The catering business is relatively new and could be expanded. A new owner could bring in music on a regular basis and provide entertainment to increase patrons. Advertising, coupons and other factors could increase the businesses population. A person or company within the industry could crank this location up and generate more traffic.
There are other eateries in and around Tyler, most being chains and franchises. Few, if any, can provide the atmosphere and food the way they do. This restaurant is a mix between Texas History, a Museum and fine dining; in your boots and jeans. There is nothing like it.
The owners have owned this establishment for years. It’s run its course and they are ready to retire from the restaurant business.
Will train for 2 weeks @ no cost.
