Tired of waiting for the expected restaurant/bar boom in Danville, Two Roads Cafe owner Jerry Houck and new partner Shane White are planning to take matters into their own hands.
Their new business venture, Danville Restaurant Group, is looking to open a new eatery, sports bar and catering operation near the intersection of Perryville Road and the U.S. 127 Bypass, and is in the process of gathering investors. Though the proposed establishment does not yet have a name, location or clearly defined menu, Houck said he is "about 70 percent sure at this point" that the concept will become a reality, perhaps before the end of the year.
"Two Roads has been extremely successful in it's five years and we want to use that as a springboard for other ventures, Houck said. "We're looking for investors to leverage the success of this restaurant into the next opportunity. ."
Two Roads Cafe has been sold to Danville Restaurant Group and will remain open downtown with a little remodeling to add a patio and a better space for live entertainment, Houck said. Kathy Crown-Weber, who founded Two Roads with Houck, left the business at the end of last month.
