Topplez Cafe 125 News & Updates
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CAFE 125!
December 28, 2014 will be the one year anniversary since the opening of Cafe 125,
The Coffee House & Waffles! Yeah..... I have dolled up our 2nd dining room with stage
curtains, spot lights and a microphone stand for artists convenience. We will have
hors d'oeuvre, light spirits and entertaining for our visiting guests on that day into the
evening. Hours will be the same (8am-6pm). You all are welcome to stop by for a light
snack, and spirits to welcome in the coming New Year. Come Meet New People and Make
New Friends at Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles.

Artist: "IMAGE" of the United Kingdom
I got this idea by Googling "curtain ties." Spoons for curtain ties! Just something a little
different. Our 2nd dining room and its decor. Still a New York style
Thank you, Matthew
A gift from our Youth Works student, Mr. Matthew. I love our Youth Works young adults. I
wish they'd stay forever, but they'll grow up and move on. Thanks Youth Works!
ROMANIA! Ce Mai Faci?
New friends in Romania. Hello and how are you? Hope you all are well and thank you for your
support and viewings. Peace!
Fogle's Plastering & Beyond
Thank you to our wonderful friends, the Fogle's, for patronizing Cafe 125, The Coffee House &
Waffles. They have been faithful customers since our opening. Thank to you and your
construction crew for their patronage this morning and always. Love his wife and their
spirit. One of Angie's List pick for excellence in building and design!
Peace to you and your family!
Cafe 125 Poole
Well, since Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles seems to be like Fantasy Island, where
what you ask for you get (the strangest thing), we started a lottery poole. Now, when
things come true, we just look at one another like ... o-k. Well, today we started a
Cafe 125 MegaMillion Lottery poole. Our business, and a few other businesses, joined
together today in our first ticket. It would be the coolest if the entire neighborhood, some
200 neighbors, participated in a giant community lottery poole! It would be amazing to see!
Well, good luck on our first run. Our deadline is every Tuesday night for the nightly drawing.
A few customers joined in. I think this is awesome. The planning of this between all of us
was fun in itself. We were laughing, talking ... it was a wonderful feeling and day just
dreaming, planning how'd it work, and all are welcome to join!
New "Events" Page
Over the years, I forget all the events and family festivals we have participated in, so I created
an "Events" page to gradually list our events, details and more so that I can keep track of our
participations in the community. This also eliminates a loooong list of News & Updates over time.
Check back every now and then for up-to-date announcements, photos and event info on our
My Words of Wisdom From the CEO
I just want to thank all the viewers, and customers from around the world who take the time
to show their support in patronizing our businesses and our website. All the countries from
around the world that I list above and below are what makes this possible and gives me hope
in a better world where we can all come together in some common grounds, ... even if its
a smile or two, or three. We cannot fix the world, but I know how my heart feels about the
world. I can only surround myself with positive people and things that bring true happiness
to me and my staff. My goal for the Topplez Corporation's has always been to Create Everlasting
Childhood Memories in Tastes And Things You Can Remember, which as a child, many, not all,
have wonderful memories when things were simple and pure. Well, Topplez Corporation is
going back to when things were simple and pure and we welcome all those who are looking to
return to a simpler life. Truly thanks for feelings of love and support.
Peace & Blessings and Happy Holidays!
... i told you so....
Merry X-Mas, Early, To Cafe 125!
Thank you, Mr. L, for thinking of us early in the holiday season. Peace & Blessings
to you and your family. Mr. L has been a customer for about 9 months. Loves our
sandwiches and Chicken & Waffles. Usually he gets both, eats one now, and saves the
other for the next day, he says. Thanks anyway!
Some poor souls have sought me out and I believe we have all grown tired of being separate
when things could be so much easier. My next big move .... going Public! I will discuss this
with the Franchise venturer and another soul who is looking for something to throw money
into. Things will surely roll after this. I have many great ideas and have an awesome new
Cafe 125 design idea. It will be the place of life! Still the same concept but the decor .... !
Huh! Can't touch this!
Well, I have a customer who has patronized Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles
since we (I) opened. He invests in things and had sought into opening a Subway as a
business venture, however, since being a customer he loves the freshness of our foods,
in particular, our Gourmet Deli Sandwiches and comes for our sandwiches every couple of
days since we opened. He approached me Sunday (12/7/14) with an offer for franchising
out Cafe 125. He would keep the same concepts and asked if I could find a cook such as
myself, and if not could I be the cook at the establishment so the quality would be the
same and great care taken in preparation. No need to part with my formulas. Yeah!
I'm on it! Location would be in Ohio, not certain of the County. We discussed Royalties
and a few other things that needs ironing out. Thanks for your support ..... I'm almost
crying at this one.
Our Current 2014 Barista 125 Gals & Youth Staff
Over the past year, our staff has changed. If you don't see them in our Flipsnack book, they are no longer an
employee. Time for all of us to move on. It was fun while it lasted - now .... the end!
Huber Heigths Parade July 4, 2014 ("The Floating Cafe")
Enjoy images from the 2014 4th of July Parade for the City of Huber Heights. Many officials were
present to join us on the memorable occassion. We were the "floating cafe." I set our Cafe up
on wheels, with tables, chairs, a coffee bar, menu board and our lovely Barista 125 Gals in tow.
I made mini milkshakes and mini cupcakes to give to the road side residents of Huber. We received
a lot of support from the onlookers and County Officials. Thanks Huber Heights!
Business 101 Advanced Course (Chapter 8, Para 2b.ii) Find you a mentor! If you don't
know him, Harland Sanders, Google him and look at his videos on Integrity and Dreams. Follow
these steps, he says, and its a sure bet! I think he means his secret ingredients, but I could
apply that any business. I must have rewound them all about four times each. Look at the
dedication in his eyes .. true technique and vision.
I phoned our new distributor of my cold coffee beverages Cafe 125, and I assured him I send
some new samples this week. I am a very busy person and squeezing one more hour or two
out of 28 hours a day is not working. But, I have to put on my big-girl pants and keep pushing.
To all the entrepreneurs who remember when no one would listen ... you gotta keep moving
forward. There will be time to rest later. This is an excerpt from my book Business Course 101
and Business 101 Advanced Course.
Business 101 Advanced Course (Chapter 3.1b): Let's go back to simple marketing. Remember when
there were no social media sites and businesses grew on the foundation and principles of a "good"
product. Giants like Sears, Panasonic, Frigidaire, Whirlpool and others who built their successes
on integrity. Last paragraph: Let's Get back to the Basics! Get drinks back in my 150 stores!
I can only accomplish more than my 150 stores if I get a manufacturer to bottle, label and stock
my beverages. But I'd have to give them my formula, which I am not too comfortable with. Did
Harland Sanders sell his formula? Did Coca Cola to accomplish mass productions?

