On Thyme Catering and Food Truck owners Corey and Phallin Scott recently launched a hot dog stand known as Glizzies. Their latest project was named after learning that younger generations have started to refer to hot dogs as glizzies.
“We plan to use it for events, birthday parties, weddings and any other special events,” said chef Corey Scott. “We also plan to do pop-up events, but this is a separate business from On Thyme. We love to invest, and this time, we’re doing it with our best friends, Teeson and Tiesha Grady. When we were young, we ate a lot of hot dogs, so we thought it would be cool to open something with a different concept.”
After seven years of culinary experience, the Scotts embarked on their On Thyme food truck venture during the pandemic. In November, they opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant at 918 Castle St. Menu items include the Southern Shrimp Burger, Boneless and Bone-In Wings, Philly Egg Rolls, Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich and the OMG Fish Sandwich.
On Thyme was recently recognized on the national level by popular TikTok food reviewer Keith Lee, who named On Thyme as one of the 10 winners of the Pepsi Dig In Restaurant Royalty Challenge focusing on fan-nominated, Black-owned restaurants across America.
“It was an amazing feeling,” Corey Scott said. “I thought it was cool because I used to watch these food influencers daily but never would have thought I would have a restaurant mentioned worldwide with them. We look at it as a great accomplishment, but we know we still have room to grow.”
He said they’re hoping to expand in the near future.
“Either with On Thyme Part Two or a brunch spot,” he said. “Either way, we will make sure our customers are very happy. On Thyme is a family and community-friendly restaurant. We don’t just serve great food, but we create a very welcoming environment, as well – almost like you are just chilling on your living room couch. We make sure everyone is relaxed and well-fed.”
