Roy’s Restaurant in Plano hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 22. Not because it is just now opening—the Roy’s in Plano has been around for about 16 years—but because the business has been honored with membership in the Plano Chamber of Commerce.
Plano Chamber members, ambassadors and other guests were treated to a hula dancing show and enjoyed samples from Roy’s menu, such as lobster potstickers in a miso butter sauce and various sushi rolls.
