Some people do everything to avoid their siblings. But two Olney sisters who opened a restaurant and restored furniture store two years ago work together to provide homemade food to local patrons.
Kim Carlson and Tammy Prestipino, the sisters who own and manage Sisters’ Sandwiches & Such in Olney, Maryland, talked to their husbands for years about opening a furniture store or restaurant, according to Prestipino.
“They said, ‘Just do it already,’” Prestipino said.
So they did, opening up the store in the historical Higgins Tavern on Georgia Avenue in June 2010.
