Chef Mike Ashley joined new Bushel N Peck owner Mike Bartosiewicz when the latter expanded to Grafton in 2013. Now the duo are planning to inject Ashley's more modern menu options across the chain and into a new fifth location.

For decades, despite an ownership change in 2005, Bushel N Peck has maintained its perch among the city’s go-to sandwich shops, churning out classic, lunchtime favorites with an old-school American deli sensibility.
