As a family, with extended family and friends included, we have had many discussions, reflections, tears, and laughs, along with many prayers, trying to see the best path for the future of our business, and our family as a whole. In conclusion, we have decided to not reopen The Homeplace Restaurant.
We are so thankful that we have had the opportunity to serve the Catawba Valley, the Roanoke community, and beyond for 38 plus years. The support we have been given has been beyond amazing.
All those years ago, Harold Wingate (Dad) had a dream that many folks thought just couldn't come true. It did come true, and we were blessed to run a family business for a long time.
After Covid hit, we were closed for 10 plus months, with a small window of 4 months with takeout, including a few weeks trying to have limited indoor dining.
There are many factors to be taken into consideration when trying to bring a business back up and running, especially after the circumstances we have been facing.
Again, our heartfelt thanks to our employees, our loyal customers, and many others for the prayers, support, and love you have shown over the years.
This is such a bitter sweet and emotional decision for our family. We ask for no interviews at this time.
With our sincere thanks, The Wingate Family
RIP The Homeplace
