WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - A middle Georgia couple is giving back to the community in more ways than one, opening up a brand new business bringing new jobs to the area.
For Kristi Guss, it's the beginning of a new chapter.
The Warner Robins native is a new hire at a Shane's Rib Shack in the city.
She's just one of many that work for Danny and Trinette Rosales, a couple who's lived in Warner Robins since 1995, and whose main goal is to serve their community.
"We're all a big family here, not only do we go by teamwork but as far as us girls, as well as the owners and our kitchen staff we're all one family, we work together very well," Guss said.
The Rosales' own two Shane's Rib Shacks in Warner Robins and also a plaza in the city.
"We've always been real involved in the community in particular my wife, and we're always willing to help out, especially with schools the churches and the police department, and the military," Danny Rosales, one of the owners, said.
They want to bring as many jobs to the area as they possibly can and they're looking to create even more.
Nancy Berry helps promote for the Rosales', she says the two have been able to handle the stresses of starting a business in stride.
"You know what, phenomenal, there's just no other word to describe them, they have been amazing, you would think that this has been their 53rd restaurant," Berry said.
The Rosales' are using the restaurant as a vessel to find unique ways to partner with local businesses and non-profits, helping to make their community stronger.
"We do a lot of things that we enjoy, we do it because we want to, not because we have to," Rosales said.
The Rosales' are hosting a grand opening celebration for their new store, this Saturday from 11am to 9pm at 2907 Watson Blvd, Warner Robins, GA.
There will be thousands of dollars in giveaways and a meet and greet with Danny and Trinette.
