Through March of this year, the latest figures available, the Chenal Purple Cow has done $468,318 in business; Cantrell, $215,355.

“There are probably a lot of restaurants reporting some improved numbers,” said Tappan, who was president and CEO of Quality Foods Inc. before retiring from that food distribution company in 2003. “We went through some tough years there.”

At one point, Purple Cow had locations in Texas, but those have all closed now.

As for how now, Purple Cow, Tappan said to expect another store or two in central Arkansas, and then he and Vaughn will turn their attention to northwest Arkansas. Northeastern Oklahoma could also enter the picture as well as the Texarkana area, Tappan said.