A little Bit of Me
Well, those who have seen me grow from the start finally know who I am and what I look like.
I've been hiding behind my cartoon characters for many years, but the TV cooking segment
on WDTN TV2, Living Dayton revealed to all what I've been hiding. Well anyway ... hello.
OK. Like I said in earlier paragraphs, we have been busy with the 4th of July Huber Heights
Parade (as the floating cafe); catered events for others; grand openings for businesses;
invitations to the Marigold Festival 2014; and other invites throughout the Ohio. I'd have to
Google myself to see all the things I've participated. My goals are the same but more targeted.
My style with Topplez products, ideas and Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles are pretty
good ones, I think, and so does my copy ters (lol). I like the people who find us as a
great place to dine, work and relax like the Unions, Arbitrators & Reps, radio station executives,
local schools, Montgomery County administrators, Youth Works, churches, our international
friends from all over, which I'd like to see if they ever visit. I still route for the underdogs
and misfortunates. Working with new businesses like "Bennie's" Good Olde Chicken and Pork
Rub (photo soon). Her rubs are available at Dorothy Lane Market, in Ohio. I don't eat pork,
but I support new businesses for ... I remember a time when no one would listen, return my
phone calls, nor emails. So I help others as much as I can.
Well Peace & Blessings.
.... i told you so ...
NEW FRIENDS IN NEW PLACES
Welcome new friends in Former Czechoslovakia and Hong Kong. I may fuss and rant some-
times, but its all in fun, correction ... I usually mean it, but I may say it in a funny way.
Now, that's more like it. Welcome and thank you for your support. Peace
NO MORE FACEBOOK
Well, been so busy its hard to post everything, so I have decided to focus on our website as
our main way of communicating with our followers. We've deactivated our Facebook (Whoo
hoo) and hope you'll follow us here as always. Grew tired of 206 Friends, when our friends
here reach 6,000-15,000+ each month all over the world! This is exciting! Nothing wrong
with the 206 Friends, just grew tired of the publicans, and those who visit me here, knew
I was looking for something new to save me from the Facebook humdrums and Big Brother
technical support staffers; where they block you for sending friend requests and honest
networking, but booty posting, gun-toting, weed smoking & graphic violence, beheadings and
whatever else makes it to post. Couldn't take the double standards!
Peace & Blessings and thank you for your support!
... i told you so ...
Hello, and who are you?
Yes, meet our newest Youth Barista 125 Gal, Suevenia, of Youth Works, Dayton, Ohio.
She has been amazing since her start last month. She attends High School and College!
Super smart and ambitious. Wheeling, dealing and juggling multiple things, it is a true
pleasure having her aboard! We hope she continues with us throughout next years placement.
She is a talented teen R&B singer and we hope to feature her in upcoming shows and promos,
in conjunction with Bookoo Studios and the world-renowned Troutmans (Zapp)! With Bookoo
Studio joining forces with the Roger Troutman family of musicians and the Zapp clan, we are
..... Taking You To New Heights! ... i told you so ....
Let's Help Barb!
She said "YES!"
Well, I have overheard one of my favorite cashiers at Kroger's has been having a tough
battle with Liver Cancer and all that goes along with the Chemotherapy and Radiation - her
second series of treatments. She is down to 86 lbs. She just happened to call in to
Kroger's, tonight, while I was shopping at approximately 0412 hours (EST). And the rest
seems God-sent: Another cashier told her that a customer has been asking about her -
that customer would be me. The coworker put Barb on the phone and I asked Barb if
Cafe 125 could put a donation box at our store location to help her out with small things
that I heard she couldn't keep up with, like her cell phone and gas and electric. Some odd
rules keeps Krogers' from allowing collection for their own employees. She has been an
employee at Krogers for, I believe, some 22 years.
Please visit our store location and leave a bit of change for Barb. Her store location is
Krogers, Old Troy Pike, Huber Heights location - but she is currently undergoing another
round of chemotherapy and has not been able to return to work. Help us help Barb, she
is a part of all of us! Every little bit will help make a difference.
God sent: I asked the coworker "Why did Barb call in tonight?" She said "I don't know, she
was just calling." Mind you, Barb works 1st shift and I have never known her to call in
at night. Funny thing, that co-worker was just filling in for a vacationing employee
and I had asked her about Barb two nights before - explaining that I was a concerned
customer. Well, that's why I say God-sent.
$1.25 MENU BOARD
Our $1.25 Menu Board has been overwhelmingly successful, providing food and making
healthy foods available to those who may be having a tough time, financially, and hungry.

