It's another week for WDTV's "Tasty Tuesday" report and for those living in Bridgeport or visiting, here's a profile on one that is roughly 33 miles - or about a half hour trip -  from Bridgeport north of Bridgeport off Interstate 79.

After graduating from WVU, Jerry Kalaparambath worked in consulting and real estate, but knew his real dream was to start his own business.
 
In 2014 when he bought a small eatery, the High Street Canteen, with his brother.
 
"I felt as if I was always an entrepreneur. I had this itch that I needed to take care of and somehow, life brought me back to Morgantown," he said.
 
Over the years, Jerry realized that downtown was in need of fresh, fast, health food.
 
"I just felt as if there were no options on a major college campus, which made no sense," said Jerry.
 
A Philadelphia native, Jerry drew inspiration from fast-casual health chains in the city and decided to do something similar. So, in February, he opened Mad Fresh, a salad restaurant, in a small building at 218 Prospect Street.
 
"Seeing the reaction when people come in here they're just like 'Wow, we've needed this, I can't wait, I'm going to be here everyday,' and they have been here everyday," Jerry said.
