New Haven Independent -

Cody Roach at Grand & Atwater Deli: Back in neighborhood, giving back. Amelia with her dad.

When he was living at a halfway house after a stint in prison, Cody Roach called his 9‑year-old daughter and asked what he should do with the rest of his life.

Her suggestion: Buy my grandmother’s deli. Ten years later, Roach is still running Grand & Atwater Deli, which bursts with colorful snacks and inspirational quotes on display in the Fair Haven neighborhood where he grew up.
