42nd Ave Fish and Chips Owner and Founder Aaron Peterson and business partner Cedric Burton were in business for a year at Northeat 14th and Alberta when their property site was purchased for redevelopment by Kdamdukong Suh, the NFL star with the Miami Dolphins and former Grant High School football standout. A 90 day eviction notice required them to find a new location. The change of locations has proven positive, with more room for parking, and more customers.
The move to 42nd Avenue is also a return to familiar neighborhood. Both Peterson and Burton are alumni from John Adams High School which was located just down the street from their new location. The business partners have known each other for 40 years.
Peterson, who was born in Las Angeles, says owning a restaurant is a blessing, especially when people love your food. As an entrepreneur for many years, his pursuit of the American Dream formerly included starting his own grocery store, doing promotions, operating a barbershop, a funeral home, and starting a newspaper.
Burton was born in Selma, Ala., and previously worked for 30 years for Pendleton Woolen Mills.
