Local business owner of Bandido’s Restaurant, James A. Schindler was recently recognized in Forbes.com Book Club for his book titled, Schindler’s Tiny Tales and Whatnot.

At the age of three, Schindler was put into St. Vincent’s Villa, a Catholic orphanage. After he finished the fifth grade, he was placed into a foster home, along with his brother, Chico, where they were terribly mistreated. In spite of his unhappy, poverty stricken childhood, he managed to maintain an extremely positive, cheerful outlook. A graduate of John Carroll University and a successful businessman, he is the founder and CEO of Bandido’s Mexican restaurants.

This is a very easy to read, enjoyable collection of incredibly short, true, and humorous stories, that either happened to Schindler, his family, or his friends and acquaintances.

The book can be purchased at all of the Bandido’s Restaurants in hard cover or paperback.
