HARTFORD, Ala. (WDHN) — Traditionally, the six-week spring break period runs from March first through Easter Sunday.
Mom’s kitchen in Hartford is located along state highway 167 — A major north-south route to Florida’s northern Gulf of Mexico.
This week, restaurant employees are seeing a large influx of college students grabbing a meal on their way down to their respective beach destinations.
It means dollars and cents for businesses across the Wiregrass.
“On the weekends the line of traffic outside the restaurant is lined up and our parking lot is full. Our business really during the summer and starting in the spring is good,” Marsha Powell said.
Hartford traditionally sees an increase in local sales taxes during the spring break period. The town sits at the crossroads of state highways 167 and 52.
