Shokey ’ s is a pleasant surprise on T . R . 55

Josie Sellers
Shokey ’ s on Township Road 55 is run by Roger McGlone and Lory Shook .
By Josie Sellers
Customers who stopped by Shokey ’ s on Township Road 55 by accident changed the roadside eatery ’ s business with one popular Facebook post .
“ We started out with feeding our neighbors ,” said Roger McGlone , who operates the business with Lory Shook . “ About 2 1 / 2 weeks ago , people came and put our picture on the internet . They drove by and then backed up and decided to come in and check us out .”
Neither McGlone nor Shook believed a Facebook post on an Ohio road trips page could have such an impact on their business .
“ They said it would change your life ,” Shook said . “ They put us on Facebook , and everything went wild .”
Shokey ’ s is located at 41784 Township Road 55 in Coshocton . McGlone

“ They are coming for my pizza too ,” Shook said . “ Those are selling like hotcakes . I make my own dough , and have a secret recipe .”
“ All her recipes are secret ,” McGlone said . “ She won ’ t even tell me .”
Shook cooks all her dishes in a former church bus they spent two years turning into a kitchen with items from auctions . Next to the bus is a covered area for people to sit , enjoy their meals and take in the eclectic decorations .
“ People started bringing stuff for us to hang up ,”
