“As Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, it is my pleasure to honor The Big Cheese of Miami, Florida as the Senate Small Business of the Week.

“The Big Cheese is not just a great restaurant, they are also an incredible supporter of the Miami community. During the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, they donated food to the Monroe County Emergency Operations Center. The Big Cheese is also the official sponsor of the University of Miami Athletic department, providing both the Hurricanes and their competitors with pre-game meals.  
 
“A true neighborhood favorite, The Big Cheese is an outstanding example of a community-minded small business. I wish them nothing but success in their future endeavors, look forward to watching their continued growth, and to taking my family there again.”
 
Founded in 1984 by lifelong friends, Bill Archer and Garry Duell, The Big Cheese is a family-oriented, affordable restaurant that uses only the finest ingredients. They have an extensive menu that includes everything from Italian favorites to Miami classics. By focusing on quality food and superior customer service, The Big Cheese has become a Miami landmark.
