LEXINGTON, N.C. — A Triad restaurant owner said opening her restaurant will take longer than she hoped.
You might remember a fire that destroyed Brooker T's Cafe in Lexington in September 2022.
Brooker T’s Café business owners Brooke Bishop and Tammy Cornell said the Lexington community stepped in to help when they discovered the building was on fire.
Cornell hoped to reopen this year. She recently decided to hold off, saying she'd try again next year.
The owner's daughter, Bishop, says contractors have a lot of work to complete.
The co-owner released the following statement:
Unfortunately, we do not foresee being open in 2023. As you know we had a total loss that along with insurance company processes and clean up has taken a while to get going. We absolutely will reopen as soon as possible. We are very excited to have Jason Hedrick doing our rebuild and look forward to a beautiful finished product We have been told to expect 12-16 months.
