Dondi & Christy Hatcher are a blended family of four boys…Mitch (Jenn), Zach (Cheyenne), Nathan (Caroline), and Aidan. Our whole crew resides in Plain City. Dondi owns Eagle Electrical Services and Mitch and Zach work for him. Nathan is studying middle school education at OSU. And Aidan is a high school student at JA.
Zach and Cheyenne have our two adorable grandchildren, Easton and Mia. Easton is part of the naming of our shop “Lil e”. The second part of the name is that Dondi owns the big “e” with Eagle, so we said that the ice cream shop would be the “Lil e”. And after Mia came along, we added our “Mia Milkshakes”.
During ice cream season, you will see all our family chipping in. Christy is the owner of Lil e’s and is at the shop every day. Dondi is Lil e’s problem solver and enjoys making French fries in the afternoons. Mitch keeps up with the mowing. Cheyenne and Nathan are managers that we rely on greatly. And Aidan has been taking orders at the register since he was 13.
Lil e’s serves as a platform for our family to give back to the community. While this “lil” shop serves ice cream, it also helps our family serve blessings to others.
