We are now open for indoor seating, BUT...

There are some important safety guidelines you need to know.

Many folks were frustrated with us at Granny’s Kitchen when we had not yet opened our dining room. We totally got it, we were frustrated too. Just like the rest of the world we had never been in this situation before and everyday there was a new hurdle to cross. But please believe us when we say we were working very hard to do everything we could to make our business as safe as possible for everyone. So with this said we are now open at 50 percent occupancy.

Several things will be quite different than what everyone is accustomed to seeing.

We will take your temperature before you enter

Of course there will be fewer tables open for seating

We will have a different seating system

We will have only one side of the buffet open and our staff will dish up your food choices for you.

We will use disposable utensils and all condiments will be single use. You may wonder why we will use china but not silver. The answer is that in order to roll and bag silver it must be touched several times before it reaches you and we just don’t want to take any chances.

There will be plexiglass attached to the buffet and cashier area for safety

There will be hand sanitizer everywhere

What we want you to do for us:

Please wear a face covering. If you don’t have one we will provide one and we require that they be worn any time you are not seated at your table.

We will sanitize your hands when you come in the door and each time you go through the buffet line.

Please maintain appropriate social distance of a least 6 feet if possible

What we are going to do for you:

Before we begin work we check temperatures and ask several questions of each staff member. We document each one every day.

Each staff member will wear a mask for your and their protection.

We will wear gloves changing them very frequently

We will routinely clean “high touch” areas every 15 minutes

Tables and chairs will be sanitized after each use.

We have installed an air cleaning system to each of our HVAC units that kills bacteria and viruses in the air.

Each night after we close we use a “whole room” misting system in each dining room, around the buffet area and restrooms.

We have been serving the public at Granny’s for over 36 years and we are truly a family run establishment. Our children were raised working here and have chosen to carry on our family tradition. So now not only are they here but several of our grandchildren and daughters-in-law are also here with us. We also have our beloved staff who are more than just employees, they are also our family. This is why we ask that you understand that we just cannot do “business as usual”. We must keep our family safe.

To our visitors we ask that you take into consideration the fact that you are in the land of the Cherokee. In our culture we revere our elders and feel they must be protected. Almost everyone of us, native or not, have someone that we love and want to protect and we believe that at this point in time the only way to do this is to adhere to the Wear, Wait and Wash mandate set forth by the State of North Carolina and by our leaders of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

We completely understand that some people do not want to wear a face covering for many different reasons and you certainly have the choice to do what you feel is best for you and your family. But we too have the right to do what we feel is best for our family and after extensive research it is our personal belief that masks, sanitizing and social distancing used together is the only way to paving our road back to the way we were. So if you don’t want to wear a face covering we will gladly fix you up with a takeout meal or you can exercise your right to not eat with us at all. That is your right. But we demand our right to protect the people that we love, our staff and our customers, our family, so NO MASK, NO SERVICE. We are not upset about your choice so please don’t be upset about ours. We love our customers and if you choose not to wear a mask we still love you and ask you to come back when this nightmare is over.
