Gary goes on to say that the football team has helped rather than hurt the restaurant business. Gary has been able to incorporate coaching the Arlington freshman football team into his business by being “able to cater” the wraps to various events for the community. Likewise, the football team has helped Gary out by providing many new employees. Gary App is a very involved member of the Arlington Community. His time and effort into the Arlington Schools and Community between coaching and running a business is greatly appreciated and does not go unnoticed.
