L & O Greek Specialties
Charles Lawson began the business in 1999 by selling hats, shirts and other items from his home. His partner, Maynard Odom, still operates from his home in Mobile. Lawson opened his first retail store, at 1613 Jackson Boulevard in Tarrant in 2010.
L & O originated the "Greek Coin" as a token of the bond of brotherhood or sisterhood.
