What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
The overall friendliness of the people in our area. Also, the state leaders are pretty accessible for questions or advice for solutions to problems. If you do contact a state official who doesn't seem to care, there is always someone else who is willing to help.

Description of business:
In late 1999, Sharon and Mike Corwin decided to have a stainless steel 50s-style diner built and located in Waverly. Their desire was to open a place that would become part of the community where people could gather with their friends and share in good conversation and old-fashioned home cooked food. They opened Diner 23 (located on US Rt. 23) on July 5, 2000.

Sharon provided most of the recipes including her meat loaf, spaghetti sauce, hot dog sauce, marinara sauce, chili, vegetable soup, potato soup, cole slaw, and sausage gravy. She is well-known for her pies and cakes. Sharon is originally from Pike County.

Mike is originally from Marion County where his father, Damon, had the Red Castle Diner and Patio Drive-In in Marion, a diner at Munk's Corners, and the Circus Chef Diner on S. High St. in Columbus. Mike spent 32 years on the Waverly Police Department, retiring in October 2001 as police chief.

Mike & Sharon were married in 1979 and have three sons who have worked in the diner. They now have their own families and careers. They still help out from time to time.

The diner has become a meeting place for locals and travelers. The breakfast regulars gather and discuss politics, events, and solutions to the world problems every morning. Politicians have also used the diner as a meeting place and for news conferences. Several senators, congressmen and congresswomen, attorneys general, state auditors and governors stop when they are in the area.

Overall, Diner 23 is a place where people can come in the first time as strangers and leave as friends. Good home cooking is served along with old-fashioned diner hospitality.
