham n Eggers is a diner serving breakfast and lunch. Our hours are 6am to 2pm daily. Opening in February 2017 , we are located in the Hot Metal Plaza in the old location of the Hot Metal Diner. With there being no true local diners in the area, we felt that it was a great opportunity to open in West Mifflin and offer something that the chains do not offer. Large portions, friendly service, great prices, and a true diner atmosphere. We strive to use local products and businesses and offer several homemade options. Some of the key local businesses we partner with are Mancini’s bread, Weiss Meats, and Pastries a la Carte.
Anything new going on or special promotions you are currently offering?
At Mulligan’s, we just had our new menu come out with several new items for our customers and we’ve adjusted our daily specials to give the customers what they are looking for:
- Monday – $5.00 1/2lb specialty burgers
- Tuesday – $10.49 All U Can Eat Wings
- Wednesday – $1.50 Tacos
- Thursday – $6 Flatbread pizzas
- Friday – $8.99 Fish sandwich meal
- Saturday – $5 Appetizers
- Sunday – $2 Pizza slices
Along with all of these food specials, we also have daily drink specials to complement our meals. You can visit our website at www.mulliganspgh.com to see our upcoming events, menu, drink specials, and so on. You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. With Steelers and Penguins season coming up, we also have game specials for all of our Pittsburgh teams. We also are coming out with a new lunch menu in September.
Ham n Eggers has a daily “early bird” special that we offer before 9am. Our newly added fresh orange juice maker was installed a few months ago, and we now offer fresh squeezed orange juice which has been a big hit and we also offer homemade milkshakes. You better come hungry when eating at Ham n Eggers diner, as we are known for our HUGE portions while we also offer a kids menu and strive to be family friendly.
With the diner closing daily at 2pm, we also have recently started to rent our location out for private parties, events, showers, birthdays, meetings, etc. We are very affordable and flexible with our options. We have pricing for catering for events, as well as strict rentals if you would like to bring your own food. We offer catering of all kinds for parties, which includes an entire food option that is not on our current menu.
What’s your favorite part of running your business?
My favorite part of running the business is the people. We have a great group of regulars, and we get people from all areas that stop in and visit. Our staff is very friendly and strives to give you a great and comfortable experience. With the local hotels, we get a lot of out of town guests too which always sparks up great conversation.
In addition, being involved in the community is also one of the greatest parts of running the business. Giving back to the Borough as well as helping teams, schools, and other causes raise money is extremely important. We host several fundraising events each month, and it’s wonderful to work with the people involved and the satisfaction of knowing we were able to help them to raise funds for any cause. We open our events up to all surrounding communities and have built great relationships with some of them who host events annually with us. We recently were a key sponsor in the Borough’s End of the Year Foam Party at West Mifflin Park. That was a fun event for us to take part in and watch the kids having a great time. Anything we can do to give back to the people who love to frequent our place is enjoyable for us.
Tell us something we might not know about your business.
You may not be aware that we are available for local delivery on Uber Eats, Doordash, and we’ll be added to GrubHub soon. So even if you can’t make it in-person, you can still order our full menu to be delivered. Additionally, Ham n Eggers is working to acquire a liquor license in order to serve Bloody Mary’s, mimosas, and other brunch drinks. We’re also hoping to add gourmet coffee and “grab n go” options in the near future. Follow us on Facebook for updates and exciting news!