many - most of these customers are working and stop by for a quick breakfast item and
return for lunch, EVERY day! JUDY'S PET & GROOMING, located a few doors down, are now

order, now they are ordering for their entire staff from our $1.25 MENU BOARD - daily! Our
Menu Board still provides the same Simple Truth Organic & Private Selection Meat items,

tasting ... naturally!

A Beautiful Purpose Rose, from a Thoughtful Customer
A fairly new customer to Cafe 125, just brought us a Rose. She caught me at a bad
time last week after hearing some awful news, and the loss of one of our Barista 125
Gals and thought this would make me smile. Totally awesome! Amazing customers
for an amazing employee gone too soon.

We are now a proud member of Ohio Youth Works Program - helping young adults learn

began just last week! Welcome to Cafe 125!
Cafe 125 Chicken & Waffles Syrups
My amazing butter-flavored syrups are much more popular that the household named
brands here at Cafe 125. Coconut, Hazelnut, Roasted Chestnuts, Rasperry, Almond
Mocha, Egg Nog and Peanut Butter are some of the most requested flavors when
customers order Chicken & Waffles with two crispy-fried chicken wings (in our male
commercial voiceover way)! But, we've also made new friends ... like Chef Lee Anne House,
creator of Sriracha Sweet-Hot Thai Chili Sauce and Thai Chili Hot Honey, and Randy Combs
a local manufacturer of his own hot sauce line: Spicey Rooster (www.spiceyrooster.com)
both enhancing your Chicken & Waffles experience at Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles.
She can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/housemadesriracha.
